Police Blotter

Lincoln Park
Biker goods lifted from SUV
Several items were taken overnight Monday from a 2002 Ford Explorer parked in the 1400 block of Paris.

The owner said she had parked the vehicle in the driveway at 6 p.m. last Sunday and found that the items were gone at 1 p.m. Monday.

Among them were the in-dash stereo, which was valued at $300, a Global Positioning System unit ($200), a motorcycle helmet ($1,300) and two motorcycle leather coats ($800 each).

The driver’s-side front window had been broken out.

Figurines filched from storage unit
A storage unit for an apartment in the 1200 block of Fort Street was burglarized sometime before about 9 a.m. Oct. 17.

A lock and chain had been cut, and thieves made off with two bowling ball bags valued at $25 each and 25 Betty Boop figurines valued at $2,500. The owner told police she has certificates of authenticity for the figurines.

A school document bearing a name was found on the floor of the storage unit.

Window shot caught on video
The front glass door of Free Will Baptist Church, 14755 Goddard, was shot out just after noon Oct. 16.

Video surveillance equipment captured the image of a dark-colored vehicle, possibly a Toyota Camry, turning left off Mulberry into the church lot and driving slowly in front of the church just before the glass was shattered; the car then turned right on Kennebec and drove slowly away.

The video equipment was installed recently because the window has been shot out eight to 10 times in the last six months, church officials told police. It captured the image of a similar vehicle just before the window was broken about 4 a.m. Oct. 5.

Neither image showed a rifle barrel protruding from the car. Police believe a BB pistol held about chest high inside the car may have caused the damage.

Replacement cost for the window is $260 for each incident.

Trailer full of tools goes missing
A construction trailer was taken from a business at 12990 Fort St. overnight Tuesday.

An employee working on a remodeling project there said the trailer was parked for the day about 5 p.m. Monday and that both its doors and its hitch were locked. When he returned Tuesday morning, however, the trailer was gone.

The trailer is valued at $2,500 and contained various construction equipment that still must be listed for police by the company owner.

Theft occurs after friend’s visit
A computer was stolen about 10:30 p.m. Oct. 12 from a shed behind a house in the 11300 block of Polk.

A man who lives with his mother there told police he keeps some recording equipment in the shed. He and a friend went to the store that night and returned 15 minutes later to find the computer missing, along with an air card.

The computer has a tracking device that its owner said he would ask the selling company to activate. Police declined to release the value of the stolen items.

Argument results in hospital trip, minor’s arrest
A local man was arrested for underage drinking just after 1 a.m. last Sunday after he struck a woman who was walking along northbound Fort Street near Marian Drive.

The man said he was in the east lane of Fort when he saw a vehicle on the side of the road with its hazard lights on. He then changed lanes and said he apparently struck the woman.

The man was unsure whether the woman was in the lane or outside the fog line, but told police he did not cross the fog line. He admitted to drinking a few beers at a friend’s house earlier that night, but said he did not feel intoxicated.

A breath test showed blood-alcohol contents of 0.07 percent and 0.06 percent; a level of 0.08 is considered intoxicated under Michigan law. He was arrested, however, for drinking as a minor and later released to his father.

The woman, a Detroit resident, had been in the car with her boyfriend and began arguing while driving north on Fort at Vreeland Road. The boyfriend told police she got out and began walking north on Fort, saying she intended to walk back home.

The boyfriend said he was driving on the right shoulder of the road with his hazard lights on and was trying to coax her back into his car when he heard glass break and saw his girlfriend fall. She complained of pain in her back and was transported by firefighters to Oakwood Southshore Medical Center.

The driver’s-side mirror was broken on the arrested’s man’s vehicle.

Whither Reggie Dunlop? Man tries to put bounty on hockey players
Police were called about 6:30 p.m. last Sunday to Kennedy Recreation Center, 3101 West Road, on word that a man was asking Trenton hockey players to hit certain other players on the ice during a game.

An employee said the man was offering $40 to Trenton players to hit players on the other team. He showed police a note he had obtained that the man had passed to one of the players.

A telephone number was written on the note, but when police called, it went straight to voice mail.

The man was seen leaving the rink in a white 2002 Jeep with a Michigan license plate.
