Six people were arrested for a burglary ring out of Isabella County.

The joint investigation between the State Police Mt. Pleasant post and the Isabella County Sheriff's Office started in late 2013 when they noticed a series of break-ins in northwest Isabella County.

The State Police say the break-ins had a lot of similarities. The suspects stole firearms, televisions, electronics and ATVs.

After a joint investigation, six men were identified and arrested.

Fredrick Qualls, Jeremy Qualls, Scott Fedewa, Warren Neighorn, Lonnell Smith and William Larue were all arrested and charged with multiple counts of home invasion, breaking and entering, larceny and conspiracy.

The State Police report Larue is a parole absconder from the Michigan Department of Corrections.
