Burglary Suspects caught near Campus and Stolen Property Recovered
Kalamazoo, MI: On Saturday, November 27, 2010, at approximately 11:51 pm, Kalamazoo Public Safety Officers were conducting covert patrols near Western Michigan University’s Campus. Officers were targeting potential break-in suspects.
Community Policing Officer Jeremy Shaffer observed a suspicious vehicle parked in the 100 block of Dobbin St occupied by two females. After interviewing the vehicle occupants, PSO Shaffer determined that the females were actually waiting for two males to return to the vehicle with stolen property. The males were out committing break-ins, the females were waiting for them as a “get away” car.
During the investigation CPO Shaffer was able to recover a stolen Sony flat screen TV and an X-box 360 with games. The two male suspects were identified but never located. A criminal case has been submitted for warrant request on all four subjects named. The origin of the stolen property is still being investigated.
Anyone who may have information regarding this incident, or information regarding other burglaries, is asked to contact Public Safety at 337-8994 or Silent Observer at 343-2100 or www.kalamazoosilentobserver.com.
