Three vehicle break-ins under investigation in Ypsilanti

By Lisa Carolin

Several cars were broken into in the city of Ypsilanti Friday, and the city's police department has no suspects at this time.

All of the break-ins occurred within a 12-hour period Friday beginning just after 1 a.m. when a car was broken into in the 600 block of Rice Street. Several items were stolen.

The next break-in occurred in the 100 block of North Street at 9:30 a.m. Friday. Tools were taken from that vehicle. The third break-in occurred at 10 a.m. Friday morning in the 100 block of North River Street. Loose change was taken from that vehicle.

The Ypsilanti Police Department can't say whether the same person was responsible for all three break-ins. The investigation is continuing.

I agree. The auto owners have to be smart regardless of the location. Lock your cars. How many of these cars were unlocked? Don't leave things out that invite a criminal to break into your car. My car was broken into a couple of years ago in Ann Arbor, but I forgot to lock it and I left a couple of new shopping bags on the front seat. Part of that theft was my fault.

People need to be smart! Don't leave ANY money out, even a few cents, that just tells the perp that there may be more money. Don't leave CDs out. Don't leave chargers or cell phone connectors out. I let my car look kinda trashy to hopefully sway people away. Apparently books aren't an incentive anymore.

Sad, those areas used to be a very nice place to live in Ypsi. YPD will take care of the problem.
