GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- An investigation into a possible housing violation on the northwest side of Grand Rapids Thursday afternoon led to a noticeable police presence in that area.
The Grand Rapids Police Department says officers were investigating the housing violation complaint in the 900 block of Garfield, south of Walker, around 3:45 p.m. They found car parts and a stolen vehicle on the property, so they called in the combined auto theft team. That team got a search warrant for the home.
Officers say that when they tried speaking with the 38-year-old man who lives there, he tried to flee before running back inside and refusing to come out.
GRPD says it apprehended the man by about 7 p.m.
