Home Invasion Suspects Flee Ferndale Police, Crash in Detroit

(Ferndale Police, Jan. 28, 2020)

Ferndale, MI  -On January 28, 2020, a West Drayton resident heard a noise coming from the first floor of his Ferndale home. He went to investigate and discovered an intruder standing in his living room. The intruder ran out the back door and entered an occupied vehicle that fled the area. He called Ferndale Police Dispatch and we responded to the area. During the investigation, we received information from the Madison Heights Police Department linking our home invasion to similar crimes that recently occurred in their town. They provided us with a description of a vehicle and suspects related to their incidents. One of our veteran dispatchers did a great job of locating an address in Hazel Park that one of the suspect’s recently used.

We sent officers to check that address and while they sat in their scout car in front of house the suspect vehicle, a 2014 Ford Fusion, drove by. A short pursuit ensued into Warren and then Detroit where the driver of the Fusion struck a utility pole near Ryan and Eight Mile, crashed into several houses, and came to rest upside down pinning both occupants. Our officers immediately rushed to help both injured men out of the vehicle, one of whom was unconscious and unresponsive. Detroit Fire responded and both men were transported to a local hospital for treatment. The condition of the men, who are under police guard, is unknown at this time.

Inside the crashed Fusion, officers located the items that were stolen in the West Drayton home invasion just minutes earlier. Both suspects, a 27-year-old man from Detroit and a 27-year -old man who uses addresses in both St. Clair Shores and Hazel Park, will remain in custody while detectives seek warrants from the Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office.

Thanks to the Madison Heights Police Department for the information that lead to these arrests.
