A homeowner in Fruitport told police he watched as a man tried to break into the house yesterday around 10:45 a.m. Monday.

Fruitport police ended chasing the suspect on foot for some distance, but it was police from Norton Shores who found this guy as he was running along the US-31 highway.

Police say the man dropped a bag with apparent loot from other burglaries while he was being chased.

Detectives are trying to match that stuff with thins missing from recent larcenies.
