Ontonagon airport reports theft

ONTONAGON -- Homeland Security items were stolen from the Ontonagon County Airport office Wednesday or Thursday.

The Ontonagon County Sheriff's Department is investigating the break-in, which occurred between 8 p.m. on Wednesday and 7 a.m. Thursday, according to sheriff John Gravier.

Gravier said sheriff's deputies received a 7:13 a.m. Thursday call from Bill Johnson, county emergency services coordinator, reporting the burglary at the airport office.

"Upon investigation, it was learned that Homeland Security items were stolen," the sheriff said. Investigating officers are not revealing details of what was stolen, but said the items are valued in excess of $2,500.

Anyone with information concerning the break-in should call either the sheriff's department at 884-4901 or the local police department.

Gravier said an evidence technician from the Michigan State Police post in Wakefield has been assisting his department in the investigation.
