Laptop, iPod among items stolen from vehicle parked at Secretary of State's office
A trip to the Secretary of State’s office can be a hassle on occasion, but, for two visitors to the Ypsilanti Township office, a visit on Tuesday proved to be downright costly.
The man and woman parked their car in the lot in front of the Secretary of State’s office at 2720 Washtenaw Ave. in Ypsilanti Township, deputies with the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office said in a media release. At 3:30 p.m., deputies were dispatched to that location because the car was broken into while the couple was inside.
Someone broke a window on the vehicle and stole a backpack and a purse, deputies said. Inside the bags were a laptop, iPod, ear buds, calculator and schoolbooks.
No suspect information was available Wednesday afternoon.
Anyone with information on this incident is encouraged to call the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office anonymous tip line at 734-973-7711 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK UP (773-2587).
