Apr. 30, 2009    ·    8:42 a.m.

Three females were arrested Wednesday night in a prostitution sting conducted by the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office in Ypsilanti Township.

Conducted on East Michigan Avenue, the string brought in the first suspect, a 28-year-old Milan resident, at 5 p.m., when she, like the other suspects, reportedly approached an undercover deputy “and offered him sexual acts,” according to a report from the department.

Police said all of the suspects were arrested and brought to the Washtenaw County Jail.

The second suspect, a 34-year-old Pinckney resident, was arrested at 7:45 p.m. The third suspect, a 40-year-old homeless female, was arrested at 8:40 p.m.

A gas-powered barbeque grill and four bags of returnable soft drink bottles were reported stolen from an Ypsilanti Township home Wednesday.

Deputies responded to the 2800 block of East Michigan Avenue at 2:30 p.m. Police said someone had broke into the owner’s storage shed and stole the items.

Suspects are unknown at this time.

One circular saw and two batteries were reported stolen from an Ypsilanti Township home Tuesday.

Deputies responded to the 700 block of Oswego Street at 10:20 a.m. and discovered the garage window had been broken. Police said the incident had likely occurred that night.
