AMBER TWP. — A 23-year-old Ludington man has been arrested in connection to a Saturday night breaking and entering at Grassa’s Farm Market, 2442 W. U.S. 10-31, Amber Township. Justin Stever has been arraigned on the charge of breaking and entering with intent.

Sheriff Kim Cole said the incident happened Saturday, Nov. 9, around 7 p.m. Stever was identified from a security camera. Sheriff Cole said investigating deputy Matthew Warmuskirken passed around footage of the robbery to other deputies. “Deputy Brandon Romero had assisted the Michigan State Police on a suspect vehicle call Saturday night around 7:30 p.m. on Johnson Road east of Stiles Road. While he and the troopers were on that scene, Mr. Stever and his accomplice — who will be arrested soon — walked up, identifying the car as theirs.”

At that time, law enforcement did not know that Grassa’s had been robbed, Cole said. “Deputy Romero was able to identify the suspects based on what they were wearing that evening and also the location of their vehicle. This is a perfect example of our citizens helping us catch criminals. We had a citizen see a suspect vehicle and called 911. Sometimes that may turn out to be nothing, but in this case, it resulted in an arrest.”

Cole said a warrant is out on the other suspect.
