(FLORENCE TOWNSHIP) – The victims of a theft helped set up the alleged suspects which led to their arrest.
In September, a four wheeler was stolen from a residence in the 17000 block of Banker Street in Florence Township. On October 19, the victim of that theft and a friend developed information of a person in Three Rivers who had the device and was trying to sell it.
The victim and his friend posed as buyers and set up a meeting to see and buy the four wheeler. When the suspects showed up at the Featherstone residence on October 20, Michigan State Police were to the home.
The four wheeler was recovered. Taken into custody were 30 year old Joseph May and his father 53 year old Jame May, both of Three Rivers. The two were arrested and arraigned on charges of felony possession of stolen property and parole violation.
Joseph May's girlfriend, 25 year old Heather Teal of Three Rivers, was also at the scene and arrested for an outstanding warrant for felony probation violation. All three are being held in the St. Joseph County Jail.
The St. Joseph County Sheriff's Department assisted in this case along with the MSP's District Auto Theft Unit. The matter remains under investigation and additional charges may be filed.
