January 28, 2014

LUDINGTON — Two Flint men have been arrested by the Mason County Sheriff’s Office in relation to a breaking and entering in Amber Township. Sheriff Kim Cole said detectives charged Bryan James Carrell, 21, and Victor George Perreca, 19, each with home invasion first degree, three counts of felony firearms, receiving and concealing firearms and larceny of firearms — all felonies.

Cole said the two were caught by Reed City Police following a taffic stop on January 23 at 5:15 a.m. He said a Reed City police officer made a traffic stop in the city of Reed City after he observed a traffic violation.  “The officer was able to identify the three occupants in the vehicle and also noticed numerous items in the vehicle in question,” Cole said.

The driver, a 21 year-old Flushing man was arrested on traffic related charges and lodged in the Osceola County Jail.  Reed City put out a broadcast via LEIN (Law Enforcement Information Network) with regards to property found in the vehicle.

At 9:43 a.m. on the Jan. 23, Mason County sheriff deputies were dispatched to a residence in the 500 block of Therese Avenue in Amber Township regarding a breaking & entering complaint.

“Deputies were able to collect valuable evidence at the scene, interview neighbors and identify property which had been reportedly stolen,” Cole said. “This property was matched to items found in the suspect vehicle.  Among the items recovered was jewelry, guns, welding equipment and various tools.”

Cole said detectives from the Mason County Sheriff’s Office traveled to Osceola County and interviewed the suspect.  “Information was gathered from this subject linking him to the B&E in Mason County and arrest warrants were obtained in Mason County related to the B&E.”

Cole said the house was a seasonal home and the case appears to be an isolated incident. A warrant has been issued for the third suspect.
