1-Year-Old Child Found Wandering in Farmington Hills Apartment Complex Hall

The following information was supplied by the Farmington Hills Police Department. Arrests and charges do not indicate a conviction.

A resident at a Farmington Hills apartment complex on Orchard Lake Road called police shortly after 9 p.m. on Saturday after finding a 1-year-old child wandering unsupervised in the hallway. 

According to the Farmington Hills Police report, an officer recognized the child because he had responded to a similar call in February. At the family's apartment, police found the door open and the child's mother sleeping. The report indicated that the child's mother told police she thought her child was still at a relative's home. The mother also told police she had taken medication for post-surgical pain. 

Police told the mother that because of the previous call a child neglect report would be filed, according to the report. 

Tire theft

A resident in the 22000 block of Cordoba called police Saturday morning to report the tires and wheels were stolen from underneath his vehicle sometime during the previous night. According to the report, the vehicle was parked near the apartment building in which the vehicle owner lives and was left sitting on bricks. 

Drunken driving arrest

A 52-year-old Maryville, MO, man faces a drunken driving charge following a Sunday evening accident on I-696 east of Orchard Lake Road. 

According to the report, a witness who spoke with police said the driver cut off another vehicle, forcing that vehicle into the ditch. Police noticed a strong odor of alcohol while talking with the driver; a preliminary breath test showed his blood alcohol content was 0.221, more than twice the 0.08 legal limit.
