Three Arrested In Capac Grocery Store Break-In

Three suspects broke into a Capac grocery store Sunday night and were captured later that night in Oakland County.  According to St. Clair County Sheriff Tim Donnellon, deputies from the Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to Fronney’s Foods on Capac Road at about 10:00 p.m. on a breaking and entering alarm call.  When they arrived, it was determined a break-in had occurred at the store.  Investigation into the incident indicated the suspects used a pry bar to gain entry.  They then went to the pharmacy area of the store in an attempt to steal medications.  However, the pharmacy has not been open for some time, so they left empty-handed.  A review of the store’s video surveillance system was able to give deputies a description of the suspect vehicle as well as a license plate.  Deputies put out and area Be on the Lookout (BOL) broadcast.  About an hour and a half later, St. Clair County Central Dispatch relayed a message to deputies that the suspects had been pulled over by the Wixom and Walled Lake Police Departments in Oakland County and that the suspects had been taken into custody.  Detectives from the Sheriff’s Office went to the Wixom Police Department and took custody the three suspects, who are all men from Novi, ages 26, 25 and 23.  They were transported to the St. Clair County Intervention and Detention Center, where they are currently lodged.  The trio is expected to face charges including breaking and entering of a building with forced entry and malicious destruction of property.  They are scheduled to be arraigned on the charges Wednesday in Port Huron’s 72nd District Court.  Troopers from the Michigan State Police also assisted in the investigation.
