Shores investigates suspects in home invasions
February 25, 2013
Shores Public Safety officers believe they might be close to apprehending suspects in a string of home invasions last month that have left residents on edge.
During a Feb. 19 City Council meeting, Public Safety Director John Schulte told officials that earlier in the month, the Shores was able to get assistance from a Macomb-Oakland law enforcement task force to conduct surveillance on two homes in the Grosse Pointes where the suspects are believed to reside. On Feb. 18, he said they executed a search warrant on one of those homes, and at press time, he said they were in the process of analyzing computers, phones and other items recovered from that dwelling. They didn’t recover stolen property during that search, Schulte said.
At least two or three suspects are believed to have been involved in three home invasions in the Shores in January, and some, if not all, of those suspects may have been involved in a pair of home invasions in Grosse Pointe Woods last month, as well. Schulte said Woods investigators recovered shoe prints that matched the ones found at the scene of a Shores home invasion.
Schulte said they’re confident they’ve identified at least two of the suspects in these cases, and are hoping to be able to soon identify others.
“This is a top priority for us,” he said.
At press time, no arrests had yet been made.
Residents are urged to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity in their neighborhoods immediately so that police can investigate. Anyone wishing to report such activity should call (313) 881-5500.
