Police detain two teens with burglary tools walking in Pittsfield Township
Pittsfield Township police Thursday morning arrested two teenagers carrying what police said were burglary tools along a street near Washtenaw Avenue.
A Pittsfield officer saw the two walking along the side of the street in the 2500 block of Hawks Avenue about 10:20 a.m.
Because there have been several home invasions in the area during daylight hours recently, the officer stopped them and began talking to them. The teens told the officer they were on probation for home invasion.
The officer searched a backpack they were carrying and found burglary tools, police said. The two were taken into custody and held in the Washtenaw County Jail while police investigate whether they are linked to recent home invasions. A report will be forwarded to the prosecutor’s office.
Both teens are from Ypsilanti. One is 18 and one is 19.
