Facebook post could be linked to Leelanau County home invasion


BINGHAM TWP. -- Leelanau County Sheriff's deputies are
investigating a crime that could be linked to a recent post about a
homeowner taking a trip downstate.

The crime
targeting the Bingham Township home was reported at 10:20 p.m.
Saturday.   The homeowners called 911 after they returned from a trip
and realized some items were missing.

Deputies
found footprints in the snow which led to a nearby cul-de-sac where it
appears the thief or thieves left in a vehicle. There was no forced
entry and an iPad and iPod were stolen.

Investigators
believe that a Facebook post stating that the residents were going to a
college basketball game Saturday afternoon may have been an invitation
to the suspect that the house would be unoccupied.

The
Sheriff is reminding people not to post information about when their
house will be empty which could attract thieves. By posting vacation
photos or other information about current or future travel plans, you
provide a window of opportunity that criminals need to commit a home
invasion.

Anyone with information regarding
the home invasion in Bingham Township Saturday is asked to contact the
Leelanau County Sheriff's Office at 
tips@co.Leelanau.mi.us or the confidential tip line at 231-256-8696.
