Three men have been arrested for allegedly being engaged in many breaking and entering thefts throughout Genesee and Saginaw counties, as per police statements.
Flint Township Police Department launched an investigation when a work truck, multiple trailers, and about $200,000 in tools were stolen from an industrial site earlier this month.
During the course of the investigation, authorities discovered that the three alleged suspects were perhaps involved in multiple other break-ins and thefts throughout mid-Michigan, most notably the theft of five vehicles, including three classic cars, from a Frankenmuth resident.
The investigation resulted in a collaboration of several police forces. During the operation, more than $250,000 in stolen automobiles, as well as several tools, trailers, and other items, were recovered.
The stolen items were discovered stashed around mid-Michigan, according to police, although many of them have been restored to their original owners.
Ronald Hawley, Timothy Childers, and Nickolaus Bristol are now facing the following charges in connection with their alleged crimes shown above in the image.
