Attempted Crawford County Break-In Leads to Police Search

An attempted break-in in Crawford County turned into a police search for a man who neighbors say may have had a gun.

State troopers were called to a Grayling home last Thursday when someone told them Shadrick Bencheck tried to break-in. 

They say Bencheck broke a window, but ran away when police were called.

A neighbor told them she saw him possibly with a gun, but state police never found a gun on him when they arrested him that night.

Troopers say there was also no evidence that Bencheck got into the home.

Bencheck is charged with three counts of assault with a dangerous weapon and malicious destruction of property.
