'Extremely dangerous' man sent to prison

SUTTONS BAY — A one-time “extremely dangerous” fugitive is headed to prison to serve sentences on multiple felony convictions from Grand Traverse and Leelanau counties.

Tahca Takiya-Mahpiya Milk, 29, was sentenced by 13th Circuit Court Judge Phillip Rodgers on Monday to a minimum of 23 months and a maximum of 84 months.

Authorities in February called Milk “extremely dangerous” as they pursued him as a suspect in a drug case, a Leelanau County home invasion, for flashing a stolen gun at a Traverse City party and absconding probation in Manistee County.

He eventually was arrested in Garfield Township and pleaded guilty to delivering and manufacturing a controlled substance, a second offense of attempted home invasion and possession of stolen firearms. Other charges, including a habitual offender enhancement, were dismissed with the guilty plea.

Milk will serve a 23- to 84-month sentence concurrent with the shorter sentences for the other charges.
