A witness contacted police on Oct. 20 to report that three men were trying to steal wheels from a car at Don Gooley Cadillac. When the witness pulled up, the three males went under the chain fence and into a mini-van. As the van pulled away, a 23-year-old Detroit resident fell out of the vehicle. According to a police report, the mini-van continued to flee and the man ran toward a nearby business. When police arrived, they found two cinder blocks next to the Cadillac and the tires had no lugnuts. A short time later, police received a call about a man who was sweaty and asked, "which way to Detroit?" Officers were able to locate the man, and arrest him.
Police responded to an alarm Oct. 23 at the Subway at 24512 Harper. When officers arrived, they found the front glass door broken and unlocked. Upon further investigation, officers found the cash register missing and a rock lying on the ground near the front door which is believed to have been used to break the window.
Police were called Oct. 22 after a man described as 6-feet tall, 180-pounds who was wearing blue jeans and a blue hoody stole several watches and exited Kmart without paying. He fled on foot through the parking lot.
A man wearing a black leather coat, blue hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans reportedly placed three bottles of liquor under his sweatshirt from the Rite Aid on Marter Oct. 22 and then fled on a bike.
