The Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office received reports of four vehicles that were broken into Wednesday night in Ypsilanti Township.

The Sheriff's office sent an e-mail to township residents, warning about the rash of thefts that all occurred in the same neighborhood, near the Gault Village Shopping Center on Grove Road.

The e-mail warned residents to keep valuables out of sight in parked vehicles, or to take them out of the car or put them in the trunk. Residents receiving the email were also encouraged to keep their eyes open and report suspicious people or activity to the WCSO, and to keep outside porch and garage lights on during the night.

A WCSO deputy responded to the first such complaint at 7 a.m. Thursday on the 1100 block of Georgina Drive. The vehicle was entered sometime overnight and two flashlights were reported stolen.

At 7:30 a.m. Thursday, a WCSO deputy responded to another complaint of a car break-in on the 1000 block of Lester Avenue. The passenger-side window had been broken, and an iPod and an AM/FM stereo were reported stolen from the vehicle.

The owner of another vehicle parked on the 1100 block of Hull Street complained at 7:30 a.m. Thursday to the WCSO of a larceny. The driver-side window had been smashed, according to the owner, and a GPS system and a Nintendo DS console with games were reported stolen.

A WCSO deputy responded to the fourth such complaint at 7:30 p.m. Thursday on the 1300 block of Gault Road. This vehicle was left unlocked, and several tools, all of which had the name “Ray” engraved on them, were reported stolen.

The WCSO reported that no suspects have yet been identified in any of the larcenies.

Seven youths and three parents cited in YPD curfew enforcement
Seven Ypsilanti juveniles were detained and cited Thursday night when Ypsilanti Police officers conducted an operation aimed at enforcing the local curfew ordinance.

The seven given citations, police reported, ranged in ages of 14 to 17. Three parents were also cited, according to YPD, since the local ordinance requires parents and guardians of juveniles to administer proper control in accordance with the curfew.

All those cited Thursday were released to parents, guardians or adult siblings. The YPD reported that similar enforcement operations are planned in the future to “maintain diligence” with regard to the curfew.

In the city of Ypsilanti, it is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to be on a street, alley or public place in the city, or to possess spray paint between the hours of 11 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. There are exceptions in the ordinance if the minor is accompanied by someone with legal custody for the child, or if the minor is on the street because of a job or an errand for their parent or guardian.

Penalties could be assigned to the juveniles based on the decision of the juvenile court that YPD refers curfew violations to, police said.

Stolen car
A car was reported stolen to Washtenaw County Sheriff Office deputies 10:50 a.m. Thursday from a parking lot on the 700 block of North Redwood Street in Ypsilanti Township.

The vehicle was a maroon 1995 Honda Accord, and WCSO reported that no suspects have yet been identified.

Attempted breaking and entering
Two 16-year-old males were arrested by Ypsilanti Police officers at 1 p.m. Thursday after the employee of a business on the 10 block of South Prospect Street said the two tried to force their way into the back door of the building.

The employee said after confronting the two subjects they left the area on foot. Police stopped two 16-year-olds a short distance away from the business. Both were placed under arrest and a bag of burglary tools was confiscated.

The two juvenile suspects were processed and questioned at Ypsilanti Police Department before being transported to the Washtenaw County Juvenile Detention Center in Ann Arbor to await a hearing on the alleged crime.

WCSO deputies responded at 7 p.m. Thursday to the report of a burglary at a home on the 1100 block of Stamford Road in Superior Township.

Entry was gained to the house through an unlocked bathroom window during the day Thursday, WCSO said, and a Playstation 3 console, two cellular phones, an iPod Touch, and a Game Boy Advance were reported stolen. No suspects are known at this time, the WCSO reported.

A victim told Ypsilanti Police at 9:40 a.m. Thursday that a “caregiver” had stolen two money orders valued at $280. Police said the investigation into the larceny is ongoing.

Police said the caregiver was assigned to the victim to perform tasks the victim could not herself. The larceny allegedly took place at a house on the 700 block of Towner Street in Ypsilanti, and police said they are trying to located to caregiver, a suspect in the case.
