Thompson, who pleaded not guilty to all counts, was convicted by a jury Wednesday and faces sentencing May 11.

An Ypsilanti Police officer watched as an EMU Police officer tried to stop a vehicle near LeForge Road and Huron River Drive at 1 a.m. Wednesday morning.

After the driver, later identified as 24-year-old Jamil Antoine Chandler, failed to stop and instead turned onto Green Road, pulling into a parking lot, officers pursued the driver on foot, using a Taser to incapacitate him in front of an apartment building. The 24-year-old man, who had multiple warrants out for his arrest, was detained by EMU Police.

The Sheriff's office reported a man broke into the home through a sliding glass door and took some jewelry, though they were scared off by someone who was sleeping in the house at the time of the break-in. The suspect fled on foot, leaving the neighborhood to the north, according to WCSO.

Witnesses reported the burglar was a black male of medium build, wearing a dark pullover coat zipped midway down, with a white emblem on the front, dark pants, and a dark hat. No suspects have been identified, though anyone with information on the case is asked to contact the WCSO.

Heroin Possession
A 24-year-old man was arrested Wednesday morning after Ypsilanti Police stopped him near the intersection of Ballard and Olive Streets and, after searching him, found packets of heroin and drug paraphernalia.
