Michigan State Police warn of break-ins in Lima, Lyndon townships

By Staff

Police are warning residents in western Washtenaw County of a series of daytime burglaries this week.

State Police Sgt. Tony Cuevas said at least three break-ins occurred earlier this week in Lyndon Township, and two occurred Thursday in Lima Township.

The burglar or burglars kicked in doors between 8 and 11 a.m. and stole "whatever they could grab," Cuevas said.

The burglaries occurred in the M-52 and Jerusalem Road area and the area around Joslin Lake.

Cuevas said a resident saw a suspicious man near one of the scenes, but a detailed description of the man was not available this morning.

Oh my condescension is showing! Billy...we all know what you meant, but unless you have the keystroke speed and accuracy of a programmer or data entry personnel, typing mistakes are made. But in all reality...a 12 ga would knock me down, I prefer a girlie 20 ga. All of the talk about taking a life for "material objects" being wrong...I disagree, someone that is willing to kick down a door, or bust a window to enter my property will not tell me.."hey, I'm just here to rob you, ain't gonna kill you". I will defend my family and home to the best of my ability. My home is and should be my sanctuary; a safe haven if you will.

Yeah Billy,I'm sure it will make some of those "burgers" think twice.

Want to stop the break ins? Make use of the Castle laws in Michigan and gut the next home intruder with a 12 gauge. I guarantee a few high profile castle law cases where the intruder was separated from their internal organs via directed projectiles will make some of the burgers think twice about kicking a door in. That or it'll make them start carrying weapons and shooting on sight.

I guess the bubble has burst.

Look at what is happening in Lansing with the state legislature - they are proposing to cut all local government revenue sharing funds. That money is used to directly fund police officers. If it gets cut, then police layoffs will follow. Think you had trouble getting a prompt response now?

Enough is Enough, I hope law enforcement gets off of there butts and start doing something about all of these burglaries. I am a victim from a few weeks back. I will say this, I had a dog in the house and had every single window and door locked. These punks decided to take a hammer and smash in my sliding door. My point is these people will stop at nothing to take what they want. If the police would actually investigate these burglaries they might catch the guys doing it. The police didn't try to get finger prints or bring dogs to trace. They basically didn't care, in fact the police officer was very rude to my girlfriend and her parents. I am very disappointed in law enforcement in this area, and I think people should start speaking out.

This is why I set my alarm before I leave for work each day. There are more and more break-ins with the economy in the tank.
