FARMINGTON HILLS — Farmington Hills police arrested two Detroit residents Nov. 11 for suspected serial involvement in the breaking and entering of numerous businesses across Oakland, Macomb and Wayne counties. 

According to a press release, Romelo Buggs, 23, and Andrea Dawkins, 29, were arraigned at the 47th District Court in Farmington Hills Nov. 12 by Magistrate Michael Sawicky. 

Both will have a preliminary examination at 9:30 a.m. Nov. 20 in front of Judge Marla Parker. A bond of $50,000 cash, or 10%, was set for Buggs. A $50,000 personal bond was given to Dawkins.

A five-count felony for breaking and entering a building with intent, as well as a misdemeanor charge for driving with a suspended license, were authorized by the Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office for Buggs. Dawkins faces a two-county felony arrest warrant charge for breaking and entering a building with intent. 

Credit for the arrest goes to the Farmington Hills Police Department midnight patrol officers, police detectives and the department’s Directed Patrol Unit, Police Chief Jeff King said in a statement. Those units’ alert observations and investigative techniques ultimately led to the arrest of the two individuals who were under investigation by several other law enforcement departments for similar crimes in the tri-county area, King said. 

Anyone with additional information is asked to call the police command desk at (248) 871-2610.
