MACOMB TOWNSHIP — On Oct. 29, Macomb County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a home in the 22000 block of Eddy Drive — located near 21 Mile Road and North Avenue — on a report of larceny from a vehicle.

The complainant stated that two handguns had been stolen from his Ford pickup truck, which had been parked in his driveway and left unlocked. The man told the deputies that the theft occurred sometime between 5:30 p.m. on Oct. 28 and 7 a.m. on Oct. 29.

An eight-shot, .45-caliber H & K semi-automatic pistol was taken from his truck, along with a five-shot, .357-caliber Smith & Wesson revolver.

According to Macomb County Sheriff Anthony Wickersham, there have been several recent incidents across the county where people have left their cars unlocked and become victims of crime. In a statement, Wickersham reminded residents to always lock their vehicles when parking them outside of a garage, especially when they contain expensive or dangerous items.

“These are often opportunistic crimes,” he said. “People need to be constantly reminded to remove their valuables and lock their cars whenever they are left unattended.”

Anyone with additional information on the Macomb Township larceny is asked to call the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office at (586) 307-9412.
