LAPEER — It’s coming up on a year since the Lapeer Police Dept. released a video after the Sunoco station at 1489 N. Main St. was burglarized, and there have been no leads.

The break-in happened before 2:30 a.m. on Friday, March 11, 2016. Two suspects broke in and stole lottery tickets and glass smoking pipes. One was a white male with a stocky build wearing dark sweatpants, a dark hooded sweat- shirt with lighter colored sleeves, and Converse tennis shoes. The other suspect was a white male, thin build, wearing a winter hat with a yarn ball on top, dark colored long-sleeve hooded shirt, and sweatpants. The suspects may have been driving a light colored, possibly white, Chevy Tahoe or GMC Yukon.

“It wound up being about a couple hundred dollars in property, but the lottery tickets were probably another $650,” said Lapeer Police Chief Todd Alexander.

He said the tickets are traceable, so they’d be able to tell if anyone had tried to cash in a winner. No one has.

“It’s just a case that we have out there, and we don’t have anything else to go on,” said Alexander. “We’ve never had any new leads.”

Anyone with information on this crime is asked to call Det./Sgt. Craig Gormley at 810- 664-0833

The Lapeer Police Dept. does have two outstanding warrants that Alexander mentioned as “most wanted.”

The first is Jason Frank Keyser, date of birth April 26, 1991. He’s been wanted since June 2015 for retail fraud and operating and maintaining a meth lab. His last known address was in Melbourne, Fla.

The second is Steven Michael Berg, date of birth June 29, 1956. In June 2016, he stole a Chevrolet pickup within the City of Lapeer. He was also charged with the unlawful use of a license plate or registration.

If you know the whereabouts of either Keyser or Berg, call the department at 810-664-0833.
