Farmington Vehicle Stolen After Thieves Took Stereo, GPS in December

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

A Farmington resident called police Feb. 13 to report the theft of a vehicle that had also been targeted by thieves in December.

According to the Farmington Public Safety report, the thefts occurred in an apartment complex in the 21000 block of Farmington Road. The owner told police that the vehicle's dashboard instrument panel, stereo, GPS and other items were taken on Dec. 5, 2012. 

The new dashboard and stereo had just been installed when the vehicle theft occurred, sometime between 8 p.m. on Feb. 11 and 7:30 a.m. on Feb. 13. 

Drunken driving charged

Two 20-year-old Novi women face alcohol-related charges after a Farmington Public Safety officer patrolling on Grand River stopped a speeding vehicle just before 3 a.m. on Feb. 12. 

According to the report, the officer noticed a strong odor of alcohol coming from the vehicle. Both the driver and passenger told the officer they were waitresses at a Farmington Hills bar and had a few drinks after their shift ended. A preliminary breath test showed the driver's blood alcohol level was 0.12, which is more than the .08 legal limit. The test showed the passenger's blood alcohol level was 0.14; in Michigan, no one under 21 is allowed to have any alcohol. 

Marijuana-related arrest

An 18-year-old Farmington Hills resident faces marijuana possession charges following a Feb. 8 traffic stop at Farmington Road and Alta Loma. According to the report, the officer stopped the vehicle because the driver's side window was tinted, and a check of the registered owner's record showed a suspended license. The officer noticed a strong odor of marijuana, and while searching the vehicle, found a cigarillo wrapper containing a small plastic bag of marijuana. The driver did not have a driver's license, the report indicated.
