2 arrested for alleged vehicle theft in Allegan Co.
HOPKINS TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Two people were arrested Wednesday for allegedly stealing a vehicle and running away from authorities in Allegan County.
Authorities responded to a report of a stolen vehicle Wednesday morning in Hopkins. When they got to there, they saw the vehicle and began a pursuit.
Authorities say the suspects were able to evade and eventually lose the trooper, but the stolen vehicle was later found unoccupied.
Witnesses reported seeing a man breaking into a nearby home. When officers tried to get a hold of the homeowner to search for the suspect, she came running out and said there was a stranger inside.
Authorities said the man crawled onto the roof for some time before surrendering to police. A second suspect in the vehicle theft was tracked down a few blocks away.
