Michael Reed Michael Reed IMLAY TWP. — A 26-year-old Almont man is facing auto burglary charges after Bristol Road area residents told Lapeer County Sheriff’s Dept. deputies Friday morning that their vehicles had been broken into.

Sgt. Jason Parks said deputies were called to a home on Bristol Road at 5 a.m. Friday after a homeowner told deputies he confronted a man breaking into cars in driveways who ran to a nearby dark-colored vehicle.

Parks said deputies found a dark-colored Buick LeSabre, driven by a 27-year-old Bruce Township woman, stopped on Newark Road. The woman reportedly told deputies she was with her boyfriend, Reed, they were lost and he’d gone to ask directions. She eventually told deputies that she and Reed had planned to spend the night at the M-53 Motel, but he needed some money.

Officer Laura Mohr at the Almont Police Dept. said she had taken Reed to the Kingsbury Mobile Home Community in Almont after he walked into the police department in Almont.

Deputies Jesse Rhodes and Chris Bowman went to a residence occupied by Reed in the Kingsbury Mobile Home Community and reportedly found items taken from the Imlay Township cars. They also found he was being sought on a probation violation warrant in Lapeer County and a child support warrant in Macomb County.
