Q: What are local background checks in Michigan, their advantages and where to request them?
by patty
A:Background check is a general description of looking into a person's history and records but is not specific enough to tell what is actually included. Some background checks can go as far as looking to verify education history such as college degrees, certifications and so on in addition to criminal checks. Most records searched are generally statewide, whether a simple address search to driving history and others provided by state agencies. Criminal records however can be found through various levels of government which means it can be accessed locally. Criminal records on a local level can be sought from county sheriffs or police departments providing various types of reports from incidents to arrests and persons in custody.

Caro man killed in plane crash built recycling business, enjoyed flying and helping others
A Caro business owner who was killed during a plane crash loved to fly and went out of his way to do things for others in his community where he was well-known, according to his younger brother, Jason Kozan. CARO, MI — When Jason Kozan introduced himself to people in and around Caro, many times they would ask, 'Are you related to Mark?'That's because Mark J. Kozan, a Caro business owner killed in an April 19  plane crash in Shiawassee County, went out of his way to do things for others in his community, according to Jason Kozan, his younger brother. Mark Kozan, 49, was a passenger in Richard Hayward's single-engine plane when it went down about 2:15 p.m. Saturday, April 19, near the intersection of M-13 and Cronk Road, the Shiawassee County Sheriff's Department reports.Both men were killed in the crash. Related: Vassar pilot killed in Shiawassee County plane crash started flying at young age, retired from U.S. Air ForceJason Kozan said he remembers his brother would shovel snow for people in need and helped many people with mechanical things or whatever else they needed.Mark KozanHe also loved to fly planes and his helicopter, which he purchased eight or more years ago, Kozan said. Mark Kozan and Hayward were headed down to the Fowlerville area to pick up the helicopter when the plane crash happened, Jason Kozan said. Mark Kozan started out flying small planes like Cessnas, Jason Kozan said, and eventually bought the helicopter because he could land without a runway. 'It was a great way to increase getting things done in an efficient manner,' Kozan said. 'He was that type of person, he liked to get things done efficiently.'He spent a lot of time at the airport because that was his passion, Kozan said. He was born Sept. 16, 1964, in Detroit, the son of James and Nancy Kozan, brother of Michelle (Donald) Salmine and Jason (Julie) Kozan, according to his obituary. Mark Kozan was not married and did not have children of his own, but he enjoyed spending time with and doing things for his nieces and nephews.'My boys got to go in the helicopter,' Kozan said, noting the last ride they took was at the end of last summer as the colors of the leaves were changing. 'That sparked an interest in flying in my 6-year-old son.'The family plans to set up a donation fund to create a program that allows young people to try out flying and learning about what it takes to be a pilot.'Him taking my boys up in the helicopter was a very touching moment for me,' Kozan said. 'He wasn't the type of person to say, 'I love you,' but by his actions, you knew it,' he said. 'He didn't have to say it, you knew it.' Jason Kozan and other family members were at Mark Kozan's business, Riverview Auto, 987 Ellington, in Caro, on Tuesday, April 22, working to fulfill obligations and determine what to do next. Mark Kozan started building the business at the age of 21, his brother said. The business buys and recycles a variety of materials and sells other materials. The business also has a scrapyard, provides custom automotive parts, sells and repairs golf carts and provides a wide variety of services.  'He was trying to keep as many things as possible out of the landfills,' Kozan said. His business and hobby of flying intersected, as Kozan would often take a plane or his helicopter to pick up a part for a customer out of state or elsewhere in Michigan, his brother said. Police, firemen, and medical personnel respond to a plane crash where two males were fatally injured on Saturday, April 19, 2014 at the intersection of M13 and Cronk Road on the border of Clayton and Venice Township. Katie McLean | MLive.comThe Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the plane crash. Witnesses reported hearing the plane's motor 'spitting and sputtering' and the propeller turning slowly, before it made several sharp turns and lowered its landing gear, according to a news release from the Shiawassee County Sheriff's Department.It appeared to witnesses the plane was attempting to make an emergency landing when it crashed nose front into a field, the news release reads. The plane was removed from the field around 9 p.m. Saturday and taken to Owosso Community Airport.The family is planning a private memorial service and will spread Mark Kozan's ashes during a ceremony outdoors. Jason Kozan thanked the many people for their support and for the many phone calls, hugs and items dropped off for the family, more evidence of his brother's popularity in the area and throughout Michigan. The family would like to meet and the people who saw the plane go down and went to help the two men. Now, a few days after the crash, they are trying to stay positive. 'We're trying to remember him and all good things he did,' Kozan said about his brother, 'and not sit here and fret about he's gone.' — Brad Devereaux is a public safety reporter for MLive/The Saginaw News.

