GRAND BLANC TWP. — On Aug. 26 at approximately 7:22 p.m., officers were called to the 1300 block of Maple Road for a report of a suspicious male who appeared to be impaired by drugs or alcohol who was breaking into a storage shed at the Tudor Estates mobile home park. The 43-year-old Burton man was found to be carrying a paint can with some black sludge in it, as well as two syringes, some suspected heroin and other drug paraphernalia, police said.

Reward refused, woman hits witness with car

GRAND BLANC TWP. — On Aug. 27, at approximately 5:20 p.m., officers were called to 5300 block of South Saginaw Road, for a report of felonious assault. Witnesses told police a person had lost her phone at a local store then advertised on Facebook, saying she would pay a $200 reward for its return. The suspect, a 44-year-old Flint woman, agreed to meet to return the phone but refused to do so without being paid the reward offered. When she attempted to leave, a 19-year-old Flint woman attempted to stop her, so the suspect allegedly struck her with the vehicle, causing her to slide up on the car and then off. The suspect then left but came back later and was arrested and will be charged pending further investigation. — P.S.

‘Huffer’ loses consciousness, wrecks twice

GRAND BLANC TWP. — On Aug 28 at approximately 8:16 a.m., officers were dispatched to the 3100 block of East Hill Road for a report of a car accident. Upon arrival, officers found a car had struck a tree, bounced off and careened into the foundation of a home, severely damaging it. The car, a silver Pontiac Grand Prix, was then reported to have crashed further down the road. Upon arrival at the second scene, officers interviewed the 19-year-old Grand Blanc man, who said he ‘blacked out.’ Police said the car smelled of marijuana and the driver had a small laceration but initially refused medical treatment. He appeared to be pale and complained of nausea. After searching the vehicle, officers found multiple marijuana cigarettes as well as a full can of computer spray cleaner and the suspect admitted to ‘huffing’ another can of that product, which he threw out the window when empty. Officers said huffing deprives the brain of oxygen, which likely led to the suspect blacking out. He had no alcohol in his system and warrants are pending the result of a blood draw. He was released into the custody of family, who took him to receive a medical evaluation. — P.S.
