NORTON SHORES, Mich. (WZZM)-Norton Shores police believe a 14-year-old boy is responsible for at least seven break-ins over the past two weeks.

Around 3 a.m. Wednesday, Muskegon Police stopped the boy, who was driving a car stolen from a home in the 5500 block of Henry Street in Norton Shores. Officers contacted the vehicle's owner, who didn't know the vehicle was missing from his garage. He told officers his other vehicle had also been entered.

After interviewing the teenager and his parents, police connected the boy to several crimes, including two break-ins at the GVSU radio station, where windows were smashed, electrical wires and tools were stolen and gasoline was poured around the building.

Police believe the boy also broke into the Oakridge Golf Club, stole golfing equipment and other items, tampered with computers, and damaged windows and doors. Officers believe the suspect also broke into two locked garages, stealing pop, money, cigarettes and alcohol.

Detectives are still trying to determine if the teenager is connected to other crimes in the area, including bicycle thefts. Officers have already determined the boy is not responsible for several home invasions on the city's north end.

Anyone with information about any of these crimes is asked to call Norton Shores Police or Silent Observer.
