Ypsilanti police investigate several residential break-in reports

By Steve Pepple

Ypsilanti police investigated several reports of burglaries on Friday, according to a crime summary.

A resident reported his home in the 200 block of South Adams Street had been broken into the previous day and a small amount of money was taken. The resident told police he had been the victim of several home invasions and had set up surveillance cameras. Police said there is a possible suspect and the investigation is continuing.

A caretaker of a home in the 1200 block of Pearl Street reported the residence was ransacked and electronic gear was possibly stolen, according to the crime summary.

A resident reported rent money, a cell phone and other items were stolen from his apartment in the 1400 block Leforge. The victim told police he left his apartment during the late afternoon on Thursday and returned early in the morning Friday to find his deadbolt loose and the door ajar.

A homeowner reported someone tried to pry open a window on her house in the 300 block of Middle Drive at about 3 a.m. Friday but was scared off when her dog began barking, according to the crime summary.

Yes please, stop "reporting" on Ypsi. Some of us care about the future of this city and we hate to see the ways in which you represent us. You don't want to pay anyone to actually cover what is happening here, so you pull stuff off the crime blotter. Its unethical, unprofessional, and comes pretty close to racial and class profiling. Please pay good journalists like Tom Perkins (who always does an EXCELLENT job covering Ypsi) to up his coverage, or simply stop writing about us. Can anyone lead me to a better source for news on Ypsi? This is just frustrating...

All Officers/Police investigate 24/7. The Officers we have, have their hands full. (over full) Their calls are not only break-ins. Fights, Gun shots, they often stage for HVA and the Fire Departments. They are even called from out of state to check the welfare of friends and family menbers. Many calls from people that someone is trying to kill themselves. It just goes on and on. The dispatch folks are very busy also. (and excellent) If one doesn't like the little they read here, get a Police scanner. The calls that really tick me off are ones like, can't control my 10 or 13 year old, (whoop butt) parents need to be pro-active. I have nothing but praise for everyone that cares and gives their all for citizen safety, health and life.

once again - facebook is way ahead and way more accurate that Cover it well, or don't cover it. Covering our crime blotter with a good news story about a church subsidizing gas purchases is um...not news

Ypsilanti has a lot of A2 residence living here now, I know I'm one. I still own houses in the A2 area, and I just find it more economic to live here and rent the A2 houses. I grew up there, and have many friends who still live there, so A2 news should flow into Ypsilanti, and it should have the same respectful writing as anywhere else. Maybe A2,com should report the unemployment rate in Ypsilanti, do to corporations just pulling out and leaving the city to rot, after they used and abused the good citizens of Ypsilanti. The federal government should have a law about this kind of corporate behavior. Oh, I just remembered that it's the corporations who are running the show now. Gosh, I wonder how that happened??...

I don't know what's worse, the fact that let's its writers copy and paste from the crime blotter and call it an original work or that they consider this a front page headline. Either way, yor coverage of news in Ypsilanti is making me miss the a2 news.
