Authorities seek Mancelona suspect

MANCELONA — Authorities are seeking help finding a suspect who broke into a Mancelona residence and stole a flat screen television, a generator and tools.

“We’re just hoping somebody saw something,” said Antrim County Sheriff Dan Bean.

Deputies learned about the 3222 Wetzel Lake Road break-in on Thursday. The suspect forced the house’s back door open with a prying tool and also damaged a door inside the garage. A generator, chain saw, tool and a Dynex flat screen television were reported stolen.

Witnesses described seeing a red, older model pickup truck with a cover backed into the driveway on Tuesday or Wednesday. Bean said no witnesses have yet reported seeing a suspect.

Members of the public with information are asked to call 231-533-8627 ext 1.
