FPD investigates larcenies at St. John's
A pair of possibly-related larceny cases are being investigated by the Franken-muth Police Department.
FPD Sergeant Tony McLaughlin said officers were called to the 1200 block of East Genesee Street, St. John’s Lutheran Church, around 9pm Tuesday, July 5.
Officers arrived to find cables that secured picnic tables cut at the church’s pavilion. Police believe the church secretary arrived and scared off the subjects. Officers took the cables as evidence.
On Saturday, July 9, church officials arrived to find their shed was forcibly entered. A push lawnmower, a five-gallon can of gasoline and a tool box were taken from the shed.
Officers believe the same subjects were involved in the larcenies and the investigation is continuing.
Around noon on Friday, July 8, local police were contacted by the Grand Blanc Police Department. They had a 21-year-old Flint female is custody on a pair of outstanding traffic warrants from the FPD.
The two police agencies met at the I-75/Vienna Road intersection where she was taken into custody and lodged in the Saginaw County Jail.
Shortly before 11pm Thursday, July 7, officers on patrol observed a vehicle traveling north on Main Street make a right-hand turn (east) on to East Genesee Street. He was driving with his headlights out, was partially on the sidewalk and he struck a utility pole.
Contact was made with the driver, a 36-year-old Frankenmuth male. He failed field sobriety tests and was lodged in the Saginaw County Jail for allegedly operating while impaired. The vehicle was towed from the scene.
On Thursday, July 7, officers were called to a home in the 9800 block of West Tuscola Road for a larceny that took place between July 4-7.
The property owner told police someone removed his pickup truck tailgate and bed cover. The case remains under investigation.
Shortly after midnight on Monday, July 4, officers were called to the 300 block of West Genesee Street for a domestic assault in progress.
Officers arrived to find the suspect had fled the scene. The assailant, a 23-year-old Frankenmuth female, said an argument between them turned physical, with pushing and shoving. She showed signs of bruising.
The following day, Tuesday, July 5, the suspect, a 27-year-old Saginaw male, turned himself in at the FPD station. He alleged she was the aggressor, punching and pushing him. He also had signs of injury.
The officers took their interview report and forwarded it to the Saginaw County Prosecutor’s Office for ejudification.
The third annual FrankenMudder will take place 8am until 12:30pm on Saturday, July 16. Most of the action will take place along Weiss Street, from the Michigan’s Military and Space Heroes Museum and Heritage Park.
The Weiss and East Jefferson streets intersection will be congested for most of the four-hour time frame. Locals and employees of Frankenmuth firms should take alternate routes, McLaughlin advised.
