The charges stem from a series of crimes that started at 8 a.m. Thursday. The Allegan County Sheriff’s Office believes the couple broke into three Watson Township homes and stole two vehicles, along with some food, two guns and money.

Authorities arrested the couple Thursday night, after tracking the second stolen vehicle to Lapham’s home.

Undersheriff Frank Baker says additional assault charges could be filed against Jenkins’ attacker.
