The trend of east end break-ins in Dearborn continued over the past week, according to Dearborn police reports.
After the new year started off with eight reported home break-ins–almost all of them occurring in east Dearborn–another 10 were reported between Jan. 9-17. Once again, most were reported in the Ford Woods and Hemlock neighborhoods.
In the case of Al-Andalus, police responded to the business at 5:26 a.m. Jan 12 and found that the front window of the business had been smashed. However, the bakery manager found no signs of anything missing.
The break-in at Al-Ameer occurred between 12:30-7 a.m. Jan 10, when the front window was also shattered some time during the night, according to the owner. He found that $150 had been stolen from the register, as well as a meat grinder worth $450.
Details about the other two business break-ins, which were reported Jan. 11 and 16 on the 6500 and 6600 blocks of Greenfield, were not immediately available.
Home break-ins were reported within the past week on Jan. 9 in the 21500 block of Homer; Jan. 12 in the 7300 block of Theisen; Jan. 13 in the 7500 block of Freda and the 7400 block of Indiana; Jan 14 in the 7100 block of Yinger; and Jan 16 in the 1600 block of Wyoming.
Most of the thefts were of electronics, including televisions, video game systems and DVD players.
In the case of a report on the 7400 block of Indiana, the homeowner told police that when she came home around 3 p.m., she noticed things out of place, but nothing missing. The resident told police that a door and window had been opened and her dresser drawer gone through. Also disturbed was a 357 Magnum handgun that had been removed from its case in her closet–but not taken.
