After fleeing Michigan, 37-year-old Chad Whitley, who burglarized a home in the 31900 block of Pennsylvania Road in Huron Township on Dec. 7, was arrested Monday by United States Marshalls in Colorado Springs, CO.

Whitley is currently incarcerated in that jurisdiction and will be extradited back to Huron Township within the next few weeks.

Video footage of the burglary was released to members of the media shortly after the investigation, which helped identify Whitley and lead to his arrest.


Police continue to seek the public’s help to identify this man, who robbed a home on Pennsylvania Road on Dec. 7.

Authorities are still trying to identify a second suspect who teamed up with Whitley to rob the home last month.

Police Chief Everette Robbins said that his department requested the assistance of the United States Marshalls Service Fugitive Apprehension Team to assist in Whitley’s arrest.

“Shortly after the warrant was issued, we received information that Mr. Whitley had fled the state. Mr. Whitley knew that we were looking for him and I am sure he believed that if he left the state, we would not continue to look for him; he could not have been more wrong. If someone commits a crime in our Township, we will use all of our available resources, such as the United States Marshalls, to hold them accountable, regardless of where they go,” Robbins said.

“We appreciate the quick assistance of the Marshalls Fugitive Apprehension Team. They tracked this individual for several days through several states.”

Whitley will be charged with a felony home invasion count, malicious destruction of property and is a fourth-time habitual offender.

Below is home video footage of the second suspect involved in the Dec. 7 home invasion. If you have any information about the identity of this man, contact the Huron Township Police Department at 734-753-4400.
