Police arrested three people in connection to the burglary of a residential garage in broad daylight last week.
All three suspects were charged with breaking and entering, a 10-year felony. Brian Faust, 18, of Ferndale was arraigned in Ferndale 43rd District Court on Aug. 15 by Magistrate James Brennan, who set bond at $5,000 cash or surety. Dieter Buchholz, 22, of Berkley and Jennifer Allor, 20, of Flint — who were caught in Warren three days after Faust was arrested at his home — were arraigned on Aug. 16 and given bond of $10,000 cash or surety. The three suspects are scheduled to appear in Ferndale District Court again for a pre-exam conference Aug. 23 at 1 p.m.
According to Detective Lt. Bill Wilson, at about 8 p.m. on Aug. 13, Ferndale officers investigated a breaking and entering that had occurred in the 400 block of East Cambourne Street. They met with the resident, who reported that several items — including a snow blower, an air compressor and a chainsaw — had been stolen from his garage.
The resident had been away from his home during the day, Wilson said, and when he returned, his neighbor told him that there were some people removing items from his garage around 10:30 a.m. that morning. The neighbor said that he saw Faust, Allor and Buchholz in the garage and asked them what they were doing. Allor knew the name of one of the residents of the home and said that she had permission to borrow some tools to fix a flat tire.
The neighbor was temporarily satisfied with her explanation, Wilson said, so he did not call the police right away. However, when the suspects continued removing more items from the garage, the neighbor documented their activity with photos and videos. He also wrote down the license plate number of the pickup truck that they were driving.
When Ferndale officers arrived, they used the neighbor’s information to identify the suspects, Wilson said. They then went to another house in the city, where the truck was registered to Faust. The suspect was at home, and he was placed under arrest.
Allor and Buchholz, however, remained at large for a few more days. They were eventually arrested on Aug. 16, Wilson said, when Warren police located them at a Meijer store in that city. According to Wilson, Faust and Buchholz are currently on probation, and all three suspects have prior criminal records.
