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

A Dearborn resident's call to police about suspicious activity resulted in the arrest of a man on Tuesday, Sept. 4.

According to a report, a resident of the 13300 block of Colson called police around 10:15 p.m. to report a man riding around on a bicycle in the parking lot of 5050 Schaefer. She told police that the man was looking into cars, and appeared to be checking several door handles.

The woman said she watched as the man then rode up to a Nissan Maxima parked on Colson and entered the vehicle, rummaging around for several minutes.

As the responding officers were talking with the resident, she exclaimed "That's him!" and pointed police toward the man she believed to be stealing from cars.

Officers approached him for questioning, but the man rode away. However, he was quickly stopped and searched. Police found nothing on him, and upon contacting the owner of the car in question, she stated that she could find nothing missing from the vehicle.

However, police arrested the man for unlawful entry of a motor vehicle. He was eventually released, but will be required to appear in the for the pending charges.

If this is the typical criminal activity in Dearborn, and apparently it is as there is nothing else mentioned, the police are doing their job. Detroit would be envious.
