ZEELAND, MI (WHTC) - The hopes of three young Zeeland men to burgle a house near their home were thwarted by a nosy neighbor.
According to Ottawa County Sheriff’s Detective Lieutenant Mark Bennett, a woman living on Little Creek Court, in the area of 96th Avenue and Roosevelt Avenue, was startled by the sound of breaking glass nearby, and her dog barking towards something seen in the window. The neighbor saw three men dressed in black attempting to enter the house, called 911, and screamed at the men, apparently scaring them off without any loot taken.
Two of the unnamed suspects were captured nearby; a third was caught a short time later. The men, ranging in age between 18 and 22, were jailed pending arraignment on various charges.
