Several Cars Have Windows Shattered, Items Taken in Highland
The following information was supplied by the Highland Oakland County Sheriff Substation. Arrests and charges do not indicate convictions.
At least 10 cars on Foxgrove and Elkridge in Highland Township were broken into sometime between Oct. 4 and Oct. 5. according to reports filed with the Oakland County Sheriff's Highland Substation.
The reports all state that sometime during the night, an unknown person or persons broke out a window of a locked vehicle and took items from inside the car.
Items taken from the cars include purses, wallets, cellphones, laptops, GPS systems, cash and other electronics.
The incidents are similar to a rash of break-ins from White Lake, though deputies with the substation said they don't know if the incidents from both communities are related.
On Wednesday, White Lake Police told White Lake-Highland Patch that it's highly unusual for people to shatter car windows in order to break into cars.
There are no suspects at this time, and the incidents remain under investigation.
Money taken from church
Deputies were called to Highland Congressional Church after church members reported a break-in.
According to the report, the incident happened sometime between midnight and 7:45 a.m. on Oct. 8.
The report states that someone pried open the door to the church office and rummaged through the desk and cabinets. One member told police that a jar with money near the copy machine was missing.
A deputy noted in the report that the emergency exit door was ajar when he arrived on the scene.
There are no suspects at this time, and the incident remains under investigation.
