Grand Traverse County Deputies Arrest Man Accused of Break-Ins

Two months, four break-ins — worth more than $10,000.

Grand Traverse County deputies say they have their thief.   

The break-ins happened between December 2014 and January 2015 in Peninsula Township, Garfield Township, East Bay Township and in Traverse City.

Chad Matzen is now charged with four counts of home invasion second-degree.

Deputies say Matzen broke into four homes.

He stole jewelry and other items. 

Deputies say two of the victims knew Matzen and two did not.

The investigation continues, because they believe more people are involved, and there could be other cases too.
