A Dearborn resident’s home was ransacked and stolen from while he was away, according to Dearborn police reports.
The owner of a home on the 7122 block of Payne called police at 8:30 p.m. on Feb. 5 to report that his home had been broken into. The resident had not been home since 9 p.m. the previous day. When he returned home and saw the rear door ajar and the house in disarray, he immediately called police.
Police officers observed a set of tire tracks leading from the north alley to the back door of the home, as well as a broken latch on the back door, indicating forced entry. The house was ransacked, with shelves left open and items all over the floor.
Stolen items included two televisions, a laptop, a Sony PlayStation 3 and video games, $100 cash and a cell phone. Additionally, police found that around 75 feet of copper pipe had been cut from the basement plumbing.
The homeowner stated that he lived alone, and that no one other than his family knew he was going to be away that evening.
Police were unable to identify any possible suspects or suspect vehicles.
