Attempted Break-In
Posted on 11/24/2018
A 50-year-old Plymouth man was arrested this morning around 5:00 am for attempting to break into the Marathon Gas Station located at 39950 Five Mile Rd. in Northville Township. A second suspect, an African American male, wearing all dark clothing is still at large. The attempted break in occurred just before 2:00am. The men tried to break out the glass of the entry doors of the gas station with a hammer. 

Information about the crime was broadcast to area police agencies. A short time later a City of Northville Police Officer observed a vehicle matching the description of the vehicle used in the crime. When the officer tried to stop the vehicle, a short pursuit occurred. The two suspects fled from the vehicle on foot. The 50-year-old man was arrested after he was discovered hiding inside a shed behind a home in the City of Northville. It was later determined that the vehicle had been stolen from an apartment complex in the area of Five Mile Road and Haggerty Road.

The man arrested was recently paroled from the Michigan Department of Corrections (MDOC). He is expected to be turned over to MDOC on Monday, November 26, 2018. This investigation is ongoing. When it is concluded, the facts, evidence and circumstances of the crime will be submitted to the Wayne County Prosecutors Office for a determination of charges. 

The Northville Township Police Department would like to thank our law enforcement partners for their assistance with this investigation.
