GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A man suspected of breaking into about a dozen homes in Kent County was listed as a parole absconder at the time of the crimes.

He also has prior convictions for breaking and entering, operating while intoxicated, possession of a controlled substance, maintaining a drug house and misdemeanor domestic violence.
