Police arrest 3 suspected of stealing jewelry from Depot Town store
Ypsilanti police Wednesday arrested three people suspected of breaking into a business in the city and swiping what was described as an extensive amount of jewelry, cash and precious metal.
Someone broke into a business in the first block of East Cross Street in Ypsilanti in the early morning hours of Tuesday and took the items, police said in a news release.
Then on Wednesday, police investigating the case went to a home on South Harris Street in Ypsilanti Township and arrested a 54-year-old woman on suspicion of receiving and concealing stolen property.
Further investigation led them to two apartments in the 200 block of South Grove Street, where they arrested an 18-year-old man and a 35-year-old man. One was accused of receiving and concealing stolen property and the other of breaking and entering.
Police said they found some of the property at one of the apartments.
The woman was released pending charges, and the men were held at the Washtenaw County jail, pending arraignment, expected Friday.
