Roscommon County Sheriff's Office News

We are relieved to bring this serious incident to a close. A female subject recently reported that several subjects in multiple vehicles attempted to kidnap her at a local business in Houghton Lake. This report caused great concern over social media. Through multiple avenues, Investigators determined that the allegations were not truthful and were completely fabricated. This female subject has been arrested on charges of filing a false police report that were issued by the Roscommon County Prosecutor’s Office this week. We would like to assure the public that our communities remain secure and that we have no concern for the safety of our citizens stemming from these original allegations.

Please private message if you can identify the female in these photos.

****METH FOUND ON 16 YEAR OLD BREAKING AND ENTERING SUSPECT**** On the morning of September 2nd 2018 Deputies from the Roscommon County Sheriff’s Office were investigating an attempted break in at the local BP Gas Station in the Village of Roscommon. When Deputies arrived, they found that someone had attempted to break into the building. The person/persons involved never made it inside. As the investigation unraveled Deputies identified the suspect to be a 16-year-old juvenile male. While interviewing the suspected offender, Deputies located a small paper packet that contained a white powdery substance that is suspected to be crystal methamphetamine. This information is being released as a reminder of the affects that narcotics are having on our community. This issue spans further than just the adult population and is now affecting our youth. We encourage parents to have open conversations with their children about substance abuse and how it can impact their life. If you have any information about any drug activity we encourage you to contact the Sheriff’s Office, and you can remain anonymous. As drug addiction continues to increase in our area and throughout the state, we continue to fight against this epidemic through enforcement, treatment, and education. Along with programs in our community such as the Lion’s Den addictions treatment center in Roscommon and the Michigan State Police Angel Program, many other programs exist if you or someone you know needs help overcoming addiction. Attached is a list of programs provided in our area.

****IDENTIFIED**** Our counterfeit suspects posted yesterday have been identified. Thank you again for your assistance.

***FELONY FRIDAY*** Please help us ID this suspect from another police agency. He walks with a limp. The suspect allegedly victimized an elderly woman. While all people are presumed innocent until proven guilty, please help further this investigation by identifying this subject.
