A Brighton Post trooper investigating a breaking and entering of a residence in Genoa Township instructed the homeowner to check local pawn shops and Web sites for the property that was taken from his home. Two days later, the homeowner located his stolen Mac computer for sale on Craig’s list.
With the assistance of undercover investigators from the Livingston and Washtenaw Narcotics Enforcement Team (LAWNET), a meeting was arranged at the Ypsilanti residence of the person who listed the computer for sale. The undercover officer confirmed the computer was stolen and a search warrant was obtained. Uniformed officers from the Ypsilanti Post served the search warrant, recovering the computer and numerous other stolen items .
