Burglary suspect caught; others remain at large

Police caught one of the suspects in a burglary in Norton Shores about four hours after the crime was reported. Norton Shores Police Chief Daniel Shaw said officers were called to a burglary in progress in the 6700 block of Grand Haven Road at around noon Thursday. The officers attempted to secure a 1-square-mile section of wooded property into which the suspects had fled on foot. Michigan State Police K-9 teams attempted to track the suspects; however, they were able to escape, Shaw said.

Norton Shores Police were also assisted by the Fruitport Township, Muskegon Township and Roosevelt Park police departments.