Bay County probationer, parolee charged with heroin offenses after police raid trailer
A parolee and a probationer are charged with drug offenses after police raided their Monitor Township mobile home and reportedly recovered heroin and related paraphernalia. Scott M. KuerbitzBAY CITY, MI — A parolee and a probationer are charged with drug offenses after police raided their Monitor Township mobile home and reportedly recovered heroin and related paraphernalia.About 10 p.m. on Thursday, April 10, officers from the Bay Area Narcotics Enforcement Team — or BAYANET — and the Bay City Public Safety Department’s VIPER Unit executed a search warrant on the home of 31-year-old Scott M. Kuerbitz at 3332 Sherwood Drive in the Westwood Mobile Home Park. Kuerbitz was home at the time, as was friend Nicholas A. Marchbanks, 27, and a 22-year-old female.Through the search, officers found heroin and $78 on Marchbanks, as well as a burnt spoon, digital scale and more heroin in the residence and a kit of needles, spoon, water and a tourniquet in Kuerbitz’s 2001 Honda Civic, court records show. Interviewed by police, Kuerbitz said he has lived in the home for about a month and has allowed Marchbanks to stay there for three weeks. Kuerbitz told officers he uses heroin every two to four days, but told Marchbanks not to sell from his home, court records show.When officers said they found a bindle of heroin in his room, Kuerbitz said it was his.“I used some and wanted to save some for later,” he said, according to court records. “The one time I save a little then you guys have to come over and find it.”He added that the heroin kit found in his car belonged to the woman who was present. The woman also told police she last used heroin about 48 hours beforehand, court records show.Marchbanks told police the heroin they found on him is his, and that it amounted to 1.2 grams. He said he acquired it from a man for $130 per gram, and he still owed money on the debt. He said he typically gets 2 to 3 grams at a time.Nicholas A. MarchbanksMarchbanks added that he doesn’t sell heroin like he used to, but helps people out and tries to make enough money to cover his habit, court records show.He added that he uses about a gram of heroin a day and shoots up three to four times per day, court records show.Police arrested Marchbanks at the scene, but released Kuerbitz and the woman.Marchbanks was on probation at the time, Bay County Circuit Judge Joseph K. Sheeran in April 2012 having sentenced him to three years of it, plus 234 days in jail. The sentence resulted from Marchbanks having pleaded guilty to possession with intent to deliver less than 50 grams of heroin. In relation to that incident, Marchbanks had told investigators he bought heroin for $110 per gram in Detroit then sold it in Bay County for $250 to $300 per gram. He also said he may have sold heroin to a man who suffered a fatal overdose in Hampton Township in August 2011.Kuerbitz was on parole, having been granted that status in June 2011. Kuerbitz was sent to prison in October 2010 on convictions of delivery of a controlled substance, attempted assault with a dangerous weapon and domestic violence, third offense.Marchbanks on April 11 was arraigned on one count of delivering a narcotic or cocaine less than 50 grams, a 20-year felony. On April 15, authorities issued a warrant for Kuerbitz, who was subsequently arraigned two days later on single counts of maintaining a drug house, a two-year high court misdemeanor, and possession of a controlled substance less than 25 grams, second offense, which double the maximum potential penalty to eight years in prison.The woman at the home when police executed the warrant has not been arraigned on a related offense.Marchbanks is scheduled to appear for a preliminary examination before Bay County District Judge Dawn A. Klida at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 24. Kuerbitz is to appear for a preliminary examination before Chief District Judge Timothy J. Kelly at 9 a.m. on Thursday, May 1.

