Police Blotter

Suspicious activity

BURTON — On Nov. 6, a neighbor reported several people going into and out of an abandoned home on Norton Street that had been marked inhabitable by city of Burton code enforcement. When police arrived to the home, there were four individuals inside, who were all detained and asked for identification. After checking all the individuals through LEIN, an officer found one of the individuals had a two-count felony warrant for dangerous drugs/operating while intoxicated and a two-count felony warrant for felonious assault and breaking and entering. The man was arrested for his felony warrants and lodged at the Genesee County Jail. — T.T.

Possession of crack

BURTON —On Nov. 4, while traveling northbound on Center Road from Bristol Road, an officer discovered the owner of a white sedan was showing to have a suspended driver’s license. The officer effected a traffic stop in the parking lot of the McDonald’s restaurant on Center Road. When asked for his driver’s license, the driver said it was suspended. When the officer ran the driver through LEIN/SOS, it showed the driver had a warrant for driving while license suspended. Upon getting consent to search the vehicle, the officer found a wad of blue toilet paper in the center console containing suspected marijuana.

The officer also located a smaller wad of blue toilet tissue containing suspected crack cocaine. The driver said the marijuana was his, and he did not have a medical marijuana license. He said the crack was not his, but his cousin had been in the car earlier and must have left it. He said he did smoke crack occasionally. The driver was transported to Flint City Lockup where he was lodged on charges of violation of The Controlled Substance Act. — T.T.

Parole absconder

BURTON — On Nov. 4, a neighbor reported a man was intoxicated in the area who was on a tether and threatening to damage the caller’s vehicle. Upon arrival to the 3000 block of E. Hemphill Road, the reportedly intoxicated man had gone back into his home. Since the caller said the man had threatened to damage her vehicle, but did not assault her or threaten to hurt her, the officer determined no crime had been committed against the caller. Before he cleared the scene, the officer ran the man through LEIN, which determined he was a parole absconder for manslaughter and assault/resisting and obstructing police out of the Lansing tether unit. The officer knocked on the front door, announcing himself, but the man refused to answer. The officer began knocking on the window. Since the window was old, the window broke and officer’s hand went through the window. At this point, the man agreed to step out. He was transported to Flint City Lockup, where he was lodged. — T.T.
