B / E Arrests In Ottawa County

Another arrest in Ottawa County.

Ottawa County Sheriff's Department says 18-year-old Malachi Sosa was charged with an Aug. 16 break-in at Pro-Tax Business in Holland Township.

There has been a string of more than two dozen business break-ins in Ottawa County. Earlier this week, Derek Kraai, 18, and a 19-year-old Damien Sosa were taken into custody after police say they broke into a Hungry Howie's in Allendale Township.

The Ottawa County Sheriff's Department said then that the pair was likely connected to other break-ins and that more arrests were coming.

WOOD TV reports there have been between 30 and 40 business break-ins since May. In many cases, the burglars broke out a front window or door and then stole cash registers or safes.

Investigators say the group burglarized businesses in Allendale, Blendon, Grand Haven, Holland, Park and Zeeland townships, as well as the city of Hudsonville.
