Police investigate theft, break-ins

A Michigan State Police trooper is investigating whether a 24-year-old Pinckney man, arrested in connection to the theft of a bow and arrow, is also responsible for multiple break-ins that have occurred recently in Livingston County.

A Michigan State Police sergeant at the Brighton post said Tuesday that Trooper Rene Gonzalez, who is investigating, found the stolen bow and arrow at a local pawnshop.
Other recovered items, including tools, stolen from multiple break-ins have been linked to the suspect, police said.

Police said Gonzalez was dispatched Jan. 20 to the victim's home in the 4800 block of Bentley Lake Road in Marion Township for a report of a stolen bow and arrow valued at $500.
Additional details, including whether the suspect made statements to police, were not immediately available due to the ongoing investigation.

Officers from the Pinckney Police Department assisted the state police.
