Deputies with the Oakland County Sheriff's Office Highland Substation responded to an alarm just after midnight, Feb. 24, at a local party store.
According to the report, when police arrived the clerk at the store on the 1000 block of Milford Road told police a person entered the store and grabbed a number of lottery tickets. The suspect then ran from the store.
A K-9 unit was called in to track the suspect, and tracked the persons trail for 45 minutes before losing the track, the report states.
Evidence was collected at the scene, and the incident remains under investigation.
A breaking and entering was reported later that same day at 3:45 a.m. at another store on Duck Lake Road in Highland.
The report states that a paper delivery person came to deliver the paper and found the glass front door of the store broken out.
Deputies checked the building, the report states, and did not find anyone in the store.
The storeowner also checked the area, and told deputies that a large number of lottery tickets were missing.
Evidence was collected at the scene and this, too, remains under investigation. It's possible the two incidents are related, according to officials.
