Man arrested for resisting police under investigation for break-in

SHELBY — A 39-year-old Hesperia man wanted on an outstanding warrant was arrested by Oceana County sheriff’s deputies Friday, Sept. 15, at 2 p.m. on State Street by Klotz Auto Parts after he allegedly resisted arrest, according to Oceana County Sheriff Craig Mast.

The man is under investigation for a breaking and entering of a pole barn that was reported to police earlier that day in the 7000 block of South 142nd Avenue in Otto Township, according to Sheriff Mast. Forced entry to a side door was used to gain access to the building. Items stolen include: a portable heater valued at $3,300; a generator valued at $1,000; a lawn tractor valued at $300; a propane tank valued at $55; and 10 gallons of diesel fuel.

Deputies initiated a traffic stop in Shelby when they spotted the suspect who was known to be wanted on a warrant. He tried to leave the scene but a taser was displayed, and the man was arrested. 

The breaking and entering remains under investigation.
