The suspects were driving a stolen Caravan and were trying to steal a 2000 Dodge Intrepid, prying off the ignition switch, Dearborn police told Motor City Muckraker this morning.
Police arrested the men last week when they crossed into Dearborn with the Caravan, which was stolen in Detroit on Oct. 24.
But there was little police could do when DPD wouldn’t pick up the suspects, who were found with break-in tools.
Dearborn police said they’ve seized the Caravan to get fingerprints to determine whether suspects were involved in other crimes in the Detroit suburb.
We are awaiting a response from DPD.
