A Tyrone Township man reported that between the hours of 9:30 p.m. on August 24 and 8:30 a.m. on August 25, a barn on the 8000 block of Linden Road was broken into, according to a report from the Livingston County Sheriff’s Department.

Resident reports prescriptions, other items, taken from unlocked car

A Fenton police officer was dispatched to the 100 block of Georgetown Parkway at approximately 10 a.m. on Sunday, for a report of items stolen from a vehicle, said Chief of Police Rick Aro. A 28-year-old Fenton man told police he parked his 2000 Chevrolet Malibu in front of his apartment at approximately 10 p.m. Saturday. When he returned to the car the next day, he discovered several items missing, the police report said.

The resident reported a large speaker, various hand tools, an Oxycodone prescription containing 120 tablets and 15 Valium tablets, along with an undetermined amount of cash was taken from his unlocked car, Aro said.

There are no suspects, Aro said, and the matter is open pending more investigation.

Stolen car reported Saturday

A 58-year-old Fenton woman reported her 2003 Pontiac Grand Am missing on Saturday, at approximately 6:45 a.m., police said.

An officer was dispatched to the 100 block of Georgetown Parkway, where the woman said she last saw her vehicle around 7 p.m. on Friday, when she left it parked for the evening.

The resident told police she had no idea what happened to her car. In addition, she reported there was a spare set of keys in the center console of the vehicle, Aro said. There were no signs of forced entry to the vehicle, and it might have been left unlocked, he added.

The vehicle, forest green in color, has been entered into the Law Enforcement Information Network (LEIN) as stolen, the police chief said. There are no suspects at this time.

Three pairs of sunglasses reported missing 

At 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, a resident in the 700 block of Worchester Drive, Fenton, called to report a break-in and larceny from a detached garage,  Aro said.

The 46-year-old Fenton resident said the vehicle, a gray 2010 Chevrolet van, was parked in the garage around 9 p.m. Saturday. The next day, three pairs of sunglasses were missing from the vehicle, the police report said.

The van wasn't locked, but the garage was secured, the resident told police. There were no signs of forced entry to the garage or the vehicle, Aro said.

Stolen were a pair of Maui sunglasses, gray and black, valued at $300; and two pairs of Oakley sunglasses, worth $350 and $400, he said. There are no suspects.

Fenton man a suspect in fraud complaint

The Chelsea Police Department responded to a complaint of fraud near the 700 block of W. Industrial Drive on Aug. 23.

According to police, a local business tried to cash a check that had been written for more than $2,600. The check was denied due to lack of sufficient funds. Attempts to contact the suspect, a 39-year-old Fenton man, have been unsuccessful.

Thanks for putting the word out.. We are watching the area for anything alarming! Jason actually did a report on my husband a couple months back in the local hero section, local man rescues a cat stuck in a tree in fowlerville!! We recently moved to the area its only been 7 months.. Moved from the city to the country to get away from the robberies and break-ins.. It could have been worse. They could have came to the house instead. Thankful they didn't! Thanks again, from the 8000 block of Linden rd.

I got news for you, there's a little girl who is the daughter of a friend of mine named Crista who has a criminal record a mile long, she started acting out in grade school. I GUARANTEE you that she's responsible for all the thefts of easily portable items in the Fenton, Holly, and township areas surrounding. She's a heroin addict and also has a warrant out for her arrest in Fenton. Her parents are harboring her out in Rose Township, and they are clueless!
