ROSEVILLE — Two Roseville residents were arraigned in 39th District Court last week in unrelated cases.

On Aug. 14, Christopher Baldes, 25, was arraigned on multiple burglary charges before Judge Marco Santia. Baldes was arrested Aug. 13 and charged with four counts of home invasion in the first degree, which is a 20-year felony. He also was charged with two counts of unlawful driving away of a motor vehicle — a 5-year felony — and one count of probation violation related to a prior embezzlement charge.

According to a police report, two of the home invasions occurred in the 25000 block of Fern Aug. 7 and Aug. 13; another incident was reported Aug. 13 in the 25000 block of Jeanette Court; and the fourth home invasion was in the 25000 block of Salem Aug. 12.

According to police, the motor vehicles were taken in relation to home invasions in which Baldes found keys in the house. Roseville Deputy Chief Don Glandon said several items were taken during the home invasions.

In another unrelated incident, Roseville police arrested Richard Green at approximately 3:10 a.m. Aug. 14. Officers responded to an alarm at The Smilin’ Dog grooming parlor at 18278 E. 13 Mile and located a damaged window on the side of the building.

Upon investigation, Green was observed inside the building, according to police. He was taken into custody without incident. Later in the day, Green, 24, was charged with one count of burglary and arraigned before Santia.

A $101,000 cash/surety bond was set for Baldes. Bond for Green was set at $20,000 cash/surety.

According to a court spokesperson, both defendants asked for court-appointed attorneys. They had not been appointed yet, but were expected to be appointed either on Friday, Aug. 16, or Monday, Aug 19, after press time.

As of press time, neither Baldes nor Green posted bond, and therefore remained in the Macomb County Jail in Mount Clemens. Both defendants were scheduled to be back in court the morning of Aug. 21 on their charges.
