HARRISON TOWNSHIP — Two men were arrested Jan. 17 after officials said they broke into several vehicles in Harrison Township.

According to a report from the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were called to the area of Cottrell Road and Jefferson Avenue at 5:45 a.m. in response to a suspicious person.

Sgt. Renee Yax said an unknown individual was observed walking through yards and looking into vehicles with a flashlight.

“The person then got into a vehicle and left,” she stated in the report.

Deputies were able to locate the vehicle as it pulled into the driveway of a home in the area. The driver exited the vehicle and entered the backyard of the home, while a second man inside the vehicle was observed lying down in the front passenger seat. The report states that the owner of the home did not know either of the men and was not expecting anyone.

Inside the vehicle, deputies located a flashlight, gloves, two handguns, a rifle magazine, a wallet, pill bottles, as well as credit cards and identification.

“Several breaking and entering motor vehicle reports were taken in the area,” Yax stated in the report. “Both firearms, the wallet containing a driver’s license and credit card, and the prescription medications were all stolen out of various vehicles in the area (within the last several hours leading up to the arrests).”

A sheriff’s K-9 unit located the driver of the vehicle — identified as Devin Cannon, 27, of Shelby Township — several streets over from where the vehicle was left, the report states. Cannon refused to obey deputies’ commands and resisted arrest before being taken into custody.

Cannon and his accomplice, Kyle Rhodes, 22, of Clinton Township, were then taken to the Macomb County Jail for booking.

The Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office charged Cannon with nine counts, including two counts of receiving and concealing a weapon or firearm; felon in possession of a firearm; felon in possession of ammunition; conspiracy to commit breaking and entering into a vehicle to steal property valued at $1,000 or more, but less than $20,000; stealing a financial transaction device; two counts of possession of a controlled substance; and resisting and obstructing a police officer.

The Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office charged Rhodes with six counts, including two counts of receiving and concealing a weapon or firearm; felon in possession of a firearm; felon in possession of ammunition; and conspiracy to commit breaking and entering into a vehicle to steal property valued at $1,000 or more, but less than $20,000.

Cannon and Rhodes were arraigned Jan. 18 at the 41-B District Court in Clinton Township, where they were each given a $25,000 bond. Both remained behind bars at press time and had not yet obtained legal representation.

Both men will return to court for a probable cause conference on Jan. 30.
