Following are highlights from recent police reports:
Suspect arrested after multiple vehicle break-ins reported
A 36-year-old Pontiac man faces multiple felony charges for allegedly breaking into vehicles parked outside the Detroit Skate Club in Bloomfield Township last week, police reports said.
Adrian Elias Trimble was arraigned last Friday on two counts of breaking and entering vehicles on March 1, according to court records. He remained at the Oakland County Jail on $15,000 bond pending a preliminary hearing in 48th District Court in next week.
Bloomfield Township police officers were called to the skate club after two employees reported finding the windows to their separate vehicles parked in the back smashed at about 5:20 p.m., reports said. Cash and a cell phone were reported missing. A cinder block was used to break the windows and no damage estimates were immediately available, reports said.
Officers saw surveillance video from the club's security system and gleaned a good physical description of the perpetrator, reports said. They later observed a man matching that description still nearby the club and arrested him without incident.
The man had the stolen property in his possession, reports said. Court records indicate a public defender was appointed Trimble's case.
It is unclear if Trimble is a suspect in any other recent vehicle break-ins the department is investigating.
Another purse stolen from fitness center lot
A vehicle parked outside Bally's Total Fitness was broken into while the owner worked out last week, police reports said.
Officers responded to the fitness center shortly after 6:30 p.m. Sunday. A window was smashed with an unknown item and a purse was stolen from inside. Police are still investigating two similar break-ins at that parking lot that occurred Feb. 16, police said. Purses with cash, credit cards, gift cards and jewelry were taken in those incidents, which occurred 6-7 p.m.
Police continue to investigate a series of similar reports from L.A. Fitness in the past two months as well. Police said it's unclear if any of the incidents are related but cautioned residents to always remove valuables or at least lock them in the trunk.
Officers responded to three home invasion complaints during the past week, according to reports:
- 700 block of Brockmoor Lane: Officers responded shortly after 11 a.m. Sunday and found the front door was forced open. Nothing was reported stolen. The break-in occurred sometime between 9:45-11:15 a.m.
- 500 block of Newburn Point: Officers responded about 1 p.m. Sunday and found the front door was pried open. Jewelry was stolen. The theft occurred sometime between 9:30 a.m.-1 p.m., reports said.
- 1700 block of St. Johns Court: Officers responded shortly after 5 p.m. Saturday and found the front door was forced open. Jewelry was stolen.
No suspect information was available in any of these incidents. Anyone with information about these incidents can call the department’s investigations division at 248-433-7752.
