Three separate reports about car thefts were made in Dearborn over the last week–all of them on Aug. 18 or 19, according to Dearborn police.
A Saline resident and Ford Motor Company employee reported that between 12-5 p.m. Aug. 18, his 2001 Dodge Intrepid was stolen from the parking lot of the Ford offices at 6000 Mercury Drive.
The man said that his car was parked in the lot outside of the offices, and when he returned at 5 p.m., the car was gone. There was nothing significant inside, the car owner said, and it was taken without the keys, which were still in his possession.
A second vehicle theft was reported last week on the 10000 block of Mercier Ave. A 2000 Ford Cube owner who resides in a different part of Dearborn said he left his van in a parking lot at 1 p.m. Aug. 18. When he returned just before noon the next day, the van was gone.
There was no broken glass at the scene and the owner still had the original set of keys.
The third reported theft ended more positively for a resident of the 7800 block of Hartwell. According to the owner, he parked his nearly brand new 2011 Ford Explorer on Morross Street at 1 a.m. Aug. 19. At 11 a.m., the SUV was gone.
Dearborn police observed broken glass at the scene.
Later that day, police were notified that the vehicle was found in Detroit near Westfield and Cheyenne and impounded at 6:30 a.m. that morning. The tires and rims had been removed, and the rear driver's side window had been smashed. The ignition appeared to be intact, and the owner was notified that his SUV had been found.
