Honor woman admits to car larcenies
A 27-year-old Honor woman has pleaded guilty in a plea agreement to attempted larceny from a motor vehicle.
Mackenzie W. Blodgett, 11141 Honor Hwy. admitted to police on July 13 that she had broken into a vehicle in the North Bar Lake parking lot, as well as several other cars in the National Park, according to Leelanau County court records.
On July 10, a Leelanau County sheriff’s deputy was sent to Empire Township to investigate a breaking and entering of a motor vehicle in which the front passenger window was broken and a purse stolen.
In exchange for Blodgett’s guilty plea, a charge of larceny from a motor vehicle was dismissed. Sentencing is set for Sept. 4.
Three days later police were called back to North Bar Lake where Blodgett and another woman, Shanda R. Hendershott, had admitted to the vehicle larcenies to National Park Service officers, according to court documents.
Hendershot, 24, of 11141 Honor Hwy. Honor, is also facing charges of larceny from a vehicle. She is currently free on a $5,000 personal recognizance bond and awaiting a pretrial conference.
