Hit-and-run crash investigation leads to other charges

Two people have been arrested in southwestern Michigan on unrelated charges after authorities located a man accused of fleeing the scene of a hit-and-run accident.

Cass County Sheriff Joseph Underwood Jr. says officers executed a search warrant Friday afternoon in Newburg Township after connecting the homeowner to a truck driven in the hit-and-run accident. Officers found two stolen vehicles, marijuana and methamphetamine at the home.

A 49-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman were arrested and booked into the Cass County Jail in Cassopolis. Two children who were at the home during the arrests were taken into protective custody.
