WESTLAND (WWJ) – Police are asking the public for help identifying two suspects who were caught on camera breaking into an unlocked vehicle outside of a home in Westland.
The incident happened just after 4:30 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 2 at a home in the 200 block of Bedford, in a neighborhood off Cherry Hill and Newburgh roads.
The two suspects can be seen on video entering the victim’s unlocked vehicle, which was parking in the driveway outside of the home, through the driver’s side door. Both enter the vehicle and eventually exit the vehicle with items in their hands.
It’s a crime that police say could have been avoided by simply locking the doors.
