SUBJECT OF RELEASE:  Illegal Entry Arrest
DATE AND TIME: Approximately 7:57 P.M. on Friday, March 8, 2024
LOCATION:  15000 block of West Howard City-Edmore Road, Winfield Township
Deputies were sent to a report of an illegal entry into a home in the 15000 block of West Howard City-Edmore Road in Winfield Township at approximately 7:57 P.M. on Friday, March 8, 2024.  The investigation led to the arrest of a 33-year-old man from Edmore.
The initial call was from a Greenville man reporting he and the Edmore man were travelling on Howard City-Edmore Road when they noticed they were almost out of gasoline.  The two stopped at a home to ask for assistance.  The Edmore man went to the home but instead of knocking and asking for help, the man entered the home.  After a short period of time of not returning to the car, the Greenville man called 911.
The deputies arrived and spotted the Edmore man in the home through a window.  The deputies learned the homeowners were away and gave loud commands to the Edmore man to exit the home, but the commands went ignored.  The deputies entered the home and during the search for the suspect, found that he had locked himself in a bedroom.  The door was forced open, and the Edmore man was taken into custody.  The prosecutor’s office authorized charges for Illegal Entry and Resisting and Obstructing a Police Officer.  The Edmore man is currently in custody awaiting arraignment.
Howard City-Edmore Road was shut down for approximately one and one-half hours during the investigation.
The Sheriff’s Office was assisted by Montcalm County Central Dispatch, the Michigan State Police, the Newaygo County Sheriff’s Office, Montcalm County Emergency Medical Services, and the Lakeview Fire District Department.
