PARK TWP., MI (WHTC) - Smokes were the apparent target of burglars along the south shore of Lake Macatawa this morning.
Ottawa County Sheriff’s Detective Lieutenant Mark Bennett and fellow deputies were called to The Store party store on 160th Avenue in Park Township around 1:40 AM. Neighbors were aroused by a loud noise, and three men were seen breaking a store window in getting access inside. By the time authorities arrived, the men had fled the scene, and canine units failed to track down any scent.
The men, who took 20 cartons of cigarettes, were described as being masked and wearing dark clothing, with investigators hoping to enhance the store’s surveillance video images in order to help identify the suspects. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Sheriff’s Department or Silent Observer (877-88-SILENT, http://mosotips.com).
