Tyler Oaks, 20, of Farmington Hills, and Leneal Whitehead, 21, of Detroit, were arraigned Wednesday on charges of second degree breaking and entering—a 15-year felony—after being arrested in White Lake.
According to a report filed with the White Lake Police Department, the two men were arrested Monday after police responded to a report of a home invasion on the 1000 block of Teakwood in White Lake.
The report states that Oaks and Whitehead were apprehended as they were exiting the home through a broken back door.
Lt. Don Nankervis said a neighbor called police after seeing the two men enter the home. The neighbor told police that he called the homeowners, who were on vacation, and confirmed that the men were not supposed to be there.
The report states that police found several televisions stacked near the back door along with some jewelry. It also looked like the home had been ransacked.
Nankervis said the department is very grateful to the neighbor who called. "We need more people looking out for each other and calling when they see something that looks suspicious."
Oaks was given a $10,000 cash bond, and Whitehead an $8,000 cash bond.
