HOLLAND TWP., MI (WHTC) - An alert homeowner prevented a burglary loss this morning in a neighborhood on Holland’s North Side.
According to Ottawa County Sheriff’s Sergeant Kevin Allman, the unnamed victim was roused from sleep around 8 AM by the sound of breaking glass at the residence on Briarwood Drive, off of James Street between US-31 and Beeline Road. While investigating the source of the intrusion, which was the window to a door, the victim then heard another sound of breaking glass and was able to see the suspect, described as a white man in his late teens to early 20’s, about 5-9 with a thin build, wearing a camouflage hoodie and backpack with white tennis shoes. The suspect fled immediately on foot towards the area of Ashbourne and Redwood streets to the west, while the suspect was unhurt.
The suspect remains at large, and anyone with any information on the incident is asked to contact the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department or Silent Observer (877-88-SILENT; http://mosotips.com).
