Press Release

Mount Clemens, MI – Earlier today, December 8, 2023, Macomb County Sheriff’s Deputies apprehended three individuals, driving a stolen Ford Edge from Harrison Township. The vehicle was initially observed near Joy Boulevard and Executive Drive in Harrison Township.


A Sheriff’s Deputy attempted to stop the vehicle as it was traveling on Executive Drive. However, the vehicle sped up and attempted to evade the Deputy’s efforts. The driver pulled the vehicle to a stop behind a business on Executive Drive. Two individuals, a male, 37 years-old, from Harrison Township, and a male, 18 years-old, from Detroit, immediately fled from the vehicle. A female suspect, 25 years-old, from Detroit, stayed in the vehicle and was quickly apprehended by a Deputy. 


Another Deputy pursued one of the male suspects on foot and was able to take him into custody just north of the stopped stolen vehicle. Additional units arrived at the scene and set a perimeter to contain the third suspect. A K9 Unit and Drone Unit were also deployed to assist with the incident. 


A citizen reported seeing an individual matching the description of the suspect in the bushes behind a building on Irwin Street. Deputies were able to take the third suspect into custody without incident. 


All suspects are currently housed at the Macomb County Jail. 


Sheriff Wickersham commends the quick-thinking efforts of all those involved in this incident. He also extends his appreciation to the Good Samaritan who reported the location of the third suspect.
