PORTAGE, Mich. — At least nine vehicles were broken in to at eight different addresses in Portage.

The city of Portage says breaking and entering reports came in from Sitka Spruce Street, Anna’s Lane and Baywood Drive.

We’re told the Portage Department of Public Safety responded to initial reports that unlocked vehicles had been broken in to late Wednesday night in the area of Sitka Spruce Street and Silver Fir Street.

Officers arrested two groups of people and recovered a stolen vehicle out of Kalamazoo, the city says. We’re also told an unregistered sidearm and a handful of stolen credit cards were also recovered.
