ESCANABA - Three Delta County residents remain lodged in jail after being arrested in connection with a recent break-in at an Escanaba Township home, according to Delta County Sheriff's Department.
Police suspect the trio were allegedly involved in several area breaking and enterings throughout the county during recent weeks. Search warrants have been executed at various locations in connection with the break-ins, said Sheriff Gary Ballweg.
Two males and a female were arraigned in Delta County District Court Wednesday morning. The three suspects are Ashley Marie Munroe, 21, of 4397 18th Road, Escanaba, Daniel Robert Derouin, 19, and Joseph Jonathan Kossow, 20, both of 4447 26th Road in Gladstone.
Each was charged with one count of second-degree home invasion, a 15-year felony, and three counts of receiving and concealing firearms, each a 10-year felony. The charges relate to an Escanaba Township home being broken into on Tuesday. Items stolen from the residence, including two long guns and a pistol, were recovered by the sheriff's department.
Several break-ins being investigated by area police agencies are suspected to be related to the three suspects, said Ballweg. During the past few weeks, break-ins have been reported at locations in Brampton, Soo Hill, and other areas of Delta County.
Munroe, Derouin and Kossow remain lodged in the county jail, each in lieu of a $15,000 bond. They are scheduled to appear for a preliminary examination in district court on June 21.
