MONTROSE – Several breaking & entering [B & E] cases have been investigated in Montrose Township and the City of Montrose recently.

According to Montrose Police Chief Darrell Ellis, approximately $10,000 worth of stolen property has just been recovered in conjunction with six B & Es that occurred over the last several months in the City of Montrose. The property owners have been contacted.

Montrose Police received a lead from another police department, located in Saginaw County, where the property was discovered.

Recently, Montrose Police cleared up five B & E home invasions that occurred in Montrose Township. According to Chief Ellis, on Aug. 20, a homeowner found the suspect inside the home. The suspect fled, but the homeowner called police and gave a good description. As a result, the suspect was caught as police were responding to the 911 call. The subject was arraigned and lodged in the Genesee County Jail. The subject has been tied to a string of B & Es in the township.

In another incident, on Sept. 6, a homeowner found an intoxicated male in the house sleeping in bed.
