A Highland man was arraigned in court Saturday for his role in at least two larcenies from cars, and larcenies from items in an attached garage, in the Fox Chase and Willow Pond subdivisions according to White Lake Township Police.
The report states that Highland resident Michael Robert Brown, 21, was arrested Nov. 15 after police received a tip that one of the stolen GPS units from a car on Dillon in White Lake was pawned at a local shop.
Lt. Don Nankervis said Det. Brad Connell and Det. Jim Bowie, with the Highland Substation, were able to trace the GPS unit back to Brown.
During their investigation, and subsequent questioning of Brown, the detectives located more items reported missing from Fox Chase.
Brown was arraigned Saturday on charges of first degree home invasion (for entering an attached garage), a 20 year felony, and larceny from auto, a 5 year felony. Brown also received a charge of being in possession of a financial transaction without permission because he had credit cards from a wallet that was taken, the report states.
Brown's bond was set at $50,000 cash, and he remains in Oakland County Jail according to police.
