      Nicholas Perkins was arrested for 2nd degree home invasion.

      A 23-year-old Kalkaska man was arrested for breaking into a Kasson Township home in February.

      According to the Leelanau County Sheriff's Office, Nicholas Perkins was arrested for 2nd degree home invasion.

      Deputies say he broke into the home and stole a safe with $1,200 inside.

      The Sheriff says Perkins worked with 22,-year-old Taylor Yaster, from Traverse City, to break into the home.
