Break-in suspect arrested after chase

By Paula Gardner

For the second time in two days, Pittsfield Township police responded to a possible business break-in and ended up arresting a suspect.

The most recent incident took place at about 1 a.m. Monday at the Harvest Moon Cafe, 5484 W. Michigan Ave. near Carpenter Road.

Police responded to a burglary alarm, and as they arrived spotted a man running away.

Officers chased him and arrested him, after determining that restaurant had been burglarized.

The man - a 42-year-old resident of Westland - is now in the Washtenaw County Jail, awaiting arraignment on burglary; resisting and obstructing police; and parole violation charges.

This arrest follows a similar scenario early Saturday morning at an insurance office on South State. In that case, Pittsfield Township police responded after a witness reported a possible break-in.

Thank you AAPD for getting this criminal off the street. Now it's up to a judge NOT to be lenient and just let this guy back out so he can continue to be a criminal..... PLEASE DON'T GET MORRIS!!!!!!

Billy, I agree. morris would doubtless pat him on the back "you-poor-misunderstood-thing-you-you-won't-do-it-again-will-you?" and send him on his way.....
