Shelby, Utica, Macomb


NEVER TOO LATE TO TALK ABOUT STRANGER DANGER. Macomb County Sheriff’s Deputies reports a suspicious situation in the area of Ashland and Memory Ln. in Harrison Twp. A 15-year-old female reported to L’Anse Creuse High School Central that a male attempted to get her into his vehicle. The female was walking to the school bus stop when a vehicle was speeding past her, turned their car around, and pulled up beside her. He asked her if she wanted a ride to school, and when she declined, he demanded that she got into his car. The driver left the scene when the school bus pulled up, and the girl proceeded to get onto the school bus. The vehicle is described as an old silver four-door passenger vehicle. The driver is described as a white male in his early twenties with brown curly hair. The male was wearing a black t-shirt, a black and gray baseball cap and a silver chain around his neck. When situations like this arise, the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind parents to talk with their children about stranger danger.

REMINDER THAT PEDESTRIANS HAVE RIGHT-OF-WAY. Macomb County Sheriff Deputies were dispatched to the area of 21 Mile Rd. and Sanborn Dr., just east of Garfield Rd., where a vehicle had struck a pedestrian. A 2017 black GMC Sierra was driven by a 56-year-old male from Shelby Township. The vehicle was headed westbound on 21 Mile Rd. when it struck the pedestrian who was said to be crossing 21 Mile Rd. The driver and his wife were uninjured and released at the scene of the crime. The pedestrian, a 58-year-old male out of Macomb Twp., was transported to the hospital for his injuries. He remains in critical condition at this time. Anyone with information should call sheriff’s Detective Brandon Wiley at 586-307-8230.

FLAMES COULD BE SEEN coming from a residence on Hidden Oak Lane in Washington Twp. A 43-year-old female resident, who was home at the time of the fire, was able to escape with no injuries. Multiple fire departments worked to extinguish the fire. The Macomb County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating this situation.

$14,522. That’s how much the stolen items from a Manic Construction were worth. The site is in Utica off of Van Dyke on Hall Road. The day before, the crew foreman and his crew locked up thousands of dollars worth of tools in their trailer, which was backed into a garage. After this was done, the crew left for the day. Upon returning to the job site the next morning, the crew found the trailer had the lock cut off and the door was pried open. Items from a large price spectrum were taken – from $2000 gas compressors to $100 sledgehammers. Almost all the tools had be taken from the site. Extra patrols will be set up in the area and at nearby construction sites. This instance of larceny is an ongoing investigation – there are no suspects at this time.

Note: If you have any information on the aforementioned crimes or any other offenses, please call the Macomb County Sheriff at 586-469-5151.
