Police Departments Work Together to Take Down Drug, Theft Ring

Several police departments worked together to take down a drug and theft ring in Clare and Gladwin counties.

On Friday, Clare County deputies learned of places around both counties where stolen items and illegal drugs were being kept.

Several departments banded together, searching three locations and recovering stolen property and drugs.

In all, they arrested seven people.

Gale Walters of Gladwin is facing charges from fraudulent checks to running a scam, Brooke Walters for being an accessory after the fact, and Ronald Driver for drug crimes and felony firearm.

The other four have yet to be arraigned.

The Clare County sheriff is asking anyone who may have been a victim of fraudulent check activity from the JRI Home Improvement Company to contact them.
