BLOOMINGDALE TOWNSHIP (WKZO) -- The Van Buren County Sheriffs Department is investigating three home invasions that were reported northwest of Gobles this week.
The sheriffs department says that the first one was reported Wednesday when someone saw a dark SUV pull into a driveway in the 52 thousand block of 24th Avenue in Columbia Township. The witness saw a suspect get out and knock at the door, and when no one answered, the vehicle circled around and two suspects got out, put on masks, and then forced their way in through the back door. The elderly resident confronted the suspects, and they fled. Then, the same day, two break ins were reported in the 36 thousand block of Sixth Avenue in Bloomingdale Township.
In both cases, the victims found their homes had been ransacked. Stolen were some televisions and guns. Police have no description of the suspects, and anyone with information is asked to call the Van Buren County Sheriffs Department.
