Just to make sure, police tell area news media Thursday that the "male subject in the photos has been located and has been CLEARED of any connection to the case."

Police say the man has been interviewed.  They continue to look forwhoever it was who may have committed a credit card fraud at Leppinks Foods earlier this month.

Police say that any further tips or leads can be sent to the Montcalm County Sheriff’s Office at 989-931-5253.
