One Ann Arbor resident and two Ypsilanti Township residents were arrested Wednesday for their suspected involvement in an Ypsilanti Township burglary.

Police said the witness reported three or four males running down the street carrying electronic equipment and fleeing the area in the vehicle mentioned above. Deputies responded to Timber Ridge and Grove Road at 1:25 a.m.

It was later discovered a burglary had occurred in the 1900 block of Timber Ridge.

The three were arrested and transported to the Washtenaw County Jail after a short foot pursuit. They will be arraigned later today.

“He was linked to numerous burglaries of coin operated machines in Ypsilanti Township over the past week,” a report issued by police this morning said.

Borener’s pretrial is scheduled for next week. He was remanded to the Washtenaw County Jail.
