AMBER TOWNSHIP — A 31-year-old Belding, Michigan man and a 33-year-old Fenwick, Michigan woman were arrested Monday, Oct. 12, shortly before 3 a.m. on multiple felony charges after allegedly stealing a truck and trailer and then stealing building supplies from local stores that they loaded onto the trailer, according to Michigan State Police Sgt. Dan Thomas of the Hart post.

Troopers observed a suspicious truck and trailer leaving the Home Depot store and made a traffic stop on US 10 near the Meijer gas station, Thomas said. When the troopers ran the truck’s license plate, it came back as stolen, he said. The trailer was loaded with stolen building supplies, and it was also discovered that the pair had “multiple warrants from other agencies,” he said. They were also found to be in possession of a handgun and counterfeit money.

The suspects were arrested on numerous charges including receiving and concealing stolen property, carrying a concealed weapon, felon in possession of a firearm, possession of counterfeit money, larceny and providing false information to police. The man was also charged with driving while license suspended.

Thomas credited the troopers’ “good, ol’ cop work” for the arrests, because they acted on a hunch after seeing something suspicious.

Both suspects are lodged in the Mason County Jail.
