The Dexter branch of the Washtenaw County sheriff’s office has dealt with half a dozen crimes during the last week.
Electrical wire was stolen from a construction site on the 200 block of Metty Drive Dec. 9. This was taken sometime overnight.
A car was broken into on the 6200 block of Jackson Road Dec. 10. A credit card was stolen from this unlocked car and was taken to the Meijer on Jackson Road. The victim got a call from the credit card company after they became suspicious that the purchases made there were fraudulent. Washtenaw County sheriff’s deputy Sgt. Geoff Fox says that they are in the process of obtaining the store’s security camera footage.
A juvenile stole a package of cigars on the 6900 block of Jackson Road Dec. 12.
A drill and case were stolen from a car on the 100 block of Orange Blossom Drive, Saturday. This happened sometime in the early afternoon. The sheriff’s office has no suspects yet.
A 27-year-old Ypsilanti man was found with his car stopped in the middle of North Territorial Road at 1:55 a.m. Dec. 13. It appears that the man crashed his car into a tree, while driving drunk and attempted to drive away. The car died in the middle of the road, which is when the sheriff’s deputies found him. After failing a field sobriety test, the man was taken to the U of M hospital for a blood test. Deputies are waiting for the results of that test.
A 41-year-old Chelsea woman was found passed out in a car, half way in a private lot and halfway in the road Dec. 14. This was near the corner of North Territorial and Stoffer roads. At 1:26 a.m. deputies woke up the woman, who appeared to be under the influence of a drug. Having failed the field sobriety test, the woman was taken to Chelsea hospital for a blood draw and was then taken to the Washtenaw County Jail. Deputies searched the vehicle and found marijuana. They are currently awaiting test results from a blood draw.
A KTM motorbike was stolen from a garage on the 1400 block of Baker Road, Dec. 15. This was at 1:30 a.m. There are no suspects as of yet.
