Police Respond to Multiple Bloomfield Twp. Home Invasions Wednesday
Police believe the same individuals struck homes on four streets within a few hours. Residents urged to be vigilant about reporting suspicious vehicles.
Officers with the Bloomfield Township Police Department responded to four home invasion reports Wednesday afternoon that appear to be related. Reports said officers were called to the 1000 Block of Hamilton Drive, the 5000 Block of Inkster Road, the 6000 Block of Colby Lane and the 1000 block of Alexander Drive during daytime hours.
The homeowner on Inkster Road interrupted the crime in progress when they came home and tried to follow the two suspects, who fled in a smaller tan or silver Chrysler vehicle, but lost them, according to reports. Investigators determined the perpetrators entered each home either by smashing the glass to doorwalls, or kicking in doors, report said.
"The public is being asked to be aware of any strange vehicles parked in neighbor driveways and to report any suspicious behavior," a post on the department's Facebook page stated. "Investigators are following up on all leads and the investigation is on-going."
Detailed physical descriptions of the suspects were not immediately available. Anyone with information about any of these incidents is encouraged to call the department at 248-433-7752.
