MONTCALM COUNTY, Mich. – Montcalm County Sheriff’s Deputies are looking for suspects after two separate break-ins were reported Monday morning, and officers feel they may be related.

At 8:06 a.m. deputies were called to the Lutheran Settlement Church at 1031 S. Johnson Road. Deputies found that a food pantry and the main church building had been broken into. Police say evidence from the scene would suggest two subjects entered the building and may have been dropped off by a vehicle.

Around 9:36 a.m., deputies were also called to Michael’s Farm Market at 1944 N. Greenville Road for another break-in. Again, officers say it appears two individuals committed the act and may have been dropped off by a car.

Stolen property includes computers and money.

Anyone who may have witnessed suspicious vehicles or activity in those areas either Sunday night or early Monday morning are asked to call the Sheriff’s office at 989-831-7590 or the tip line at 989-831-7593.
