According to reports, businesses at Grand River and Drake in Farmington and Newburgh and Five Mile Road in Livonia also reported break-ins.
The reports indicated that Farmington Hills officers responded to alarms at a convenience store on Farmington Road north of Eight Mile, and a gas station at Middlebelt and Grand River, between 1:30 a.m. and 2:30 a.m.
