Several break-ins at businesses in Kent, Kalamazoo counties

(FOX 17) — Authorities are investigating yet another round of break-ins at businesses across West Michigan.

The most recent happened around 3 a.m. Monday at the Target on S. Westnedge Avenue in Portage.

The store's front door was found shattered, along with the front window of the nearby Game Stop.

Security cameras helped officials track down the suspect, who was found outside the store and arrested by police.

An 18-year-old man is now facing charges after allegedly confessing to both crimes. His name has not been released.

Investigators are also searching for the suspect or suspects involved in a break-in at a cell phone store.

The owner of the Cricket Wireless Store, 3452 Alpine Ave. NW in Walker, says the store was broken into around 1 a.m. Monday.

The thieves got away with several items, but it isn't clear what exactly was taken.

The T-Mobile store at Centerpointe Mall, 3583 28th St. SE in Grand Rapids was also broken into overnight.

In all cases, the suspects busted the windows out of the store to gain access.
