Home invasion suspects arrested

MARQUETTE – The Marquette Police Department has arrested four suspects and is seeking charges on a juvenile in connection with a home invasion that took place in the early morning hours of July 19 on Harrison Street in Marquette.

Four suspects entered the home wearing panty hose over their faces and held the resident at gunpoint. The resident was then bound and assaulted. Suspects stole a large quantity of medical marijuana, guitars, and a gun from the residence.

Several hours later, the Menominee Police Department attempted to stop the suspect vehicle for a traffic violation, and a pursuit followed. All five suspects were taken into custody by the Menominee Police Department, and all items stolen from the residence were recovered.

Richard Michael Arrington, 18, and Devin Landrum, 20, both of Green Bay, Wis., were arraigned Tuesday at Marquette District Court and face their preliminary examinations on Aug. 12 at 1:30 p.m.

Steven Thomas Helwig, 29, of River Grove, Ill., is scheduled for a preliminary examination on Aug. 18 at 2 p.m. Another suspect has still not been arraigned, and a juvenile was also petitioned in regards to the investigation.

All suspects face one count of first degree home invasion, a felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison and/or a $5,000 fine.

The resident was not injured during the incident, and the investigation is ongoing. The Menominee Police Department is assisting in the investigation.
