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 homeowner was away and was alerted on his phone of an intruder via his home surveillance system. 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.
