Police: Break-in at Industrial Tectonics in Dexter not related to Jackson Road burglaries last week

By Kyle Feldscher

Industrial Tectonics Inc., a business in the village of Dexter, reported Monday the business was broken into and multiple items were stolen, according to police.

Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office deputies believe the intruder, or intruders, entered the building through a ground floor door. The break-in reportedly occurred at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday, according to sheriff's office spokesman Derrick Jackson.

Sheriff’s office Sgt. Thomas Pennington said Tuesday that the break-in doesn’t appear to be related to two burglaries on Jackson Road in Scio Township last week. Break-ins at Coffee House Creamery and Main Dish Kitchen were both reported to police on Feb. 27, according to police.

Officials from Industrial Tectonics, a high precision ball maker, were not immediately available to speak about the break-in Tuesday.

Police still are looking for suspects in the Industrial Tectonics break-in, and the investigation is ongoing. A list of the stolen items was not available Tuesday afternoon.

Anyone with information on the incident is encouraged to call the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office anonymous tip line at 734-973-7711.
