ISABELLA COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Hundreds of items meant for a new hotel were stolen, and now troopers say a husband and wife are under arrest in connection with the thefts.

Michigan State Police got a tip about multiple trailer loads of items that had been stolen from the site of a hotel under construction in Mt. Pleasant.

Their investigation led them to two homes in Harrison, and three 26-foot rental truckloads of stolen construction materials and hotel furnishings were found.

Items like mattresses, box springs, bathtubs, drywall, toilets, armoires, screws, and many other construction materials, including suspected crystal meth and marijuana, were among the items recovered.

Troopers report the Harrison couple were employees of the construction company, and are expected to be arraigned on June 1 on charges relating to the case.

The items were returned to the owner this week.
