Barry County Sheriff’s deputies continue to investigate a suspicious situation from Dec. 29 in Carlton Township.
Sheriff Dar Leaf said it was reported that three white men, thought to be in their 20’s, came to rear of a residence on Farrel Road off M-43 and entered the back area through a slider.
Leaf said it was a suspicious situation; the suspects may have attempted entry. One of the men wore a safety vest with Wolverine on his shirt; deputies checked with officials from Wolverine Water Company who said their employees do not wear safety vests and none were in that area. Also the white Dodge the men were in didn’t match the description of their vehicles.
As a precaution, Leaf put an alert on the department’s Facebook page, reminding residents to keep their doors and windows locked and be aware of any suspicious vehicles.
If they see such a vehicle, they should call 911 and try to get a number or photo of the license plate with their cell phones, but only if is safe for them to do so, he said.
