WARREN — A 22-year-old Warren man faces charges of resisting arrest and illegal entry after he was found hiding in a garage by officers responding to a break-in in progress in the 32000 block of Meadowbrook March 9.
According to Warren Police Lt. Heidi Metz, Ronald Vance was arrested in the garage of a home near Hoover and Chicago at about 4 a.m.
“Dispatch said an elderly female had just had the front door kicked in and that the suspect had fled,” Metz said. “She heard somebody kicking at her front door and picked up the phone. As soon as the door busted open, she was on the line with 911.”
Responding officers reportedly made contact with another resident on Meadowbrook, who told them someone also tried to break into his home. The resident told officers he went outside, found his garage door open and observed someone standing next to his car.
One of the responding officers reportedly heard movement in the garage as he was speaking with the second resident.
Vance was arrested at the scene, held in the Warren jail and eventually arraigned before Judge Dean Ausilio in the 37th District Court March 11 on two counts of breaking and entering/illegal entry, a 90-day misdemeanor, and resisting and obstructing police, a two-year felony.
No one was injured and nothing was taken in the alleged break-ins.
Vance requested court-appointed legal counsel at his arraignment and was scheduled to be back in court for a preliminary examination at 8:45 a.m. March 19.
He remained held in the Macomb County Jail on a $2,000 cash or surety bond at press time.
