ROCHESTER POLICE PATROL: Identity Theft and Larcenies Kept Police Busy This Week


Rochester & Rochester Hills

YOU CAN’T HIDE YOUR IDENTITY. Officers received a call from Clinton Township Police informing them of a situation involving a domestic violence suspect who had been at their station earlier. CTPD informed them that the suspect was en route back to her listed address. When officers arrived, the suspect was not home. As they went to try knocking on a side door a red mustang pulled into the driveway. The officer approached the vehicle as its female driver exited. He asked her to identify herself, a request she ignored and continued to walk past him. He asked her again and after a bit of time she finally gave the officer her driver’s license. She was identified as the suspect and taken to the CTPD for transfer.

ONE FOR THE MONEY. Police were sent to a residence after a report of larceny from an automobile. The victim stated that his car had been burglarized the night before. He left his vehicle in his driveway at about 7 p.m. that night and arrived back the following morning at around 7:45 a.m. He noticed that his wallet had been missing and found that several charges were made on his credit cards earlier that morning. Police filed the report but both they and the victim are unsure of who it may have been.

TWO FOR THE SHOW. Officers arrived at another residence for another larceny from an automobile the next morning. The victim stated that he had parked his car in the driveway unlocked and left it for the night. The next morning he found that his sunglasses, a rechargeable phone chord, and a GPS system were gone. A report was filed but the victim and officer are both uncertain who had stolen his things.

THREE TO GET READY. Police received another call of another larceny from an automobile. The victim told officers that she and her husband both had things stolen from their cars the night before. Both vehicles were, again, in their driveway and left unlocked. A pair of wireless headphones was taken from the complainant’s car and a backpack filled with miscellaneous work items was taken from her husband’s car. Another report was filed but police have no leads on suspects at this time.

BUSTED BUT NOT BURGLARIZED. Officers responded to a call from Christian Memorial Gardens late at night. Once on scene they met with the caller/victim. She said that earlier that night she was inside the building when she heard a knock at the door. When she went to check the door there was no one there. She believes she had seen a light colored SUV speed out of the parking lot at that time. When she left the building and approached her car she noticed that the rear window had been smashed. Nothing was reported stolen and because the parking lot was dark at the time, the victim did not see the SUV’s license plate. There are currently no suspects.
