Auto theft

On May 7, at 10 a.m., a Brandon deputy on patrol observed a white Suzuki in the ditch on the south side of E. Glass Road, southwest of Granger Road. The vehicle was damaged from striking a tree and appeared to be abandoned. A check of the Law Enforcement Information Network showed the vehicle was stolen out of Genesee County. The driver side window was down and the deputy found a wallet with two driverís licenses, neither of which belonged to the registered owner. The case is open.

London calling

On May 10, a Brandon deputy responded to N. Hadley Road for a fraud report. The complainant said that on May 9, an unknown responsible hacked into her hotmail account and asked those on her mailing list to send her money to London. She was not in London and this was an obvious attempt at fraud. To her knowledge, no money was sent.

Purse snatched

On May 11, a Brandon deputy took a larceny report at the Brandon substation. The complainant said she placed her purse on the back of a chair at the Subway restaurant at M-15 and Glass Road. She inadvertently left the purse on the chair and when she returned a short time later, it was gone. No one turned in the purse, which contained $20, miscellaneous credit cards, and her military identification. The credit cards have been cancelled.

Absent mom

On May 12, at 4:55 p.m., a Brandon deputy responded to the Brandon School District Transportation center for an assist. The supervisor said when the bus driver tried to drop off a child at a home in the 4300 block of Hazel, there was no one there to let the boy or his brother into the home. The children were taken to the substation and fed pizza and it was discovered that the childrenís mother had been taken to the hospital via the Brandon Fire Department. The mother was discharged at 4:15 p.m., but was not located at the hospital. She contacted the Oakland County dispatch at 6:30 p.m. and advised that she had waited three hours for a cab and was now home. The deputy brought the boys home. An informational report was forwarded to Childrenís Protective Services due to a history of unusual circumstances at the address.
