The Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office is on the lookout for two suspects wanted in relation to a burglary in Ypsilanti Township Thursday night.

A neighbor called 911 at 6:50 p.m. on the 1700 block of Meadow Woods Boulevard to report a burglary in progress. Deputies responded to the scene and called the Van Buren Police’s K-9 unit to search for the suspects, who were not located.

Police said entry was gained through the side window. They said the suspects left through the front door with a laptop computer.

Both suspects are described as 20-year-old black males with a goatee and mustache. One suspect was wearing a brown coat with tan sleeves and a brown baseball cap. The second was wearing a black coat with blue jeans and a black baseball cap.

Drunk driving
A 38-year-old Wayne resident wound up in the hospital instead of jail Thursday, after he was arrested last night for drunk driving in Ypsilanti Township.

Sheriff’s deputies and Michigan State Police troopers were dispatched to the 200 block of Joe Hall Drive at 5:40 p.m. for a reported drunk driver.

Police said the suspect was driving around a gas station parking lot with his door open trying to pull to pump. He was arrested and about to be taken to the Washtenaw County Jail, but began having medical issues.

Huron Valley Ambulance was called, and the suspect was called and the suspect was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital, where a search warrant was executed for his blood.

Stolen vehicle
A maroon 2008 Dodge Caliber was reported stolen Thursday in Ypsilanti Township.

Washtenaw County Sheriff’s deputies were called at 5:15 p.m. to the 1100 block of E. Michigan Avenue, where the vehicle, with the keys inside, had been stolen from a parking lot. The suspects are unknown.
