Two arrested after break-in at Holland apartments

Police arrested a man and a teenage male Tuesday at a Holland apartment complex. Shortly before 8 a.m. Tuesday, a resident in the MeadowLane Townhouse complex told police he saw two individuals carrying items out of a neighbor's residence. The resident said he yelled at the suspects, who then took off running. A maintenance man in the complex said the suspects, who were wearing masks, ran through the complex. The maintenance man gave chase, police said, but the suspects attempted to elude him.

The suspects ran into a townhouse in the complex just before police arrived. Holland Police officers set up a perimeter around the suspect residence and called the suspects out. The suspects complied and were taken into custody.

A search of the residence yielded what is believed to be stolen items from several recent break-ins in the area, police said.

The suspects, both of Holland, were arrested and lodged in connection with the incident. The adult is charged with one count of breaking and entering, and a probation violation. The juvenile was lodged at the Allegan County Youth Home for one count of breaking and entering, and one count of home invasion.

Police said detectives are continuing to investigate the case and may be seeking additional charges in the future.
