MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - A Marquette man was arrested Friday on several charges following an incident involving stolen property.

According to the Marquette Police Department (MPD), at about 6:45 a.m. Sept. 10, officers were sent to Rippling River Campground for a report of a man attempting to steal bicycles from campers.

When officers arrived, they saw a suspicious vehicle as well. When officers tried to contact the driver (Linville), he sped off. Officers pursued Linville, before he crashed into an embankment and then ran away on foot.

Investigation showed that Linville had stolen the vehicle, bicycles and other items from the campground and visitors.

A Michigan State Police K-9 Unit was brought in to help with the search.

At about 1:00 p.m. Friday, Linville was located near the campground, based on witness reports.

The investigation is ongoing, and additional charges may be sent to the Marquette County Prosecutor’s Office for review.
