SOUTH ROCKWOOD, Mich. — Authorities have identified a suspect in a burglary at a home along Monroe County’s U.S. Turnpike Road in Berlin Township Wednesday morning.

Sgt. Troy Goodnough of the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said a security alarm at the home alerted Monroe County Central Dispatch at 11:13 a.m. of the break-in. Sergeant Goodnough said the homeowner, who was away from his residence, called to report that a man — identified by police as Michael Kelly Sutherland, 32, of Westland, Mich. — was seen running from his home.

Authorities said another call reported that someone shot the tires of the burglary suspect’s vehicle.

The suspect then ran westbound from the area of Labo Road and the U.S. Turnpike.

Chief Larry Chambers of the South Rockwood Police Department arrived at the home and assisted sheriff’s deputies. The U.S. Border Patrol established a perimeter while Deputy Jeremy Peters and his police dog began a search. State Trooper Brad Martin also responded with his dog and found the suspect’s shirt in a ditch between Haggerman and Chinavare Roads.

The burglary suspect was not found.
