The man accused of breaking and entering several garages in a Canton Township subdivision has been arrested and charged.
Paul Allen Ziolkowski, 42, from Inkster, was arraigned in 35th District Court March 13 on three charges of breaking and entering, each a 10-year felony, along with a charge of habitual offender second offense charge.
Last month, the Canton Police Department received a call from a resident who had observed a suspicious person looking in open garages in her neighborhood, near Lilley an Palmer roads. Officers responded to the location and were able to make contact with the subject. From there an investigation was conducted by detectives, resulting in the arrest of Ziolkowski.
“We feel this arrest is a direct result of a resident being aware of her neighborhood surroundings and reporting the suspicious activity to the police,” said Special Services Lieutenant Craig Wilsher.
“This is an excellent example of team work, starting with an alert resident, followed by diligent police work and a thorough follow-up investigation, to bring the criminal to justice,” Wilsher added.
Judge James A. Plakas set Ziolkowski’s bond at $100,000 cash and scheduled his preliminary court hearing on the charges at the 35th District Court on April 4. A not guilty plea was entered on his behalf.
