It's all relative

On March 14, a Brandon deputy responded to the 100 block of N. Narrin Street for a drug complaint. The complainant said he observed his nephew speaking to his aunt at a nearby pet store and he suspected she sold his nephew drugs. The complainant told his nephew to give him what he bought and the nephew denied buying anything. The complainant said he would call police and the nephew asked him to not to. The complainant said upon returning home, his nephew gave him seven orange pills, which turned out to be Vicodin. The nephew admitted to police that he bought them for $40 from his aunt. The aunt also confessed.


On March 19, a Brandon deputy on patrol in the Sashabaw Meadows Mobile Home Park stopped a vehicle in the 3800 block of Cherry for a defective brake light. The driver had no driver's license, but did have two warrants out, from Friend of the Court and for a seatbelt violation. He was lodged at the Oakland County Jail on the warrants and also cited for no valid operator's license on person and defective equipment.

Not thinking

On March 20, at 6:20 p.m., a Brandon deputy on patrol was advised by dispatch to be on the lookout for a white van that was southbound on M-15 nearing South Street that was missing a wheel, with sparks flying. The deputy found the van, which was missing a front passenger side tire, driven on only a partial metal rim, with heavy front end damage and sparking heavily. He stopped the vehicle on Granger Road. The driver smelled of intoxicants.
