A 36-year-old Ishpeming man was arrested Wednesday for a Garfield Township home invasion.

The Grand Traverse Sheriff's Office responded to a burglary in Garfield Township just before 10am Wednesday.

The supect entered the home and took a jar of loose change totaling roughly $100 and a winter coat.

The photos of the suspect’s vehicle and descriptions of the items stolen were disseminated over the patrol log. At approximately 1:30pm, Green Lake Township's community police officer spotted a vehicle matching the suspect vehicle parked on Karlin Road.

The stolen items were still inside the suspect's car. The deputy also noted other evidence linking the driver to the break-in. All of the stolen items were recovered, and the suspect was arrested on charges of home invasion and driving with a suspended license.
