Arrests Halt Rash of Vehicle Crimes in Woods

police arrested three St. Clair Shores residents June 26 they suspect are involved to the spree of stolen cars and larcenies from vehicles near Hollywood and Marter.

The men were spotted about 4:30 a.m. walking on Blairmoor between Charlevoix and Goethe. They turned around and began walking in the opposite direction when a patrol officer turned onto the street, according to a report.

When the officer stopped them to find out where they were going, their stories were inconsistent and they could not provide an address or specific information. One of the men had a women's purse, which was later discovered to belong to a woman in St. Clair Shores whose car was stolen.

The men had other stolen goods in their possession as well, including a valet key used to steal a car. 

Woods Detective Sgt. Raymond Yonkowski said the spree of crimes involving vehicles near Hollywood and Marter has stopped since their arrest. The cases are still being investigated but there were some similar crimes in St. Clair Shores just outside of the Woods, he said.

St. Clair Shores police are working on the investigation as well, Yonkowski said.
