Kent County Sheriff's Office and Tactical Unit arrests home invasion suspect Sunday morning

Just before 3:00 AM Sunday morning, a residence was broken into along Peterson Rd just east of Myers Lake Ave in Courtland TWP. The homeowner was able to escape the residence while the suspect stayed inside and made threats of a shootout with police.  This was not a random crime, but the suspect and victim were known to each other.

Kent County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to the home and attempted negotiations, but the suspect was not cooperative and remained inside. The KCSO Tactical Team, Negotiators, and Technical Services Unit were called to the scene.

Contact with the suspect was lost until around 8:30 AM. Negotiators were able to make phone contact and the suspect was seen moving throughout the home. Firearms were known to be in the residence and the suspect's truck. The suspect came outside, tried to get in his vehicle, and was uncooperative with officers' commands. Less-lethal rounds of pepper ball and bean bag were deployed and struck the suspect. He retreated back into the garage, but after a few more minutes, he returned peacefully and surrendered.  

The suspect is a 40-year-old Muskegon man who was subsequently lodged at the Kent County Jail for Home Invasion and Aggravated Stalking.
