Thanks to a vigilant Huron resident, a 25 year old Redford suspect was arrested on July 30 for stealing rims and tires off of a car in the Claremont Subdivision.
According to Huron Township Police, officers responded to the 27000 block of Mocking Bird East on July 30 after it was reported that a vehicle had its rims and tires stolen.
When officers arrived, they observed that the vehicle had been left standing on landscaping blocks.
The stolen items were worth nearly $4,000.
According to Police Chief Everette Robbins, a resident who lives in the subdivision observed a suspicious vehicle in the neighborhood and gave the license place information to police.
Huron Police, along with the Western Wayne Community Resource Team, conducted an investigation during the day on Thursday, leading up to an arrest at around 2:30 p.m. in Romulus.
A warrant will be submitted to the Wayne County Prosecuting Attorney while an investigation is ongoing.
“There has been some recent activity in our neighborhoods in the Will Carleton Road area recently and our residents are on edge. We have taken necessary measures to step up enforcement in that area. We have communicated effectively with our residents and they are very vigilant and aware of their surroundings. We appreciate all they do to work with us,” said Robbins.
“This is another example of what we can accomplish when all of the stakeholders in the community come together, communicate and share information.”
