Three arrested, charged in Livonia burglary spree

Three local men have been arrested in connection with a series of burglaries in Livonia, Michigan, during the month of February. The men, whose ages range from 17 to 20, are facing several felony counts in connection with the alleged incidents of larceny and theft.

Authorities report that two of the men, ages 17 and 20, have been charged with a litany of crimes in connection with a Feb. 22 break-in at Shooters Service on Six Mile. Not only do they face breaking and entering charges, but they are also accused of five counts of larceny of a firearm, along with five counts of receiving and concealing those firearms. Another 17-year-old suspect was charged with fewer counts of the same charges, ostensibly because he is accused of taking fewer guns.

Additionally, the young men face similar charges in connection with alleged break-ins at The Shoe Store, Papa's Pizza and The Product Shop, all of which occurred on Feb. 23. Vick's Car Wash, Boost Mobile and Chopsticks and Rice were also burglarized during the alleged spree. The young men face additional charges of possession of burglar tools, larceny and attempted breaking and entering in connection with these break-ins.

Bond amounts for the three men range from $30,000 to $50,000. Authorities report that they are still searching for a fourth suspect, a female, though that person has not yet been arraigned.

The next legal step for these young men hinges heavily on the amount of evidence the prosecutors have been able to obtain in connection with the robberies. Prosecutors may be able to link the men to the crimes through video or DNA evidence, for example. The suspects will have fewer legal options if they are explicitly visible in security surveillance tapes.

Depending on the evidence presented by prosecutors, the men could consider pleading guilty. The state may be willing to drop or lower the severity of some charges, depending on the conditions of a plea agreement. The men should consult with their attorneys about the next step in their criminal defense.
