Middle school break-in suspect damages roof vents
A man damaged roof vents and threw a motor onto the ground while on top of Forsythe Middle School Sunday afternoon during an attempted break-in, according to police.
Ann Arbor police Lt. Renee Bush said the break-in attempt took place between 12:45 and 1 p.m. Sunday at the school, 1655 Newport Road. Bush said an employee in the building heard movement on the roof and went outside to check out the noise.
“He then saw a subject holding something in his hands on the roof, then the subject was gone,” she said.
Employees discovered several roof vents were damaged and a motor had been removed. The motor was lying on the ground after it was dropped from the roof.
The man on the roof was described as white, younger and shirtless, with a clean-shaven face. There were two other suspects but no description was available for those individuals.
Nothing was reported stolen and the investigation into the incident continues.
Anyone with information on this break-in is encouraged to call the Ann Arbor police anonymous tip line at 734-794-6939 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK UP (773-2587).
