Silverware set stolen during home invasion

By Kyle Feldscher

Someone stole a silverware set from a Salem Township home during a home invasion Saturday, Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office deputies said Monday.

According to deputies, the break-in occurred between 9 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. in the 5600 block of Seven Mile Road. A door window was broken, allowing the intruder, or intruders, to unlock the door.

A Rogers Brothers silverware set was the only item reported stolen, according to deputies.

A witness said a full-sized gray Dodge pickup truck with a ladder rack is a possible suspect vehicle. However, there was no suspect description released by deputies Monday.

Anyone with information on the incident is encouraged to call the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office anonymous tip line at 734-973-7711 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK UP (773-2587).

If it's sterling, which knowing the Rodgers brand it isn't, a single utensil could easily fetch over $65 today. An entire set, whew... That's one helluva lick for the criminal if they know the right place to go to get the best price, and one helluva loss for the victim knowing that their (more than likely) family heirloom silver set is just going to be melted down... These thieves sound like they know what they're doing and knew exactly what to go for... Inside job, perhaps? Family member? Friend? Hope not...

This sounds like the nefarious work of that fugitive Jean Valjean.
