Northville Township Police report a 50-year-old Plymouth man was arrested early Saturday morning after an attempted break-in of the Marathon Gas Station located at Haggerty and Five Mile Rd. in Northville Township. A second suspect, an African American male, wearing all black clothing and believed to be in his 30’s is still at large. The attempted break-in occurred just before 2:00 a.m.
Police officials are asking area residents who notice any suspicious activity to call 9-1-1.
According to a press release, two men tried to break out the glass of the entry doors of the gas station with a hammer. Officials say the one man was arrested after he tried to flee police when they attempted to pull him and a second suspect over around 5 a.m. in the area of 7 Mile and Clement Roads.
Information about the crime was broadcast to area police agencies. A short time later a City of Northville Police Officer observed a vehicle matching the description of the vehicle used in the crime. When the officer tried to stop the vehicle, a short pursuit occurred. The two suspects fled from the vehicle on foot.
The yet to be identified 50-year-old man was arrested after he was discovered hiding inside a shed behind a home in the City of Northville. It was later determined that the vehicle had been stolen from an apartment complex in the area of Five Mile and Haggerty Rd.
Police say the man arrested was recently paroled from the Michigan Department of Corrections (MDOC). He is expected to be turned over to MDOC on Monday.
The investigation is ongoing. When it is concluded, the facts, evidence and circumstances of the crime will be submitted to the Wayne County Prosecutors Office for a determination of charges.
