AMBER TOWNSHIP — Two men, described as illegal aliens, fled the scene of a rollover crash on U.S. 31 Tuesday night, resulting in their arrests following a search by law enforcement. The crash took place on the northbound U.S. 31 off-ramp for westbound U.S. 10 (the loop). Mason County Sheriff’s Office personnel along with Pere Marquette Township Fire Department were dispatched at 8:12 p.m. for a report of a minivan that had rolled over and landed on its top.

Witnesses told MCP they had observed two men flee the scene immediately after the crash. Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole said no one was at the vehicle when emergency crews arrived. Deputies found numerous beer cans in the vehicle and the MSCO K-9 unit, Cash the dog, was called-in and tracked the suspects for 30 minutes before they were found running through nearby woods.

Both suspects were arrested and charged with being disorderly. They are being detained for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
