DUNDEE TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Police are searching for a man accused of stealing snowmobiles and trailers from a Monroe County storage facility during a “series of crimes” over the past month.

Officials said the man was pulled over around 6:30 a.m. Sunday (Aug. 28) while driving a charcoal gray Dodge Ram 2500 in the area of M-50 and U.S. 23. The truck had an invalid Michigan dealer plate on the back bumper, according to authorities.
