WARREN, Mich. — Police are currently investigating at least four break-ins at local carwashes in Warren, according to Warren Weekly.
The break-ins are possibly tied to a sequence of similar crimes reported in southern Macomb County between March 19 and 20, stated the article.
Warren Police Department Detective Sgt. Stephen Mills said the first crime was reported soon after midnight on March 19 at Super Car Wash, informed the article.
The intruders allegedly broke into the building by kicking out an overhead garage door window on the east side of the facility, reported the article, but are said to not have taken anything.
Police believe that the same intruders targeted two more local carwashes about 24 hours later, added the article.
On March 20 after midnight at Ryan Road Car Wash, continued the article, a rear door was pried open and damaged, but nothing was reported to be missing.
Additionally, stated the article, a window at Sparkle Clean Car Wash was shattered on the west side after midnight, and the intruders left with gift cards and cash.
At another Super Car Wash on 12 Mile at which a glass door was shattered, reported the article, two unidentified suspects wearing hooded sweatshirts allegedly can be seen on video around 6:40 a.m. on March 20; however, nothing has been reported missing.
Warren detectives are reportedly investigating if the carwash break-ins are tied to similar incidents in other areas, noted the article, including Roseville, Clinton Township and perhaps Fraser.
“It’s quick cash,” said Mills in the article. “They’re looking to get the (morning) startup money.”