Alleged getaway driver killed after Detroit home invasion identified as Robert King, 29, of Detroit
A gunfight ensued after two men broke into a home on Glastonbury in Detroit shortly after midnight Thursday. DETROIT, MI -- A gunfight ensued after two men broke into a home on Glastonbury in Detroit shortly after midnight Thursday. The exchange continued outside the home and a getaway driver was shot. He crashed the car into a nearby home and died. Two other men fled on foot. The Wayne County Medical Examiner's office conducted an autopsy the identified the man as 29-year-old Robert King of Detroit. He died of a gunshot to the chest and on Friday was identified by his uncle and father. Police say they are treating the shooting as a homicide at this time and the investigation will be forwarded to the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office upon completion. The homeowner who killed King was questioned and released. 'What we have is two suspects who had broken into a home at that location' through a side window, Detroit Police Sgt. Michael Woody said Thursday. They were 'walking though the house and the homeowner and a brother were in the basement playing video games' and 'heard the people inside the home. 'There was some sort of confrontation inside the home and the homeowner fired rounds at the suspects.' Woody said the suspects found themselves trapped inside the house blocked by a locked security door, which they kicked down to escape. The homeowner followed the suspects outside and saw them heading for a getaway vehicle parked in the driveway. Woody says one of the suspects fired at the homeowner as he entered the vehicle. The homeowner returned fire striking the driver, who at the time was reversing, which caused him to driver straight back over the median and into the neighboring house. According to information provided to MLive Detroit by the Detroit Police Department last week, the city has recorded 10 justifiable shootings that resulted in the deaths of eight suspected criminals this year.

Dearborn Heights doctor convicted of illegally prescribing 3.7 million pain pills in two years
The Centers for disease control says pain killers like OxyContin are responsible for more overdose deaths than cocaine and heroin combined. DETROIT, MI -- The Centers for disease control says pain killers like OxyContin are responsible for more overdose deaths than cocaine and heroin combined. Although pills are sold illegally on the streets, a single 80 mg OxyContin pill fetching up to $80 according to law enforcement, the main suppliers are doctors. Dr. Basil Qandil of Dearborn Heights is one of these prescription pill drug kingpins, the U.S. Attorneys Office says. He's been convicted after a two-week trial of 34 federal crimes in connection with his issuance of 3.7 million 'dosage units' between 2011 and 2013. 'He wrote unlawful prescriptions for narcotic drugs including Oxycodone and Vicodin, which were resold on the street market or used by addicted patients,' the office says. In addition to prescribing highly addictive opiod pain pills, which affect the brain in a way similar to heroin, with only 'cursory' or no examination at all, the U.S. Attorneys Office says Qandil committed Medicare fraud. He conducted unnecessary pulmonary exams for which he then billed Medicare, reaping nearly $1.5 million that he stashed in an Amman, Jordan bank account. “Diversion of prescription drugs causes significant harm,' U.S. Attorney Barbara L. McQuade said in a prepared statement Friday. 'The number of fatal overdoses from prescription drugs in the United States last year was more than six times the number of fatal overdoses from all other illegal drugs combined.”

Edgar, dog abandoned in and rescued from garbage can in Detroit, finds a new home
Edgar, as he was named after being rescued, might have died inside the garbage can someone trapped him in had a passerby not heard his whimpers. DETROIT, MI -- Edgar, the name provided him after the rescue, might have died inside the garbage can someone trapped him in had a passerby not heard his whimpers. Now the Michigan Humane Society in Detroit says Edgar, who was treated for urine burns and an upper respiratory infection, has recovered and found a new home. He found a 'forever home' on Wednesday, the Michigan Humane Society says. A man walking his own dog about 11 a.m. on March 9 discovered the 4-year-old Maltese-mix after hearing it whimper from within a trashcan in a Detroit alley. A $2,500 reward is being offered for information leading to the ID and conviction of the person or persons responsible for putting the dog in the trashcan. Anyone with information potentially useful in the investigation may call the Michigan Humane Society Cruelty Hotline, 313-872-3401. 'The MHS rescue driver found that Edgar had the handle of a bag twisted around his neck and was covered in severe urine burns,' the Humane Society said in a statement after Edga's rescue. 'It appears that Edgar had been confined at another location for a long time before being put in the garbage can.'
