$2,000 reward after Grandville jeweler burglarized


GRANDVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) -- Grandville jeweler Dennis Engel is offering a $2,000 reward after his Chicago Drive store was burglarized overnight.

Around 2:30 a.m. Friday, a single, masked person broke the glass rear door and gained access to Richard Engels Jewelers, police say.

The burglar took a large amount of jewelry, the value of which is still being determined. He or she then left out the back door and traveled in an unknown direction.

Police said they believe the suspect vehicle might be a dark-colored Chrysler Town and Country minivan from the early to mid-2000s.

Grandville shop vandalized after anti-gay post


GRANDVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) -- A business owner who sparked controversy by posting opinions on Facebook about refusing to serve certain groups, including gay customers, has been the target of vandalism.

Last week, Dieseltec owner Brian Klawiter made headlines when he posted that he would refuse to provide service to openly gay customers.

"I would not hesitate to refuse service to an openly gay person or persons. Homosexuality is wrong, period. If you want to argue this fact with me then I will put your vehicle together with all bolts and no nuts and you can see how that works," he wrote on Facebook on April 14.

Overnight Tuesday, graffiti was sprayed on the Grandville, Mich., building reading, "I (heart) nuts."
