The following information is provided by the Fenton Police Department; an arrest does not necessarily indicate a conviction.

Fenton police ticket three underage drinkers

Three Fenton police cars were dispatched to an apartment in the 3400 block of Arbor Drive at 2:45 a.m. Sunday, for a report of a loud party. Chief of Police Rick Aro said, upon arriving, officers could hear noise from the party from outside the apartment.

Police contacted the homeowner and discovered several subjects who were being loud and drinking, Aro said. While talking with the homeowner, officers noticed three suspected underage drinkers, the report said. The three, a woman and two men, agreed to preliminary breath tests, he said.

After the preliminary breath tests, police found they had been drinking alcohol, Aro said. An 18-year-old woman from Davison and two 20-year-old men from Fenton received citations for drinking alcohol under the age of 21, police said. They were cited and released at the scene.

Owner of Michigan Coin Gallery reports thefts worth more than $2,500

The owner of Michigan Coin Gallery, in the 2000 block of Owen Road, reported a breaking and entering to Fenton police at 4 p.m. on Monday, Aro said. The owner, a 49-year-old Linden man, had locked his store at 3 p.m. on Saturday to leave for some personal business and returned at 3:30 p.m. Monday to find that someone had broken in, the police report said.

Reported stolen were several coins and other valuables, with a value in excess of $2,500, Aro said. Included were two silver dollars, worth $800 and $1,200, along with silver half-dollars valued between $100 and $200, police said.

Officers located the point of entry where a door had been pried open, he said. They were able to secure some evidence from inside the business, and Fenton Police Department detectives continue to investigate, Aro added.

Woman reports items missing from vehicle

A 32-year-old Fenton woman reported items missing from her vehicle after parking it overnight at Lucky’s Steak House in Fenton, said Aro. An officer was dispatched to the 17000 block of Silver Parkway at 12:40 p.m. on Saturday.

The woman left her 2007 Dodge Caravan in the parking lot at 11:30 p.m. Friday after attending a wedding reception, and she told police she believed she locked it. There was no apparent damage to the vehicle, but the owner reported a Hewlett Packard laptop computer, portable DVD player and leather briefcase with some of her work papers, missing, Aro said.

There are no suspects, and there was no sign of forced entry, he said, and the value of the missing items is more than $1,000.
