Looking for clues

Meanwhile, there was another attempted break-in at one of the businesses hit in early August.

The owner of the Village Baker, 617 E. Savidge St., said she found a damaged door when she arrived at the shop Tuesday morning.

“I could immediately see that there was something different to the door,” Sara Rathbun said.

Rathbun said it appeared someone had tried to kick in the door, but she believes the construction going on there kept them from getting into the shop.

The layers of construction at the shop had previously thwarted vandals on Aug. 8. The crooks used a crowbar to try to gain entry to the bakery and several other village businesses, Rathbun said.

Break-ins were reported that same day at Eye Vision, 110 S. Lake St.; and Spring Lake Printing/Reyers Co., 700 E. Savidge St., said Detective Corey Allard of the Spring Lake/Ferrysburg Police Department.

Attempted break-ins were reported at Ship and Shop, 723 E. Savidge; and at the Village Baker.

Police have followed some leads, but are still looking for help to solve the crimes, Allard said. Anyone with information is asked to call Silent Observer at 1-877-88-SILENT, or leave a tip online at mosotips.com.
