Leelanau County Police Arrest Home Invasion Suspect

The Leelanau County Sheriff’s Office says they’ve arrested a suspect in several home invasions.

A man broke into a home on South Shore Drive in May. 

The man living there woke up, and saw the suspect in his kitchen. The intruder ran away.

Then last week a woman heard someone coming into her house, also on South Shore Drive, through a sliding glass door.

She called police and they found a man walking around.

When they approached him, he pushed an officer to the ground and took off.

Deputies arrested a man living in Benzie County.

He will be formally charged with attempted home invasion and attacking an officer, and could face more charges later.
