ESCANABA - A 46-year-old man was arraigned this week on 21 felony counts relating to several break-ins at homes and camps in Delta County last year.

Phillip James Lanaville, currently an inmate at Dickinson County Jail, was arrested at the jail on the 21 felonies. He was officially charged in Delta County District Court on Wednesday.

Lanaville is accused of breaking into homes in Brampton Township and Wells Township from April through December 2012. He is also accused of breaking into camps in Rock during the same time period.

Several firearms, money, jewelry, and a vehicle were stolen during the 10 incidents, according to Michigan State Police from the Gladstone Post and the Delta County Sheriff's Department which issued the 21 complaints following a year-long joint investigation with Gladstone Public Safety.

Troopers investigated the following four incidents relating to Lanaville's recent arrest:

- Lanaville is charged with allegedly breaking into a shop on 27.5 Road in Brampton on May 6, 2012. Breaking and entering a building with intent is a 10-year felony.

- The suspect allegedly committed the crime of second-degree home invasion, a 15-year felony, on Sept. 17, 2012, at a home on 26.5 Lane in Brampton. He is also accused of two counts of receiving or concealing stolen firearms, each a 10-year felony, and one count of possession of a firearm while committing a felony, a two-year felony.

- Lanaville is charged with allegedly breaking and entering a building with intent at a home on 26.5 Lane in Brampton during September 2012.

- Troopers arrested Lanaville on one count of breaking and entering a building with intent at a camp on M-35 in Rock sometime during May 2012. He is also charged with three counts of receiving or concealing stolen firearms in connection with the camp break-in.

The Delta County Sheriff Department investigated six incidents at homes in Brampton Township and Wells Township and camps in Rock last year in connection with Lanaville's arrest.

- Lanaville is accused of breaking and entering a building with intent at a vacant home on 26.5 Lane in Brampton in early May 2012. He is also charged with larceny of a firearm, a five-year felony.

- In mid-July 2012, Lanaville allegedly broke into a home on 18th Road in Wells Township and has been charged with second-degree home invasion.

- Also in July 2012, he allegedly broke into a home on M Road in Wells Township and has been charged with first-degree home invasion, a 20-year felony, and possession of a firearm while committing a felony.

- Lanaville is accused of breaking into a camp on M-35 in Rock sometime during July and August 2012 and has been charged with one count of breaking and entering a building with intent and one count of larceny of a firearm.

- In a separate incident at another camp on M-35 in Rock, sometime during July and August 2012, Lanaville has been charged with breaking and entering a building with intent.

- The suspect allegedly entered a home on M Road in Wells Township for the second time during November 2012, according to the sheriff's department. He is charged with first-degree home invasion and possession of a firearm while committing a felony.

Lanaville is accused of stealing a 2004 Ford Explorer from this residence during the same incident in November 2012. Unlawfully driving away an auto is a five-year felony.

Lanaville's cash bond is set at $10,000 on each of the Michigan State Police cases and $25,000 on all of the sheriff's department charges.

He is scheduled for a preliminary examination in Delta County District Court on Dec. 20.

Lanaville, whose five court files in Delta County list him as either a Gwinn resident or an Escanaba resident, remains lodged in the Dickinson County Jail on unrelated breaking and entering charges in that county.

He has been in Dickinson County Jail since August when he was arrested at a Gwinn residence by the Michigan State Police Fugitive Team.
