Malicious destruction of property

A Bloomfield Township woman could not get back into her home after a shopping trip because someone put glue into the door lock, police reports said. The woman said she left her home in the 1600 block of Bloomfield Place on the morning of Dec. 22, and spent a few hours shopping. When she returned, she could not get the key into the lock, reports said.

Upon inspection, officers determined that someone injected glue into the door lock. The woman gave officers the name of a possible suspect, and the investigation is ongoing, reports said.

Minors caught drinking at house party

Officers with the Bloomfield Township Police Department broke up a house party and cited multiple minors for alcohol violations last week, according to reports.

Police responded to calls about a possible party with underage drinking in the 1000 block of Lochridge on Dec. 22, and, with the owner's permission, went inside, where they found a large group of teens. Those caught consuming alcohol were cited and released to their parent's custody, reports said. Police also found marijuana and drug paraphernalia inside the residence. Further details were not immediately available.
