    There's a reason why one of the POIs is still in the county lockup ;) Marijuana charges in these parts usually don't keep folks behind bars. My guess is that there is more going on with the POI. :moo:

    Isn't he being held on a parole violation with a high bail?

    ^ I hadn't heard about the parole violation, but, yes, I read that bail is high and likely the reason that he's still in jail. I thought it was marijuana issue.

    Brief update on WDIV. Search taking place is definitely related to the murder of April Millsap. More on 5:00 and 6:00 reports.

    Hmmm, so this search appears to be in the vicinity of where the two lived who were taken into custody (for the marijuana plants) in the first search warrant?? I didn't realize one of the two were still in custody, either. Interesting!!

    This search is one of the strangest things I've ever seen. The only theory I can come up with is that someone (the guy in jail?) confessed to killing April and also to killing someone else and hiding the body on the Goodlell's property. With the coroner's van and the dogs, it has to be a body they are looking for.

    No he is charged with delivery/manufacture marijuana and maintain a drug house.

    He has prior convictions. Convicted for Breaking & Entering a Building With Intent in 2005. Convicted for Child Support - Failing to Pay, in 2007 and 2012.

    Local ABC station, WXYZ, reported that authorities were looking for items in April's possession. What is interesting is that the reporter for the segment, Simon Shaykhet, up until last year, was employed as the spokesperson for the FBI's Detroit Office. It's likely to assume that he has access to some "insider information".

    Just wanted to clarify...this is a 2nd Search warrant on the same house in Goodells, MI. They were shown on tv searching the property behind the house with shovels...also another news report said they asked permission to dig up a spot behind the neighbors house...I think I heard about the neighbors house either on channel 4 detroit news or 107.1 port huron radio station...

    I really hope the new searching has turned up something substantive that leads to an arrest for April's murder. No time to check for updates, heading out to work.

    Law enforcement experts told Local 4 the nature of the grid search suggests they are looking for something small and sturdy -- something that would have survived more than three weeks outside and not been destroyed by recent heavy rains.
    A lawyer for the family who owns the home made it clear they have had quite enough of the search warrants.
    "Although they have been fully cooperative with investigators from the beginning, their house has been “ransacked” a second time. They want the harassment to stop," said attorney Dean Ankouny.

    The FBI, Michigan State Police, Armada Police, and local officials spent a great deal of time at the Goodells County Park yesterday as they walked the perimeter of a portion Wales Township fields. All that was stated by Michigan State Police was that a sealed search warrant is being executed in connection with the April Millsap slaying investigation.

    I think it was more than a coincidence that the home was searched - "ransacked" as the owners' attorney described it - again yesterday.

    :praying: that LE has their man and that there will soon be an arrest and someone charged with April's murder.

    Police have person of interest in Armada teen's killing

    Ursula Watson/The Detroit News

    Port Huron — A 32-year-old man arrested on marijuana charges is a person of interest in the disappearance of an Armada teen whose body was found in a ditch alongside a hiking trail.

    James Donald VanCallis was taken into custody last month after the FBI searched a home in Goodells in St. Clair County. He and his father, James Bernard VanCallis, 66, were in St. Clair County Court Tuesday on drug charges related to a pot growing operation at their home...
