4 men attempt to take snowblower from Ypsilanti man's yard

By Kyle Feldscher

Ypsilanti police officers responded Wednesday to a report of four unknown men attempting to steal a snow blower from the front yard of a man’s home, according to police.

Police said investigators arrived at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday to the 800 block of Harriet Street after the man reported the attempted theft.

It was the second time this man was a victim of a crime within two days, police reported.

On Monday, someone entered a vacant house the man was working on, police said. The back door to that home was kicked in and tools and a laptop computer were reported stolen.

It’s unknown what time that break-in occurred and police did not release the location of that home.

At this point, suspect descriptions are brief and police still are investigating both incidents. Anyone with information on the incidents is encouraged to call the Ypsilanti police at 734-483-9510.

The sad part is if they would have gotten away with it they would not have used it to make money by snow blowing. They would have sold it for scrap.
