The Eggleston Township man, a coin dealer, was connected to recent home invasions during an investigation.

Police said two suspects were arrested for a string of cases involving home invasions and thefts from cars. During the investigation, some of the stolen property was traced to the Norton Shores coin dealer.

Police conducted a brief undercover operation, then sought charges against the dealer.

“A dealer or an agent or employee of a dealer shall not knowingly receive or purchase a precious item from a person unless that person presents a valid driver's license or a valid state of Michigan personal identification card,” police said.

The felony charge is punishable by imprisonment for not more than two years, or a fine of $5,000, or both.

Trib wouldn't want to print this guy's name or ADDRESS, because he is not growing medical marijuana I guess.

Another potheaded comment by a supporter (43 North) of immoral and illegal use of mind altering drugs! Any real human with a backbone or a brain wouldn't need the false la la land of having their feeble minds warped and bent into submission and then baked to stay like a pretzel. Maybe real people should pour lots of salt on these illegal drug dependent conscripts like is done to the pretzels.

..and just how many prescription drugs are you taking to come up with that rant full of jibberish and misinformation. Just keep taking that chantix and see what happens to your obviously already salted brain. Somebody give that girl a sedative before she melts down!
