The Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office reported the following detail to Dexter Twp:
On April 12th, Deputies responded to Silver Lake for a report of two tubers in distress. The caller reported that one of the subjects had fallen off the tube, and the high winds had blown the tube away. The caller further reported that neither subject was wearing a life jacket. Upon arrival, Deputies observed a citizen on a sailboat heading toward the subjects. The citizen was able to provide both subjects with life preservers and then towed them to shore. Both subjects were treated by medical personnel on-scene. A Citizen’s Award has been recommended by the responding Deputy.
On April 20th, Deputies investigated a fraud in the 8400 block of Thurston Road. The victim indicated they received a phone call from who they believed to be Publisher’s Clearing House. The subject on the phone advised the victim they had won a large sum of money and instructed them to send a cashier’s check for $10,000 to pay the taxes. The victim obtained the check and mailed it as instructed. The victim then realized they had been the victim of a scam. Deputies are working to identify a suspect.
