Two suspects arrested in Hamburg Township fire-related home invasion

Hamburg Township Police say a surveillance operation has resulted in the arrest of two suspects in connection with the break-in of a home damaged by fire last week.

During the early morning hours of November 9, a residence on Teahen Road near Cowell Road sustained heavy damage in a fire that was significant enough the residents were unable to continue living at the home until repairs could be made.

According to a release, the following evening Hamburg Township police officers conducted a surveillance operation on the home as there had been a series of break-ins at fire-damaged homes within Livingston County and surrounding counties over the past several months, including two break-ins after recent fires in Hamburg Township.

“At approximately 10:40pm, an undercover officer observed a black Ford Fiesta circling the area of the home on Teahen Road,” stated the release. “The vehicle subsequently pulled into the driveway of the fire-damaged home and two male occupants exited the vehicle. Officers watched as the two males forced entry into the boarded-up home. The male suspects subsequently exited the home and re-entered their vehicle to leave at which time uniformed officers in patrol cars prevented their escape. Property from the residence and other evidence was located within the vehicle.”

The suspects, a 51-year old Livonia man and a 43-year old Southfield man, were arrested for the break-in and charged by the Livingston County Prosecutor’s Office with felony Home Invasion, Receiving & Concealing Stolen Property and Possession of Burglary Tools.

The investigation into the previous fire-related home invasions remains ongoing.
