It didn’t take long for police to make an arrest after someone broke into a shooting range in May and made off with five semiautomatic handguns.
Break-ins that involve stolen handguns tend to get a lot of police attention, and this one was no exception.
Since the cases were selected at random and would not normally become the subject of news feature stories, we are not identifying the suspects or witnesses by name.
This is no ordinary gated community. And it is not the typical setting for an armed standoff with police.
It appeared at first to be a crime that made no sense at all. A man was attacked on the side of a rural road in East Bay Township southeast of Traverse City Aug. 12, stabbed over 20 times and left to stagger to a nearby house to call for help.
