ROSCOMMON – On April 20, 2020 deputies from the Roscommon County Sheriff’s Office handled a report from the Roscommon DNR Region Office that numerous license plates had been stolen off Department of Natural Resources Vehicles. A joint investigation was then started which would eventually include the Sheriff’s Office, DNR Law Enforcement Division, the Ogemaw County Sheriff’s Office, the West Branch City Police Department, and the Richfield Department of Public Safety.
Throughout the investigation it was discovered that the registration plates had been stolen the day prior and that the Roscommon County Sheriff’s Office also had a county registration plate stolen off a sheriff’s office transport van on that same date. Investigators developed a suspect when the stolen registration plates were located for sale online.
The suspect was identified as a 49-year old-male from Ogemaw County. A search warrant was obtained for the suspect’s residence where officers located many of the stolen license plates along with an additional stolen license plate from a Houghton Lake Business that had not yet been reported.
Officers are investigating other items located in the home and reports will be presented to the Roscommon County Prosecutor’s Office for review and appropriate charges.
