LIVONIA, MI – On Monday April 9th, 2018, Livonia Police Officers were called to the area of 29912 Orangelawn on a suspicious persons report. The reporting person observed two black males by a vehicle and they ran away once they saw him taking out his trash.
While officers were talking to the person making the report, a Toyota Corolla began approaching them on Orangelawn. The vehicle stopped, a subject got out of the passenger seat, and immediately entered a 2010 Ford Escape. The Escape started up right away and the two vehicles drove away together. The officers went to investigate this and they located the Toyota unoccupied around the corner.
At that time it was determined that the Toyota was entered as stolen vehicle out of Romulus. They then heard a crash which was the freshly stolen Ford Escape crashing into a parked car. The Escape was located and it crashed again at the entrance to LA Fitness. After a short foot pursuit, Coranthos Reed, 18-years-old, of Inkster, was arrested.
Coranthos Reed is charged with one count of Larceny and one count UDDA and two counts of Receiving and Concealing Stolen Property (a motor vehicle) and one count of Unlawful Use of A Motor Vehicle.
Bond was set at $100,000 Cash and he is scheduled to appear at a Probable Cause Conference in the 16th District Court on April 19th, 2018 at 9 a.m.
