Berrien County man could face life in prison for 'safe breaking'

BERRIEN CO., Mich. -- A man could spend the rest of his life behind bars for charges from two Berrien County break-ins.

Police said Ronald Crafton of Benton Twp. stole an ATM machine from a bar earlier in August.

Eleven days later, police connected him to a stolen dump truck.

The 47-year-old faces a maximum life sentence for safe breaking.

He also faces breaking and entering, fleeing, and resisting arrest on top of many other charges.

Bond was set for $100,000.
