Two Dexter area break-ins reported since police issued warning of man 'casing' homes to rob
Whether or not they're related is unclear, but in the days following Friday's warning from the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office about a man "casing" homes to rob in the western part of the county, vehicles and a home were broken into in the Dexter area.
On Friday night, three vehicles were broken into. Among the items taken in the thefts were two sets of golf clubs, sunglasses and a bag. The incidents occurred in the 3000 block of Edison Street, the 7000 block of Dexter Ann Arbor Road and the 7000 block of Third Street.
Deputies were then dispatched to the 11000 block of North Territorial Road in Dexter Township for a home invasion that happened between 4 and 6 p.m. on Saturday. According to the sheriff's office, an unknown suspect entered the home through an unlocked window in the back of the house. Around 60 video games and DVDs were reported stolen. There are no suspects, though police continue to investigate.
Sgt. Geoff Fox of the sheriff's office said there was no reason to believe the man described in the warning is responsible but he didn't discount the possibility.
Police didn't have any more information to release about the reports of the man in the minivan. Fox said the warning stemmed from a citizen complaint.
