NORTHVILLE, MI – The man who caused a shopping center in Northville to be evacuated where he went into a Meijer store when he became enraged about customer service has been formally charged but not with what you would have expected.
Denis Marku, 36-years-old, of Clinton Township, has been charged in connection with an alleged threat to a Meijer Store in Northville. On Wednesday June 6th, 2018 at 11:38 a.m., Marku was at a Meijer Store located in the 20400 block of Haggerty Road in Northville when he made a statement that was overheard by a store employee about people being blown up.
The store employee promptly reported this to a Meijer’s team member who called the Northville Township Police Department. The police arrived at the store, arrested Marku and evacuated the store as a safety precaution. His white sedan was parked outside of the entrance to the store. No explosive devices were found in the store or in Marku’s car.
After review of the facts and the law, it has been determined that there is insufficient evidence to charge Denis Marku with False Report or Threat of Terrorism or False Report or Threat of Bomb or Harmful Device. The defendant has been charged with Disturbing the Peace, a misdemeanor which carries a maximum penalty of 90 days in jail.
