A suspect arrested for a Grass Lake Township home burglary may be linked to several other crimes.

The 28-year-old Summit Township man was arrested Wednesday following the theft of a safe from a house in the 4200 block of Burtch Road.

Neighbors spotted the suspect Tuesday leaving the house and gave sheriff's deputies a description of him and the car he was driving.

Deputies matched the suspect and car to several retail frauds committed over several days prior to the burglary.

Their investigation led to a house in the 400 block of East Golf in Summit Township

The suspect is in the Jackson County jail awaiting arraignment on burglary charges. The investigation into retail fraud charges is continuing.
