BERLIN TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Officials said two former students from Armada Area Schools were taken into custody Sunday after four guns were stolen from a home in Berlin Township.

Deputies from the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office were called Sunday (March 19) to a breaking and entering at a home in Berlin Township. They said four guns had been stolen.

After authorities investigated, two former Armada Area Schools students were taken into custody, and two of the four guns were recovered, according to police.

St. Clair County deputies said no threats were made toward the school, students, or staff members.

Armada Area Schools were closed Monday out of an abundance of caution.

Late Monday evening, Superintendent Michael Musary announced classes would resume Tuesday, March 21.

Musary wrote to students’ families, informing them that the third person of interest had been taken into custody and that all of the stolen guns had been recovered.

“I want to thank the St. Clair Sheriff’s Department for their outstanding investigative work,” Musary said. “If you have any questions, ideas, or concerns, my door is open.”
