Officers arrested her on Nov. 5 at the Comerica Bank branch at 3910 Telegraph Road, after bank employees alerted them to a suspicious woman that tried to pass a check.
She was arrested without incident and remained at the Oakland County Jail on $10,000 bond Friday, records show.
Bloomfield Township Police officers arrested a man who allegedly exposed himself to people while slowly driving through The Bloomfield Town Square Plaza last week. Two separate shoppers reported seeing a man masturbating while driving around the parking lot near the intersection of Telegraph and Square Lake roads on Nov. 3, reports said. Officers located the vehicle and arrested the man without incident.
He was processed and released pending formal charges. The incident remains under investigation and further details were unavailable.
Malicious Destruction of Property
A resident of the Fox Hills Condominiums reported that three of tires on her vehicle were slashed on Nov. 1, police reports said. It was unclear when the damage occurred and there are no suspects.
Bloomfield Township police officers also responded to the condominiums in the 600 block of E. Fox Hills Dr. last week after multiple vehicles were damaged in catalytic converter thefts. No suspect information is available.
In a separate incident on Nov. 5, officers on night patrol responded to the Dollar Tree at 2215 Telegraph Road after a citizen reported seeing it smashed as they drove by. The officers determined no one gained entry to the store and store employees later confirmed nothing was stolen, police reports said. It is unknown if the damage was intentional or accidental.
Anyone with information on any of the incidents listed here should call the department at 248-433-7752.
A resident from the 100 block of Hickory Grove Rd. went to the Bloomfield Hills Department of Public Safety on Nov. 1 to report nearly $2,800 of computer hardware purchases to an unauthorized bank account in her name, reports said. The woman said she discovered that day that the merchandise was ordered from an account she never established. She also learned she had been denied a credit card she never asked for, and that her bank was prepared to send a Western Union transfer of $750 to a person she didn’t know, reports said.
The fraudulent activity began on Oct. 23, but further details about how her information was compromised was unavailable. The woman cancelled all the transactions and the investigation is ongoing.
