Be On The Lookout

There is a three person crew that has been hitting some of vacant houses in the Warrendale neighborhood; stealing furnaces, water heaters, and anything else that they can. A witness described these individuals as being two white males, each approximately 5'8", and a white female with long brown hair. They drive a black Ford pickup truck with red on its sides and no license plate.

Stealing items like this from a vacant house makes it much more difficult and expensive to restore it and bring it back to code so that a new family can move in. Neighbors are asked to keep an eye out for these individuals and call the Detroit Police Department, if you see them.

First off, thanks for letting us be aware of this theft. The housing market is already struggling and now people are stealing items from vacant homes? I wouldn't move into a home without a furnace. Unless I started making much more money. hehe. Keep a watchful eye on this everyone!
