DEARBORN — The 20-year-old man arrested for allegedly stealing items from multiple vehicles has been bound over for trial in the Wayne County Circuit Court.

Joshua Danial Trezil appeared for a preliminary examination of the evidence against him before Judge Mark Somers June 13 but waived his right to the exam.

Trezil will appear in Circuit Court for an arraignment Friday and bond was continued at $100,000 cash by Somers.

Trezil is charged with three counts of conspiracy to commit larceny from a vehicle and one count each of conspiracy to commit breaking and entering, possession of burglary tools, receiving and concealing stolen property, conspiracy to commit larceny from a building, felony firearm, felon in possession of a firearm, and weapons offense possession of a Taser.

He also is charged as a habitual offender third offense. The habitual charge, which increases the maximum penalties by 1.5 times, is due to prior convictions in Circuit Court for delivering and manufacturing marijuana in 2012 and breaking and entering a vehicle to steal property and possession of a controlled substance in 2013.

In both of those cases, Trezil was given probation and sentenced to community service after pleading guilty.

According to police reports, about 1 a.m. June 4 police received 911 calls to report two suspicious individuals in the area of Vassar and Penn. Police responded to the scene and located Trezil and a second suspect, a juvenile male.

The two were stopped by police and were found carrying property that was reported stolen from a nearby garage and several vehicles in the area. Both suspects were arrested and Trezil was transported to the police department while the juvenile was taken to the Wayne County Youth Home.

Police Sgt. Gary Mann said the juvenile has been charged with unlawful entry of a motor vehicle and breaking and entering a garage.

Police also executed a search warrant at one suspect’s home and recovered several items of stolen property. They also recovered a firearm and stun gun in the house during the search, leading to the felony charges.

Following the arrests Police Chief Ronald Haddad thanked the residents for reporting suspicious activity.

“Due to the vigilance of concerned citizens and the rapid response of the police, two habitual serial criminals who have adversely impacted the security of the community have been removed from the streets,” Haddad said.
