Police Blotter

Rooftop AC and furnace makes for expensive heist

BURTON — Between midnight and 6 a.m. on Nov. 22, a Bristol Road business was subjected to a rooftop larceny. According to the owner, a 59- year-old Grand Blanc man, three heating and cooling units positioned on the roof of the building were stolen during the early morning hours. Police arrived and checked out the premises where they confirmed the shells of three heating and cooling units that were torn apart so the compressors could be extracted. The equipment was valued at $20,000 and police are still looking for suspects in the case.

Old home of former Burton residents ransacked

BURTON — A Grand Blanc family who used to live on Robindale Drive was checking up on their former home when they got a nasty surprise on Nov. 21. The 32-year-old mother called police after noticing major damage to the house around 3 p.m. Much of the home’s copper piping was removed in addition to a window air conditioning unit. Open doors and broken windows allowed standing water and leaves to collect inside the house. The family told officers they had recently been checking on the house more frequently and the looting could have occurred within the past two days. The case is under investigation.
