Sheriff's deputies arrest three men for Monday home invasions

By Kyle Feldscher

Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested three men involved in two home invasions Monday, including two who were walking down the sidewalk with stolen TVs.

Sheriff’s office spokesman Derrick Jackson said two of the men were arrested after a home invasion at an apartment in the 200 block of Stevens Drive in Ypsilanti Township. The other man was arrested following a break-in at about 9:15 p.m. in the 80 block of Carriage Way in Ypsilanti Township.

Jackson released a few details on the Stevens Drive home invasion Monday afternoon. In a statement Monday night, Jackson said police were dispatched at 4:15 p.m. to the scene.

The woman who lived there said a man broke into the apartment through a window and fled when he saw her, Jackson said. Police responded to the area and were told two other apartments in the complex had been broken into as well.

The search spread into the Maplewood Apartments, where a deputy noticed two men carrying TVs while walking on the sidewalk, Jackson said. The men dropped the TVs and began running away from the deputy toward other deputies in the area.

The Ypsilanti Police Department's K-9 unit also responded to the area to assist in the search, according to police.

Both men, ages 17 and 18, were arrested and are expected to be arraigned on home invasion charges Tuesday. They are expected to be charged in all three break-ins, Jackson said.

The third man arrested Monday night also led police on a short chase before he was captured.

Deputies responded to the 80 block of Carriage Way after a witness called to report a man going into his neighbors’ house and carrying out items, Jackson said.

When deputies got to the home, an intruder could be heard inside the house, Jackson said. Deputies chased him out of the house and subsequently lost sight of him as he ran from the area.

Deputies searched the area and found a computer monitor on the ground a couple of houses away, Jackson said. Deputies continued their search and found the man near some houses not far from the computer monitor, he said.

The man is on parole for armed robbery and has a history of assault with intent to rob while armed, Jackson said.

Jackson did not release the men’s names because they have not been arraigned on home invasion charges.

It's great to see police officers doing good police work instead of giving tickets for 10 over!

It's probably safe to say the two guys strolling down the sidewalk cradling televisions in their arms are different guys than whoever broke into another Ypsilanti house, took the keys to the car outside, and stole the car.

Nice job. Hopefully AAPD can learn a thing or two from this.

Unfortunately, they've all been laid off.

You can run, and you can hide, but the long arm of the law will get you...and unlike these fools, even if you have a brain.
