A Manistique man is arrested for a long string of Schoolcraft County break–ins that have happened in the last few months.

City Public Safety, and State Police from the Manistique Post, say it’s 25–year–old Brian Lee Smith.

Smith is facing 14 felony counts, coming from 11 burglaries at 9 different locations.

Those places include the Stony Point golf course, the Manistique Big Boy restaurant, and a private home in Manistique Township.

Smith is also charged with being a habitual offender, fourth offense.

He waived his right to a preliminary exam at his District Court arraignment this morning.

His next appearance is a Circuit Court arraignment on December 9th.

Smith is in the Schoolcraft County Jail on $50,000 bond.
