BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WOOD) — Three men have been arrested following an investigation into residential burglaries in Pennfield Township.

Over the last few weeks, police say there have been several burglaries near the area of St. Mary’s Lake and Huntington Road.

On Wednesday, deputies responded to another residential burglary on Huntington Road where they found suspects had climbed onto the roof and entered through an upper-story window.

Suspects loaded several pieces of property into the homeowner’s vehicle and took off, according to police.

Investigators worked with ONSTAR and located the vehicle abandoned at the Bedford Mill Park in Bedford Township, but the stolen property was gone.

Investigators received information that some of the property was at two homes on Mosher Street in Battle Creek.

At one of the homes, authorities recovered a large majority of the stolen property, including methamphetamine.

During a search of the second home, deputies discovered a false wall and entry door into a hidden section in the basement where they found an active meth lab and a large amount of meth waste.

Calhoun County Deputies also recovered items believed to be stolen in other area burglaries.

Three men from Battle Creek were arrested during the raids on outstanding warrants for Felony Possession of Methamphetamine, probation violation, and strong-armed robbery.

Investigators are asking anyone with information about this case to please contact Detective Steven Hinkley at the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Detective Division at 269.781.0880.
