Bennett said the incidents occurred between 8-10 a.m., and Bouse would allegedly take electronics, jewelry, food and other personal property. More than $20,000 in items was stolen.

The incidents occurred while Bouse was out on bond for pending home invasion charges for incidents occurring in eastern Ottawa County in July, Bennett said.

According to Bennett, detectives were led to Bouse as he was selling stolen items to area merchants. He was arrested on Monday near one of the merchants where he allegedly tried to sell some of the stolen items, police said.

Bouse is being held in the Ottawa County Jail, with a $20,000 bond on the new home invasion charge.
