Mecosta Co. Man Accused Of Multiple Break-Ins

A Big Rapids man found himself in handcuffs early Thursday morning, accused of breaking into a home, and multiple cars.

Police say a homeowner saw the man breaking into her garage.

They followed the suspect's footprints, and arrested him at his home.

Police say there's evidence the 18-year-old was involved in other break-ins of both buildings and cars going back to last fall.

He's also linked to several car break-ins in Massachusetts.

He faces several charges including 2 counts of felony home invasion, trespassing, possession of marijuana and multiple counts of breaking into vehicles.
