Houghton Lake — Michigan State Police are investigating the theft of a front end loader that crashed into a garage, officials said.

Troopers with the state police's Houghton Lake Post were called Tuesday morning to respond to a report that the machine, which belongs to the Roscommon County Road Commission, had been stolen from a construction zone in the area on Bradford Drive near Old U.S. Highway 27 in Lake Township, about 200 miles northwest of Detroit. 

The tractor was found a short time later crashed into a homeowner's garage, police said.

Anyone with information about the theft should call the Houghton Lake Post at (989) 422-5103.
