FPD investigate Baker Rd. home invasion

  Frankenmuth Police officers are investigating a home invasion case that took place last week in northern Frankenmuth Township.

  The incident took place on Friday, September 15, in the 8000 block of Baker Road. The actual break-in was between the hours of 7:30am, when the residents left for the day, until 3:30pm, when the daughter of the homeowner returned home from school to discover the door had been opened with force.

  FPD Sergeant Tony McLaughlin said the female entered the home, then called her parents who is turn contacted the local police. The suspect had already fled the scene.

  A registered hand gun was stolen, along with two computers, other electronic equipment jewelry and other items. Paperwork was strewn all over the place.

  “We recovered some physical evidence from the scene and we are following up on a couple leads at this time,” McLaughlin said.

  The case has been turned over to FPD Detective Sergeant Randy Flathau. Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact the Frankenmuth Police at 652-8371.

  In other FPD news, officers on routine patrol stopped a speeding vehicle near the intersection of Townline Road and Dixie Highway. The stop took place shortly after 6pm on Saturday, September 16.

  A computer check determined the driver, a 32-year-old Saginaw man, was wanted on two outstanding warrants from the Saginaw County Friend of the Court. He was unable to post bond and was lodged in the Saginaw County Jail.

  FPD officers also handled a minor injury accident Friday morning, September 15, at the intersection of Main and Genesee streets.

  A 71-year-old Frankenmuth female rear-ended a vehicle driven by a 46-year-old Vassar male. She suffered minor injuries and was transported to Covenant HealthCare by MMR Ambulance. No tickets were issued.
