The suspects were arrested by Ottawa County Sheriff’s deputies as they tried to drive away from the store, 15000 U.S. 31, at about 5 p.m. Thursday.

The store’s loss-prevention staff confronted the men in the store after recognizing them as the suspects in a theft of liquor there on July 19, said Capt. Mark Bennett of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department. The suspects ran from the store and the store’s staff called police.

Deputies said about $350 worth of liquor stolen from a Muskegon-area Meijer store was recovered from the suspects’ vehicle. Bennett said the liquor was returned to that store.

The suspects are both 20 years old and are now lodged in the Ottawa County Jail awaiting arraignment on retail fraud charges. One is from Muskegon and the other is from Warren.

Bennett said there were outstanding warrants for the Muskegon man’s arrest on retail fraud charges.

Detectives are working with other agencies in their investigation, Bennett said. Anyone who has information about the case is asked to call Silent Observer at 877-88-SILENT.

Sorry but "Meijer" and "high end liquor" do not belong in the same sentence together.


I immediately thought of you and Vlad when reading the heading, but upon greater reflection, I came to your same conclusion.

Surprisingly your comment hurt a lot more than I thought it would...


I understand. I felt the same sharp ping of sadness when you accused the enhanced, buxom Energizer of being a kayakian. It still gets me,..please excuse me while I go get a tissue...


Never look a gift horse in the mouth - free bourbon? I could gargle with Ancient Age for its germ killing qualities.


Whooaaa, pardner - let's think this through. Free? Free stuff? Red flag "Taker" markers?

And I so would love to make a quip about your need to gargle due to the stuff that comes from your....but I won't, and instead will just giggle politely at your gargle comment.


According to the hillbilly psycho SCH339339333999-399 you're all suppose to be outside enjoying this beautiful day instead of hiding out in your basements, typing off-topic comments that he more than likely wouldn't approve. :-S

Me? I just came home long enough to eat some lunch and then I'm heading back downtown. My goal is to spend as much time outside, enjoying Coast Guard week as possible. We'll be wading thru hip-deep snow again before you know it.

Carry on.


Funny you mentioned this. I felt a momentary pang of guilt, brought on by SCH339339333999-399's previous rebuke, but since I spent the vast majority of the last week outdoors, today is a tad cloudy (where I live anyway), and I have a list of chores as long as SCH339339333999-399's handle awaiting me, I feel justified in dabbling in social media. Just you wait - it won't be long I'll be downtown on those elephant ears like white on rice (Not).

"We'll be wading thru hip-deep snow again before you know it." Geez - I hope SCH339339333999-399 isn't rubbing off on you!! 8^s


"Geez - I hope SCH339339333999-399 isn't rubbing off on you!! 8^s"

Alright dear lady...this is the second attempt in recent times to try and find a luv connection between me and the hillybilly fool. If you keep this line of questioning up I gonna get cranky. ;-S




That's 3. :-O


Pardon the intrusion, but shouldn't you have included "BANG" ?


I thought they had specials on the weekend?


Ok,I gotta ask. Does the moniker Barry Soetoro mean something? Anyway there is some Johnny Walker Blue Label on the top shelf at Meijer and to me that's pretty top shelf at over $ 100.00 a bottle.

Tri-cities realist

You're on the Internet look it up...
