Police investigate attempted break-ins to seasonal Stony Lake homes

By Allison Scarbrough, Editor

The Oceana County Sheriff Office is seeking the public’s assistance in tracking down a suspect vehicle involved in a string of break-in attempts in the Stony Lake area, according to Det. Mark Hiddema.

“We’ve had several attempted breaking and enterings in the Stony Lake area, and we have a suspect vehicle from one of the cameras,” said Hiddema. “It looks like they’re trying to go after seasonal homes.

“At the beginning of the week, we had one that was broken into, and it looked like the vehicle drove into the driveways of five neighboring houses.

“A Texas license plate was stolen, and they also worked on stealing a vehicle that was parked in the driveway, but they couldn’t get to it. It looks like they’re casing the area.”

Nothing else has been reported stolen in the cases that the sheriff’s office is investigating. However, items were stolen in a break-in in the area being investigated by the Michigan State Police, Hart post, he said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Hiddema 231-873-6772.
