Farmington Hills Police arrest armed subjects, still searching for three
At approximately 1 p.m. on Tuesday, August 8, the Farmington Hills Police Department was involved in a vehicle pursuit on Middlebelt Road south of Grand River Avenue. The suspect vehicle came to a stop in the road and five suspects fled the vehicle. Officers gave chase on foot arresting one subject immediately. A short time later, officers located a second suspect, who was taken into custody attempting to flee in a secondary vehicle. Three suspects were able to escape on foot and evaded capture. A review of video obtained after officers cleared the area revealed that the one of the suspects was armed with and attempting to conceal a compact assault rifle, as he fled from officers. This suspect was taken into custody, and the rifle was later recovered. Officers located an additional firearm inside the suspects’ vehicle.
The three remaining suspects are identified as follows (photos attached):
- B/M, thin build, braided hair, 18-21 yoa, wearing a camouflage hooded jacket, black pants wearing black and yellow Air Jordans.
- B/M, thin build, 18-21 yoa, black over brown hooded jacket, brown hat, black pants, white shoes.
- B/M, medium build, braided hair, 18-21 yoa, black hooded Nike sweatshirt, black pants.
The Farmington Hills Police Department is asking that anyone who knows or observes these remaining suspects contact 9-1-1. Do not attempt to confront these individuals.
Chief King attributes the safe arrest of the suspects and recovery of a pistol and an assault rifle from our streets to the dedication, professionalism, and training of the officers involved.
