Ervin John Spivey, 36, of Sebewaing, was arrested Nov. 24 after breaking into a home in Emmet County.

A trooper was called to a home Thursday on W. Bear Road in Bear Creek Township, after a report of an alarm system going off, according to Michigan State Police.

The homeowner was not home at the time, but was watching an unknown man in the home through security cameras after being notified of the alarm.

The trooper got to the home and saw a vehicle parked in the driveway, and saw the garage door was open and damaged.

While waiting for backup, the trooper saw Spivey leave the home through the broken doorway. He was ordered to the ground and did so without issue.

Spivey was arrested by the trooper and an officer from the Petoskey Public Safety Department, and lodged in the Emmet County Jail.

Spivey was arraigned Monday for one count home invasion in the third degree.

His bond was set at $5,000 cash surety. He is due back in court Dec. 14.
