FPD have identified three suspects in vehicle larcenies

  Frankenmuth Police officers have identified three subjects in connection with vehicle thefts and larcenies in the city earlier this month.

  FPD Chief Don Mawer said petitions will be sent out for them. All three subjects are around 16 years old and from the east side of Saginaw. The police have their names.

  “We had an overwhelming response for tips thanks to news feeds, television and Facebook,” Mawer said. 𠇎ven a news station out of New York called PD Live covered this and showed the suspect photos.”

  The threesome is involved in stolen vehicle capers over the weekend of March 3-4, which also included the three stealing items from vehicles on the east end of the city.

  After receiving a Saginaw County Central Dispatch 911 call, officers went to the 500 block of Sunburst Drive. Spotting two different vehicles fleeing the area, they pursued a passenger car through yards, on to Parkview Court and then east on East Genesee Street where they reached speeds in excess of 100 MPH.

  The pursuit continued on Frankenmuth Road, into Tuscola County, through a field and ditch and then on Van Cleve Road. They ended up crashing the car on Fourth Street in the Village of Tuscola, where they exited the car and fled on foot.

  A day later, an area resident called the FPD, stating he saw the suspects in McDonald’s of Frankenmuth. Still photos from surveillance video were captured and printed in last week’s issue of the News as well as other media and social news outlets.

  The three used stolen credit cards to order and ship items to an address they all had in common. The investigation is continuing.
