Press Release

DATE:       January 19, 2024
FROM:       Chief Marc VanderStelt
On December 5, 2023, at 4:24 PM, Norton Shores Police was called to the Mona Shores Middle School in reference to a suspicious subject seen on campus.  It was quickly determined that an adult male subject had entered the school illegally after hours and went into the 7/8th grade women’s locker room for 4 minutes and then went into the 6th-grade women’s locker room but was seen going into this locker room by a student in the hallway which made the subject run out of the building. 
The locker rooms were immediately closed down to access to students.  Norton Shores Police searched the locker rooms; however, they were not able to locate anything suspicious in the locker rooms.  The Michigan State Police technical unit and canine unit were contacted for assistance as it was unsure if any electronic devices may be hidden in the locker rooms.  Michigan State Police conducted a complete sweep of both locker rooms, and they did not locate any electronic devices inside the locker rooms.  Since the locker rooms were deemed safe, the school then opened them back up for students to use.
The video from the school was able to capture clear pictures of the suspect, and he was quickly identified and arrested on a bond violation and parole detainer.  He has remained in jail since his arrest on those violations.
Several electronic devices were located on the subject and inside his residence.  These electronic devices were forensically searched and did not contain any images of Mona Shores staff or students.  All social media accounts belonging to the suspect were also searched and did not contain images of Mona Shores staff or students.
After the lengthy investigation of the suspect's devices and social media accounts, the Muskegon County Prosecutors Office issued charges on January 18, 2024, for Breaking and Entering a Building with intent, a 10-year felony. 
The suspect is identified as 23-year-old Jarrid Percy-Lahaie of Roosevelt Park.  He is still currently in jail on all charges.  He had been previously convicted in Ottawa County for capturing/distributing images of an unclothed person and Home Invasion 2nd degree in Muskegon County.
