Alarm scares off intruder during home invasion
An intruder broke into an Ypsilanti Township home Tuesday but apparently left without taking anything after an alarm scared him off, according to deputies.
The Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the home invasion that occurred at 8:15 a.m. Tuesday in the 300 block of Hillcrest Boulevard. According to investigators, a residential burglary alarm reported the break-in in progress.
When deputies arrived at the home, the intruder was gone but investigation revealed the home was broken into via a pried open window.
However, nothing was reported stolen as of Wednesday morning. Deputies attributed this to the alarm going off and possibly scaring the suspect.
