SHELBY TOWNSHIP — Three suspects who allegedly committed a breaking and entering of a home in the 900 block of South Oceana Drive Monday, Oct. 10, were captured by police and ultimately confessed to the crime, according to Oceana County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Craig Mast.

A motorist called 911 at 11:45 a.m. after witnessing three male suspects, who are ages 15, 16 and 17, making entry into the home, Mast said. The witness told police that the three suspects were seen walking north on Oceana Drive, wearing black hoodies.

Several items were missing from the home, including approximately $500 in cash and a gold watch, Mast said. Most of the stolen items have been recovered except the cash.

It was not immediately known if the house they broke into was locked.

The sheriff’s office, along with the Shelby Police Department, located the three suspects at different locations, Mast said. The suspects, who all live in Shelby, had the day off of school from Duck Creek Alternative Education in Muskegon, he said.

The 17-year-old is being charged an adult, and the other two suspects are juveniles. The police report has been submitted to the Oceana County Prosecutor’s Office, seeking an arrest warrant for the oldest suspect and juvenile petitions for the other two suspects.
