Collaborative efforts by multiple law enforcement agencies helped lead to the capture of two men charged in connection with a string of home invasions and thefts in Milford, White Lake and surrounding communities, authorities said.
Jason Weeks and James Golding, both 38, were charged with felony counts of home invasion and receiving and concealing stolen property following a joint investigation by the Milford Police Department, White Lake Police Department and the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office.
Investigators with the sheriff’s Fugitive Apprehension Team were conducting surveillance on the men after discovering they had pawned large amounts of jewelry, Milford police said Tuesday in a media release sent by the sheriff’s office.
“During the surveillance, FAT suspected Weeks and Golding of committing a home invasion in White Lake Township and later observed them commit an offence in Milford Township,” the release stated.
The men were arrested and subsequently charged in separate, two-count warrants, including 2nd degree home invasion – a felony punishable up to 15 years – and a 5-year felony count of receiving and concealing stolen property.
“This case is another example of the importance of cross-jurisdictional partnerships between area law enforcement agencies,” Milford police said. These relationships allow professional law enforcement officers to share information and collaborate on cases to bring closure for our victims and our communities.”
