The Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office reported the following details to Lodi Twp:
On June 1, a Collaboration Deputy responded to the 2700 Block of Robal Court for a report of identity theft. The complainant reported that an unknown suspect(s) opened loans totaling $7,000. It is unknown and unclear how the suspect(s) obtained the information needed to get a loan and have the money deposited to their fake bank account.
On June 5, a Collaboration Deputy responded to the 2700 Block of S. Wagner Road for a report of fraud. The victim reported that she mailed a check for $44 to a business but later learned from her bank that the check was cashed for $9,800. It is believed that the check was intercepted at the post office and then “doctored,” resulting in the fraud. The incident has been turned over to the Postmaster General.
On June 8, a Collaboration Deputy responded to the 2800 Block of S. Wagner Road for a report of a theft from an automobile. Loose change and a victim’s wallet were taken from the vehicle. Suspects were identified, and the case is pending the prosecutor’s office review.
On June 20, a Collaboration Deputy responded to the 4900 Block of Ann Arbor-Saline Road for a report of a home invasion. An unknown suspect entered an unlocked garage overnight and stole a child’s bicycle. Home surveillance captured the incident, but the suspect's face could not be identified due to low light.
