Although police did not describe the man as a danger to the public, police spent several hours searching for him after, at around 2 p.m., receiving a call from his parole agent who said he’d violated the conditions of his parole.  Police said his agent was concerned for the man’s welfare.

According to West Bloomfield Police Lt. Curt Lawson, the man voluntarily turned himself in to police, assisted by corrections agents, in the arws of  Northcote and Edinbourough Dr.  He was in custody before 6 p.m.

His name and the details of his case were not immediately released.
