The Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office reported the following details to Webster Twp:
On July 4th, Deputies were dispatched to the 6400 block of North Territorial Road for a larceny complaint. The victim said they hosted a large party a week before and secured their residence to prevent anyone from entering. They allowed a family member inside to use the restroom and discovered two additional subjects inside the residence who did not have permission to be there. The subjects were escorted out of the residence without incident. The following day, the victim discovered several hundred dollars and a jewelry box missing from the residence. The jewelry had previously been appraised and was estimated to be valued at over $100,000. The victim then began receiving emails indicating that their credit cards were attempting to be used to make thousands of dollars in purchases.
Detectives were assigned to further the investigation and have completed search warrants and subpoenas for bank records. The identity of the suspects is known. However, no charges have been filed while the investigation continues.
