Crime Report: Cash, Cologne, Cheese Stolen from Dearborn Market

The following information was supplied by the Dearborn Police Department. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.

A thief must have been having an odd feast after breaking into and stealing from a Dearborn market over the weekend.

According to a report, a break-in at the on Warren Avenue early Saturday morning resulted in the theft of $7,000 in cash and checks from the register, an unknown number of phone cards, several bottles of Jordache cologne, five cooler shelves' worth of cheese, 20-30 bags of rice, and an undetermined number of glass jars containing tomato paste.

Dearborn police were called to the scene around 7:45 a.m. Saturday morning by a man who identified himself as the cousin of the store's owner. He told police that he had arrived to park several cars he was selling in the lot when he noticed that the glass panes of the front door had been broken out.

Police investigated and found that a brick had been thrown through the glass, but the store's alarm had not been tripped because the perpetrator had not actually opened the door.

The owner arrived and confirmed that multiple items were stolen since he had left the store at 3 a.m. that morning. The store was in disarray and the cash register had been damaged and emptied. A check of the surveillance cameras showed that someone had damaged those, too, as well as taken the tapes inside.

The owner was unsure of exactly how many phone cards, or how much food was taken from his store.
