MECOSTA COUNTY, Mich. — A man is in custody after leading deputies on a chase through two counties.

It all started just before 10 p.m. Saturday at a home in Morton Township in Mecosta County.

Deputies say they were called to the home for a burglary alarm. When they arrived on scene, they found a car on the side of the road outside the house.

The driver took off and led deputies on a chase on eastbound M-20 into Isabella County before the car ran out of gas and stopped a few miles west of Mt. Pleasant.

Deputies arrested the driver who is a 41-year-old Norton Shores man. They say he broke into the Morton Township home, stole gas, and was driving a stolen car out of Grand Rapids.

The man is being held on numerous charges at the Mecosta County Jail.
