Home invasion suspects arrested with gun and drugs
On Thursday, November 4, 2021, at approximately 8:36 P.M, Kalamazoo Public Safety Officers were on a directed patrol in the 1400 block of Oak St due to an increase of larcenies and stolen vehicles in the neighborhood by juveniles. During that time, a Kalamazoo Public Safety Sergeant observed two juveniles walk up to what appeared to be an unoccupied home. The juveniles began to attempt to break into the home but were quickly scared off by a resident who was home.
Kalamazoo Public Safety Officers had surrounded the home to take the suspects into custody during their attempt to break into that home. When the suspects attempted to flee on foot, officers arrested both suspects in the yard of that home.
The suspects have been identified as a 12-year-old Kalamazoo resident and a 14-year-old Kalamazoo resident. A stolen handgun, illegal drugs, and a large amount of cash were recovered from the suspects. Both suspects were lodged at Kalamazoo County Juvenile Home on various felony charges.
Anyone having information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety at (269) 488-8911 or Silent Observer at 343-2100
