Wixom police are investigating a trio of larcenies that occurred at businesses around the city over the last few weeks.
Two incidents occurred on Friday, Nov. 18. Police were dispatched to Gen Power, located at 29905 Anthony, where a commercial generator and trailer were stolen. The generator was valued at $45,000. A surveillance video showed a white pickup truck backing up toward the generator. Police are trying to obtain additional surveillance camera footage.
The case has since been turned over to detectives for investigation.
The second Nov. 18 incident occurred at Semiconductor Hybrid Assembly, located at 28065 Oakland Oaks, where outdoor patio furniture was stolen. Surveillance tapes showed that a larger, older white Ford pickup entered the parking lot and drove behind the building. It showed the driver exit the vehicle and scavenge through a dumpster. He then drove out of view of the camera’s scope.
The business has since requested extra police patrols given that it has been a target of larcenies in the past.
Lastly, a copper theft was reported Tuesday, Nov. 22. Representatives of Logex, located at 28003 Center Oaks, stated that an unknown suspect stole $2,500 worth of copper fittings from its storage facility. The perpetrator also took a pile of scrap metal that was on the ground near the building.
There currently are no suspects in the cases.
