The Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Department reported the following descriptions to Dexter Twp:

On May 1, Deputies responded to the 6100 block of Dexter-Pinckney Road for an Indecent Exposure call. The complainant advised Deputies that an unknown male was observed in the parking lot for several minutes. The subject then approached the complainant and engaged in conversation. During the conversation, the complainant noticed that the male’s genitals were exposed. The subject then followed another female in the parking lot and made inappropriate gestures. Deputies obtained images of the suspect and sent them to the Michigan State Police for further analysis. Deputies developed a possible suspect and conducted an interview. The subject denied the allegations and charges are pending with the Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s Office.

On May 27, Deputies contacted the victim of check fraud in the 9500 block of Horseshoe Bend. The victim reported placing a check in the mail for payment of services. When the company reported that they had not received payment, the victim contacted their financial institution and learned that the check had been altered and deposited in an ATM. The victim reported being defrauded of over $12, 000. Deputies have the name of a potential suspect. However, additional information is needed.

On May 30, Deputies responded to the intersection of Dexter Townhall and Fleming for a rollover crash. Deputies arrived to find the driver unresponsive and the odor of intoxicants emanating from his person. Deputies were able to identify the driver through a family member and the driver was taken to the hospital for medical treatment. Deputies obtained a search warrant for the driver’s blood and are currently awaiting results for potential drunk driving charges.
