B&E suspect arraigned Tuesday


MARQUETTE — The 23-year-old Marquette man arrested earlier this month on charges related to a rash of larcenies and vehicle break-ins in south Marquette was arraigned in the Marquette County 96th District Court Tuesday.

Allan Lee Blondeau of Marquette was arraigned on four charges — one count of breaking and entering a vehicle to steal property $200 or more but less than $1,000, and three counts of breaking and entering a vehicle to steal property less than $200.

According to a press release from the Marquette Police Department, officers started investigating multiple break and enter complaints on April 8, leading to the suspect being identified.

Among the stolen property was cash and portable electronic devices.

Blondeau pled not guilty on all counts, and was scheduled for pre-trial hearing at 9:20 a.m. on May 5.

All four charges are misdemeanors and a total bond was set at $8,000 cash/surety, according to the release.

The MPD noted in an earlier press release that citizens should lock their car doors and not leave valuable items within their vehicles when unattended.

The MPD has also received complaints of bicycles being stolen from homes and garages. Items of value should not be left unattended or unsecured at any location including the home.
