Man arraigned for larceny, firing gun in Raisin Township
MONROE — On Saturday, Nov. 9, Kyle Alan Harrison, 27, was arraigned in Lenawee County District Court following an incident in Raisin Township late Friday night, Nov. 8. The suspect faces charges for: larceny in a building, larceny of a firearm, felony firearms and carrying a firearm with unlawful intent.
Troopers from the Monroe Post of the Michigan State Police were dispatched to a Gady Road address on a report of larceny of firearms from a residence, according to a press release supplied by the post. The suspect was the victim’s son, who had been spotted walking in the woods near the roadway carrying two long guns.
Troopers from the Monroe Post arrived and began a search for the subject carrying the firearms. Deputies from the Lenawee County Sheriff’s Office responded to assist with their K9 unit. As officers were getting ready to begin a track through the wooded area near the mobile home park, three shots were heard coming from the wooded area. Officers on scene established a perimeter around the wooded area and requested the response of additional units.
The release noted that a subject soon emerged from the woods and was identified as the person who had stolen the firearms. He was taken into custody without incident. Upon questioning, Harrison indicated that he had left the firearms in the woods. When asked about the gunshots, he stated he’d shot at someone riding an ATV.
Promedica provided its helicopter to use for a search in the wooded area. After the aerial search turned up no evidence of an ATV or any other persons in the woods, officers conducted a ground search of the area and confirmed that there were no injured persons in the area.
Troopers on the scene then shifted the focus of their search on locating the two missing firearms that had been left in the woods. An exhaustive search was conducted but the firearms were not located. Eventually, a specially trained MSP K9 unit responded to the area and was able to locate both of the firearms, which were then seized.
Harrison was lodged at the Lenawee County Jail and on Saturday morning, a warrant was issued for his arrest.
Troopers were also assisted by Conservation officers from the Department of Natural Resources and officers from the Tecumseh Police Department.
