Two teenagers were taken into custody after Oakland County Sheriff’s Department Commerce Township substation deputies found them allegedly in possession of stolen electronics and other goods.
Deputies were called to Ravinewood in the Lake Sherwood subdivision for a suspicious vehicle on Saturday, Aug. 6, at around 2 a.m.
Police found two teenagers parked in a red Ford Ranger with the lights off. When the window was rolled down, the cops smelled a strong odor of marijuana. They also observed a vial of marijuana as well as three small glass vials of an unknown substance.
Further searching of the vehicle yielded a white nylon bag with several large zip lock bags of marijuana, pipes, a digital scale, and other drug paraphernalia. Twenty grams of marijuana was found in one bag, 20.5 grams in another, 4 grams in a small baggie, and 5 grams in a mason jar.
A bag containing several GPS units of various makes, a Sony camcorder, three iPods, numerous pairs of sunglasses, a set of Nike golf clubs, a radar detector, and other electronic devices were also found in the vehicle.
After interviewing the subjects, the police discovered that the two teenagers had more stolen property in their homes that came from robbing unlocked cars within the Lake Sherwood and Beacon Hill subdivisions over the past three months.
