Jewelry and several electronic items were reported stolen from a ransacked Superior Township home Monday.

Deputies from the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office were called to the 1200 block of Stamford Road for a home invasion believed to have occurred between 12:40 and 8:20 p.m., according to a Nixle alert.

The suspect or suspects entered the residence through a window in the back of the residence, the alert said.

"Once inside, the suspects went through drawers and ransacked rooms," the alert stated. "There were five to 11 black male teenagers seen in the area of the residence during the time the incident occurred."

No further information was immediately available.

Anyone with information regarding this incident should contact Deputy Hunt at the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office at (734) 994-2911 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SpeakUP.
