Dearborn police are asking for residents' help in identifying a suspect in a larceny that took place Jan. 13, at the CVS Pharmacy on Outer Drive.

The suspect can be seen on security cameras entering the store, grabbing several items and concealing them in his jacket, before quickly proceeding to the exit with the items still concealed.

The man allegedly left the store around 3 p.m. without paying for the merchandise, worth more than $200, according to the report.

The suspect was described as a 45-55 year old, light-skinned black male, approximately 5’10, with a thin build. 

He was last seen wearing a long, olive green trench coat, black hat and thick black glasses. In fact, this is the third time the man has committed a larceny at the store, wearing the same olive green trench coat.

“Any assistance in identifying this suspect would be greatly appreciated," said Dearborn Police Chief Ronald Haddad. "Community awareness and public assistance will be necessary to apprehend this criminal.”

If you or someone you know has any information that may help identify the suspect involved in this incident, please call the Dearborn Police Tip Line at (313) 943-3012.

Wow, Linda. Could you try to conceal your prejudice or at least your full name (many Dearborn residents connect on this forum…)? Additionally, your comment is irrelevant to the post since there is no way to know whether the suspect lives in Dearborn.

It's a shame. Dearborn residents are not the ones committing these crimes... But you're not allowed to say it. :'(

Linda there is an article here on Patch about poverty moving to the suburbs. Also, when you sell your house remember every time you say or publish something like you just did you lower your property values. There is more crime in highly populated areas than in rural, but it still exists. We lived in South Lyon and I was afraid to drive on I-96 because someone was shooting at cars along I-96. There is more crime in other cities like Canton even in the past decade. There is no easy solution but economic conditions do affect crime.

Well, Detroit has one of the highest crime rates in the NATION, and Dearborn is right next door... So...

I don't think "robbery" is the correct term here. It's really shoplifting.

Luther's Fan January 24, 2014 at 06:33 am "In fact, this is the third time the man has committed a larceny at the store, wearing the same olive green trench coat." And the reason we are not calling police when he enters the store then is ....??? And I understand Linda's comment. She is simply saying what many "political correcties" won't. The fact is there is no one left in Detroit to rob so the thugs are moving out farther. Many of the criminal caught in the last year were from the D.

Look...I am sick and tired of the first thing out of everyone's mouth is " your prejudice" ---ENOUGH already! Stop it ....you are the problem! We ARE being overrun by Low life's, criminals, and thieves. And some of them are black. Wow, can you believe i just said that ? And you know what... some of them live in Dearborn !

Luther's statement is backed up elsewhere in Patch, the one that ranks the safest cities in Michigan. All the cities around Detroit, including Dearborn, are not exactly at the top of the safety list. Detroit is near the bottom, 100 out of 101. Dearborn is 69. Crooks know that most Detroit folk have followed Anthony's advice, and are armed. They don't want to be shot, so go for the easy pickings in the neighboring communities. Sure, this is only shoplifting, but if he had tried it in Detroit, do you think he would have made it alive out the door? Don't think so.....Detroit shopkeepers are good shots..

Lee, some of us here in Dearborn are 2nd Amendment believers and are well armed. Sad though, this is not the Dearborn I knew 50 years ago. Even the schools (especially high schools) are very poor now.
Michael D. Albano January 25, 2014 at 01:24 PM
When communities implode, and have high poverty, extremely poor education, and no hope of a decent future, then residents flee in droves, which all impacts neighboring communities like Dearborn. Criminals know that you go where the opportunity is, and it is not rocket science to know that most crimes committed in Dearborn are committed by non-residents, and every police officer, including Chief Haddad will tell you this.
