CRYSTAL, Mich — An Ithaca man has been arrested and charged with trying to steal metal.

Investigators with the Montcalm County Sheriff’s Department say that on Sunday, Trevor Haynak, 20, and a 16-year-old boy from Ithaca were in Crystal when they found some metal in a wooded area. Then the owner of the property confronted them and called the police.

Haynak was arraigned Monday on a larceny charge of more than $200 but less than $1,000. Police believe the two suspects were going to sell the metal for scrap, which “has been an ongoing problem throughout the state,” according to a media release.
