Tips from Dearborn residents local businesses helped Dearborn police close a string of area home invasion cases.
Rashaad Taylor, 21, of Detroit was charged with two counts of second-degree home invasion, felony firearm and a felony larceny of a firearm in connection to a string of home break-ins. He was arraigned on March 8 and is being held on $10,000 bond, The Press & Guide reports.
He’s suspected in three home invasion – one on March 3 and two on March 7 – and information gleaned from the victims and others in the area prompted them to place Taylor under surveillance.
The video showed Taylor with a computer that was later confirmed to be taken from one of the break-ins.
“With the help from of our business community and residents we were able to quickly identify the suspect and make an arrest,” Dearborn Police Chief Ronald Haddad said in a statement. “A dangerous career criminal cannot victimize the community any longer.
