GRAND HAVEN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- Ottawa County Sheriff's Deputies have arrested a 23-year-old man in connection with a number of vehicle break-ins.

The larcenies occurred in mid April in the Forest Park subdivision in Grand Haven Township. Authorities say multiple items were stolen, including a Glock handgun.

After investigating for several weeks, the West Michigan Enforcement Team (WMET) obtained a search warrant for a home in the 12000 block of 168th Avenue, also in Grand Haven Township. There, they recovered the stolen handgun.

Deputies say it appears the 23-year-old suspect attempted to alter the identification numbers on the handgun. He will be charged with a number of crimes.

Authorities say others may have also been involved in the vehicle larcenies and more arrests are possible as the investigation continues.
