A 16-year-old, male Newport juvenile led Monroe County Sheriff’s deputies on a chase through a Detroit Beach neighborhood recently before he was apprehended by deputies and Michigan State Police troopers.
The pursuit began about 10:50 a.m. in the 3300 block of Fourth St. in the subdivision off N. Dixie Hwy. in Frenchtown Township, according to a deputy’s report. The youth was wanted for being a runaway and for escape from custody. Several deputies went to a home and saw the youth in a garage, but he saw them coming and ran through a back yard and jumped over a fence to elude the officers. While pursuing the youth, one deputy fell on wet grass as other deputies called for the youth to stop running and give himself up. The youth continued to run through yards and jumped over fences, damaging some of the fences, the report said. Another deputy fell on the grass. At one point, he hid under a deck at one house. Deputies eventually corralled the suspect with the help of troopers at a residence and took him to the Monroe County Youth Center, where he was lodged without incident.
Deputies advised the youth they would seek charges against him of resisting and obstructing four police officers.
iPhone stolen from Meijer store
A Monroe man, 64, said an unidentified male suspect stole his iPhone XRS valued at $1,000 from his cart while shopping at the Meijer store in Frenchtown Township last week.
The incident happened about 7 p.m. at the store, 1700 N. Telegraph Rd. The man told deputies the theft took place while he was looking at items in the home goods’ section of the store. He said he saw the suspect standing near him in the aisle and looking suspicious, a deputy’s report said. He described the suspect as about 6-foot-2 with brown hair and tattoos.
The victim “pinged” the phone to track its location and got a location in Brownstown Township. The victim said he would contact Brownstown Police to assist him in locating the phone.
