ROSEVILLE — Two of three women facing charges for a home invasion in Roseville last month are Detroit police officers.

On Tuesday, April 11, three women allegedly went to the residence and forced entry. Once inside, they “destroyed his home and stole the victim’s property,” according to a press release from the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office.

Brianna Cabano, 29, of Auburn Hills, and Dayna Sears, 21, of Southfield, were both arraigned April 20. Colleen Compton, 29, of Warren, was arraigned April 21. All three were arraigned in the 39th District Court in Roseville by Judge Alyia Hakim.

Cabano and Sears were both identified by the Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office as Detroit police officers. The victim, who has not been named, was also identified as a Detroit police officer by the Prosecutor’s Office.

A spokesperson from the Detroit Police Department said that the two officers are currently suspended with pay, although Chief James White recommended that the Board of Police Commissioners suspend both officers without pay.

All three suspects are facing charges of second-degree home invasion, a 15-year felony; malicious destruction of property between $1,000 and $20,000, a five-year felony; and larceny in a building, a four-year felony.

However, Cabano and Compton are also facing a charge of second-degree home invasion conspiracy, a 15-year felony. Sears is facing a charge of accessory after the fact to a felony, a five-year felony.

Hakim issued all three suspects a $5,000 personal bond. They are scheduled for a preliminary exam hearing at 8:30 a.m. June 14 in front of Judge Kathleen Tocco.

“As prosecutors, it is our duty to hold all individuals accountable for their actions, regardless of their profession or position of authority,” Macomb County Prosecutor Peter Lucido said in a statement. “The crime of home invasion is a serious offense, and the fact that the defendants in this case are police officers only amplifies the severity of their actions.”

Attorney Jonathan Jones represents Sears.

“It’s early in the process. We haven’t had the preliminary exam yet,” Jones said. “We’re still trying to find out what’s going on, and from there, we hope to find a resolution, but it’s very early in the case.”

Camilla Barkovic, who was retained to represent Cabano, declined to comment. Amir Makled, who represents Compton, did not return a request for comment.
