Thief swipes TVs, necklace, camera after kicking in front door at Ann Arbor apartment

By Kyle Feldscher

Two televisions, a necklace and cameras were stolen after the front door to an Ann Arbor apartment was kicked in during a home invasion last week.

Ann Arbor police Lt. Renee Bush said a 23-year-old Ann Arbor woman returned to her apartment in the 3300 block of Chelsea Circle at 6 p.m. Sunday to find the front door to her apartment had been kicked open. She had left the apartment at 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday and locked the door, Bush said.

The apartment had been ransacked and the TVs, necklace and cameras were the only items reported stolen. Bush said the stolen items were worth approximately $1,000.

Police did not have any suspect information to release Monday and continue to investigate the incident.

Anyone with information on the 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).

Sounds like the early "door-buster" shopping hype has now infected the criminal element as well. Another work GIG - Gen Instant gratification. Only one victim on Chelsea Circle suggests there was some neighbor or "visitor""or purchase info provided to the crooks. Even after nabbing a handful of home invaders the bubblesafe city crime reports just keep flooding in.

Is still posting the aggregated crime maps? I've tried every keyword search I can think of and can't find a recent one. Asking because I'd like to see the overall numbers in southeast Ann Arbor.
