2 faced with more counts

Multiple felonies added in relation to break-ins, drugs

MANISTIQUE – Two residents previously charged in relation to area break-ins have been arraigned on additional charges. The charges are the result of a joint investigation of Manistique Public Safety and the Michigan State Police.

Samantha Jo Jenerou, 22, of 853N Shunk Rd., and Michael Alan Olsen, 24, of 620 Garden Ave., had previously been charged with felonies relating to break-ins.

On Wednesday, both Jenerou and Olsen appeared via video conference in Schoolcraft County’s 93rd District Court.

Jenerou was charged with a total of nine felonies, six of which relate to break-ins: three counts of home invasion, second degree, which each carry a maximum punishment of up to 15 years in prison and/or a fine of $3,000; and three counts of larceny, $1,000 or more, but less than $20,000, which each carry a maximum penalty of 5 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000 or three times the value of the property stolen, whichever is greater.

Each incident allegedly occurred in June.

The three additional felony charges include: two counts of the delivery of the controlled substance Suboxone, which carry a maximum penalty of 7 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000, as well as possible driver’s license sanctions; and one count of conspiracy to commit the delivery of the controlled substance Suboxone, which carries the maximum penalty of 7 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000, as well as possible driver’s license sanctions.

The incidents allegedly occurred on Jan. 18, March 8, and June 5.

Jenerou remains in custody and has a preliminary hearing scheduled for July 25, at 10:30 a.m. Judge Mark E. Luoma continued her $25,000 cash or surety bond.

Olsen is faced with the same felonies as Jenerou, with the exception of one of the delivery of the controlled substance Suboxone charges. He will face a preliminary hearing for the eight felonies on July 25 at 11:30 a.m. Olsen also remains in custody, and had his cash or surety bond of $25,000 continued.

According to Manistique Public Safety Director Ken Golat, investigation continues, and, thus far, includes the solving of three residential burglaries in Manistique, two in Doyle Township, and one in Hiawatha Township.
