A father and son team was arrested early Wednesday after a traffic stop in Holland revealed the men had more than $30,000 worth of stolen property in their vehicle, said Lt. Mark Bennett of the Ottawa County Sheriff's Department. Holland Police stopped the 1999 Jeep Cherokee for a traffic violation about 4:20 a.m. Wednesday, Bennett said. Police noted suspicious property in the vehicle and, upon investigation, saw a tag from Sawyer Nursery on one of the items.

Bennett said Holland Police contacted the Sheriff’s Department, which dispatched deputies to the Sawyer Nursery, 5401 Port Sheldon Road in Blendon Township. The deputies found that a break-in had occurred.

The two men stopped in Holland, ages 53 and 31, were arrested for receiving and concealing stolen goods, and on suspicion of burglary.

The detective said they are trying to determine if the pair could be connected to similar breaking and enterings in the area over the past few days.

Anyone with information on these burglaries is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Department through Silent Observer at 1-877-88-SILENT or online at www.mosotips.com.
