The Kent County Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate a Sept. 2 breaking and entering where several suspects broke into and stole multiple hand guns from Repocast, 601 Gordon Industrial Court SW in Byron Township.
Detectives identified two juvenile suspects who had escaped from a juvenile detention facility in Osceola County. A search warrant executed on a residence in the 900 block of Kalamazoo Avenue SE resulted in a 16-year-old suspect being taken into custody there.
Another 16-year-old and a 23-year-old man were taken into custody on firearms related charges with a second search warrant on Grand Rapids southeast side Thursday. The second 15-year-old escapee from the detention center is still at large and is believed to be in the Grand Rapids area.
A small number of the guns have been recovered.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact the sheriff’s office or Silent Observer.
