Nickolaus Bristol, Timothy Childers, and Ronald Gene Hawley each face various charges including Larceny of $20,000 or more, Breaking and Entering of a vehicle to steal $20,000 or more, and Conducting a Criminal Enterprise.
Flint Township Police officers responded to a business on the morning of Monday, December 11th. Investigators say several suspects had broken in over the weekend and stolen a work truck, trailers, and around $200,000 in work tools. Officials say multiple search warrants led to the arrests, and additional evidence linked them to other crimes, including the theft of 5 vehicles, including 3 classic cars, from a homeowner in Frankenmuth.
According to police, multiple stolen vehicles and many of the tools were discovered hidden around Genesee County and have been returned to their rightful owners.
