burglaryThe quick thinking and action of a neighbor helped Plymouth Police solve a residential entry and burglary.

On Thursday afternoon, December 17th about 2:45, Plymouth Officer John Weir took a report from a neighbor who saw three male subjects break into a house and then leave the residence. The neighbor had photographed the subjects and police were able to ID them.

Two of the suspects were found to be under the age of 18 and one was an adult, 18 year old Anthony Steven Milton of Plymouth.

A short time later, another home owner called dispatch when he found his house had been broken into and several items including 3 firearms were taken. The juveniles were located by 2nd shift officers and taken into custody and Friday morning, Milton was located and taken into custody.

All items including the firearms were located and returned to the property owner.
