Calhoun County, MI – Troopers from the Michigan State Police (MSP) post in Marshall are diligently investigating two recent theft crimes that took place in Calhoun County.

Takeaways:

  • MSP investigating two recent thefts in Calhoun County
  • The first theft occurred July 12, estimated $6,500 value stolen
  • The second theft occurred July 14 on Borgert Rd in Sherman Township, $2,000 value
  • Comes amid an uptick in county crime including armed robbery and homicide
  • Teens in court for beating death of a high school student
  • MSP seeking tips from the public to help ID suspects

The first theft occurred during the overnight hours of July 11th into July 12th in the 8900 block of J Drive South, located just outside the city limits of Battle Creek. According to Detective James McClennan of the MSP, the stolen items included a dual axle Load Trail enclosed trailer, and a DeWalt 3000 PSI pressure washer.

A Craftsman 25cc gas-powered leaf blower, two Warner 10-foot fiberglass extension ladders, a Master Force 5 gallon 3 peak HP wet/dry vacuum, Dewalt metal shears for cutting metal and steel, a Craftsman 27cc gas-powered weed cutter, two Stihl chainsaws, a Makita cordless drill kit, and various small hand tools. The estimated value of the stolen goods is said to be close to $6,500.

The second incident occurred two days later on July 14th between the hours of 4 a.m. and 9 a.m. in the 63000 block of Borgert Road in Sherman Township, just outside of Albion. According to the police report, the items stolen were a full-sized football table arcade game and a 9-foot Ping-Pong table. The estimated loss from this theft is approximately $2,000.

Detective McClennan said these two thefts come during a time when the county has seen a slight uptick in various crimes, including armed robbery, arson, and even a homicide. Just in February of this year, two local teens were brought into juvenile court in connection with the beating death of 17-year-old high school student Jack Snyder. Investigators believe the teens offered Snyder a ride home late one night, though the events leading up to his death remain unclear.

Anyone who may have information about these two theft crimes, or any other criminal or suspicious activity in Calhoun County, is encouraged to contact the MSP Marshall Post at (269) 558-0500. Tips can remain anonymous. The detectives are hoping additional leads from the public may help identify potential suspects and assist with ongoing investigations in the county.
