SIDNEY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Eight boys may face charges after a series of break-ins at an elementary school in Montcalm County.
Thanks to help from the public, the Montcalm County Sheriff’s Office said they were able to identify the suspects, who range in age from seven to 13 years old.
The break-ins happened over the course of two weekends at the Central Montcalm Upper Elementary School, located at 1488 South Sheridan Road.
The first incident involved a break-in into a storage shed on school property. Items were taken from the shed, but they were later found on the property.
The second incident — which deputies believe happened between Friday, June 5 and Sunday, June 7 — the suspects broke into the school. Once inside the school, the suspects ate food, rode bicycles in the hallways and stole two large teddy bears.
Police said the teddy bears were recovered and returned to the school.
The case has been turned over to the Montcalm County Prosecutor’s Office for review on possible charges.
