Ypsilanti teenager charged with burglarizing house in Saline
An Ypsilanti teenager has been charged with home invasion and possessing burglary tools for allegedly breaking intoÂ a home on Saline’s south side Monday.
James Terrance Nunnally, 17, was arraigned on both felony charges Wednesday at the Washtenaw County Jail, where he remains on $15,000 cash bond, court records show.
Saline police arrestedÂ NunnallyÂ and a 16-year-old Ypsilanti boy after responding to a burglary-in-progress call in the 400 block of Marlpool Drive shortly after noon.Â
Both teens attend Lincoln High School, which was out of session that day, Saline Detective Don Lupi said.
The two teens were sitting in a car parked down the street from the home where the break-in occurred and had numerous items that were later determined to be stolen strewn around the vehicle, police reports said.
They allegedly entered the home through a sliding glass door and took several items, including small electronics and jewelry.
The 16-year-old was released to his parents pending formal charges in juvenile court.
Milan police said they also suspect the teens inÂ an attempted burglary of a home on Jefferson Street at about 11:45 a.m. that day. They were scared off by an alert neighbor who called police, reports said.
