Police Find Pot in 200-Pound Stolen Safe

By Associated Press

ESCANABA, Mich. - A man who reported a safe stolen from his home a month ago may now face charges after police found the safe _ with almost a pound of marijuana inside.

The Bark River man told Delta County sheriff's deputies last month that someone broke into his home Aug. 9 and took the 200-pound safe, which contained a rifle, muzzleloader, two knives, a rangefinder and a collection of silver dollars.

Deputies recovered the safe early Wednesday after receiving a tip, Detective Lt. Mike Gierke told the Daily Press of Escanaba. The safe was still locked, and when deputies called the owner to open it, they discovered the items he described, along with the marijuana and $500 cash.

"It was obvious the alleged victim did not think we were going to be tenacious enough to recover the safe," Gierke said.

The tip led to the arrest of Joseph Henderson, 21, Gladstone, whom deputies believe stole the safe. He was arraigned Wednesday in Delta County District Court on a count of home invasion.

Charges have not yet been sought against the Bark River man, but his arrest is pending, Gierke said.
