Two suspects have been arrested for their alleged involvement in a series of incidents in Shiawassee County, including burglaries to a church and a barn, motor vehicle thefts and larcenies from several vehicles.
The Shiawassee County Sheriff's Office arrested Luke Daniel Warth, 17, and Alex Ivan Cameron, 17, for the incidents. The two teenagers have been charged with five felonies and three misdemeanors, the sheriff's office said in a news release.
They are currently lodged at the Shiawassee County Jail on a $5,000 bond.
On July 2 deputies were dispatched to the 8700 mile of East Bennington Road in Vernon Township for larcenies from automobiles.
During the investigation, deputies discovered an unknown subject was traveling on a three-wheel, all-terrain vehicle close to where the thefts occurred. Shortly after, a resident reported seeing a three-wheel ATV arrive at a residence in the general area.
Deputies responded to the location and discovered what was later learned to be a stolen three-wheel ATV from a location nearby.
As the investigation continued, six additional incidents were discovered including the burglary of the Grace Lutheran Church of Durand, the theft of a golf cart from Leisure Lake Campground, a camper trailer burglary and additional thefts from motor vehicles.
The golf cart was recovered after the suspects allegedly drove it into Leisure Lake, the sheriff's office said.
The investigation is ongoing and the Shiawassee Sheriff's Office is anticipating one additional suspect will be charged.
The sheriff's office was assisted by the Durand Police Department.
