Accused Shoplifter Goes From Bad To Worse

Washtenaw County sheriff's deputies conducted a traffic stop on a car of a 20-year-old-man in the 2500 block of Holmes Road in Ypsilanti Township at 8 p.m. Wednesday. It is reported that they discovered the man to be in possession of stolen merchandise from a shoplifting that occurred minutes earlier at a business known as Citi Trends located on Washtenaw Avenue in Pittsfield Township.

The man was placed in the back seat of the patrol vehicle while waiting for the Pittsfield Township police to arrive. The man then allegedly became upset and kicked out the side window of the patrol car. Once moved to a second patrol vehicle, the man again attempted to kick out the window but was unsuccessful.

The man has been arrested and is expected to be charged with retail fraud and malicious destruction of police property.
