The suspect was caught and was in possession of brass fittings and piping supplies valued at approximately $300 and in possession of Xanax, drug paraphernalia and several needles.

The man, whose name had not been released at press time, was lodged at the Isabella County Jail and scheduled for arraignment Thursday afternoon.
