Man alleged to have stolen guns, fled police bound over to circuit court

STANDISH — A 26-year-old Standish resident alleged to have stolen three guns from a home in Deep River Township and fled from police on foot is scheduled for arraignment in 23rd Circuit Court Oct. 23.

Michael Mier was reportedly caught breaking into a house on Ousterhout Drive by residents of the home around 6:45 p.m. Sept. 26. A resident of the home and a neighbor reportedly chased Mier on foot into the woods.

According to Arenac County Undersheriff Don McIntyre, a police K-9 unit chased Mier through the woods to the Rifle River. He said Mier crossed the river and was approaching Melita Road when Arenac County deputies found and arrested him.

Mier has been charged with first-degree home invasion, which carries a maximum penalty of up to 20 years in prison and/or $5,000 and possession of a firearm by a felon, which is punishable by up to five years in prison and/or $5,000.

Mier is currently being lodged in the Arenac County Jail. The guns that were allegedly stolen were recovered along the wood line near the scene of the incident.
