Dutton was arrested by uniformed officers on patrol about 10 p.m. Monday after they spotted a white conversion van believed to have been used in larcenies the previous night. Police said stolen property was recovered from the van and a home on Ann Arbor’s west side.
To this point, he’s the only person facing criminal charges stemming from Monday’s arrests.
Police released a warning to residents last week about an increase in the number of vehicle break-ins throughout the city and then reported 12 more incidents occurring on Sunday and Monday. Thieves would go through parking lots and spot a vehicle with valuable items in plain sight before entering through an unlocked door or smashing a window to get inside.
Dutton is free on bond after posting 10 percent of $25,000, according to jail records. He returns to court for a preliminary examination at 8:30 a.m. March 28.
