The Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office issued an alert Tuesday morning about a suspicious incident involving a man who approached a Dexter Township home and told the residents he was armed and working with police.
Around 8:30 p.m. Monday, the "suspicious individual" went to the door of a home in the 12000 block of North Territorial Road, according to an alert sent out over the Nixle messaging system.
The homeowners described the man as "stocky" with brown hair and a buzz cut and goatee. The man used the name "Horace," the alert said.
"(He) indicated he was working with the police and looking for someone," the alert continued. "(He) stated he was armed with two handguns, however none were seen."
