February 09, 2011 - Forgetful

On Feb. 5, at 10:10 p.m., a Brandon deputy on patrol on Dogwood near Hawthorn observed a vehicle speeding. The deputy stopped the vehicle at S. Sashabaw and Oakhill roads. The driver was cited for driving while license suspended. A LEIN check showed the passenger had a felony warrant for probation violation for an original charge of sexual assault and a misdemeanor warrant for minor in possession. He smelled of intoxicants and a preliminary breathalyzer test showed he had a blood alcohol content of .068 percent. He also had marijuana in his front pocket, which he said he forgot was there. The passenger was taken to the Oakland County Jail on the two warrants and cited for possession of marijuana and minor in possession.

Lots of static

On Feb. 7, a Brandon deputy on patrol on Sashabaw Road near Ingles Lane observed a car with its high beams on. He flashed his own headlights at the driver twice to let him know to turn them off. When the driver continued without turning down the high beams, the deputy stopped him. The driver smelled of marijuana. The deputy asked the driver if he had anything he should not have, or if he had anything illegal in the vehicle. The man hesitated before responding no to each question. Several dryer sheets were found in the man's pocket, as well as a marijuana cigarette. The man denied smoking marijuana today. A search of the vehicle found a bag of marijuana and two pills labeled "Adderall." The man was arrested for operating under the influence of drugs, as well as possession of narcotics and marijuana. He was taken to the hospital for a blood draw before being transported to the Oakland County Jail. The case is open.

Tools

On Feb. 7, a Brandon deputy responded to the 4400 block of Hemlock Loop in the Sashabaw Meadows Mobile Home Park for theft of tools and equipment from a maintenance building. The maintenance supervisor said he was at the building the day before at 10:30 a.m. and the building was secure. He returned today at 7 a.m. and found items disturbed and many tools stolen. Further inspection found the suspect or suspects tried to pry an outside door open without success. The suspect gained entry by partially removing pins from the door hinges.

Two fences were also cut to gain entry to the lot. Tools stolen included a reciprocating electric saw, a cordless drill, a 50-foot air hose, an air compressor, drill batteries, chargers, cordless reciprocating saws, propane torches, flashlights, concrete saws, a backpack blower, weed trimmer and miscellaneous hand tools. The case is open.
