Authorities: Home invasion may be tied to Facebook post

TRAVERSE CITY — A Bingham Township home invasion may be linked to a resident's Facebook post announcing they'd be out of town, authorities said.

Leelanau County Sheriff's Lt. Clint Kerr said the homeowners on Saturday returned from a Michigan State University basketball game in East Lansing  to find their home was broken into.

"We don't see many home invasions at that time of night," he said.
