Ann Zaniewski Detroit Free Press Published 8:54 p.m. UTC Aug 1, 2018 Canton police announced Wednesday the arrests of five people allegedly involved in a wide-ranging retail theft ring that netted more than $125,000 in stolen property. Canton Police Deputy Director Chad Baugh said the items were stolen from stores throughout southeast Michigan. “We’re just very fortunate to have a great partnership with not only the retailers that assisted in providing some of the information, but also Michigan State Police and Dearborn police to help bring some resolution to the victims, which are the retailers and ultimately, all of us,” Baugh said. The arrests were made within the previous 24 hours, Baugh said Wednesday afternoon. Officers executed search warrants at a house on Detroit’s west side and at a warehouse and storage unit in Dearborn.

He said more information would be released once the defendants are charged. “(It was) anything you can imagine buying at a retail store,” he said. Canton police began the investigation about four months ago. Contact staff writer Ann Zaniewski at 313-222-6594 or [email protected] Follow her on Twitter: @AnnZaniewski.
