Burglary suspects caught carrying TV, guitar into woods
Police caught three burglary suspects Wednesday thanks to an area resident who saw something suspicious and called 911.
About 8:20 p.m. Wednesday, the resident saw three people walking in the 2100 block of Holmes Road in Ypsilanti Township carrying several items, including a television and a guitar, Washtenaw County sheriff’s deputies said in a news release. The resident thought the behavior was suspicious and called 911, telling the dispatcher that the three may have gotten the items in a burglary.
Deputies responded and checked a path leading through a wooded area nearby. The deputies saw the three suspects carrying the items. The three, all males ranging in age from 16 to 19, ran when they saw deputies, but the deputies caught them after a short chase.
Deputies found stolen items in the woods and in the suspects’ pockets. The suspects, 16, 17 and 19, all live in Ypsilanti Township. The 16-year-old was released, but the two adults were held in the Washtenaw County Jail pending arraignment, which is expected Friday, deputies said.
