MONTCALM COUNTY, Mich. – Montcalm County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested a 40-year-old Orleans man for stealing several items from the Dollar General in Sheridan.

On Tuesday, Brian Keith Hansen was charged with retail theft.

According to an employee of the store, Hansen stood in the clearance aisle from around 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Monday evening. They made contact with him on multiple occasions and called police after becoming concerned that he was in the process of stealing things.
