Neighborhood Crime Watch

Tonight's News Ten Neighborhood Crime Watch is an update to Monday night's report.
That's when I told you about a couple of complaints received by the Clinton County Sheriff's Office involving a door to door business that sells meat.
The victims in this case purchased meat from a salesman, who would then come back days later to say the meat was recalled,, the salesman would take the meat back, and not replace it, or refund any money.
Dean Watkins of Great Lakes Gourmet Food in Clinton County tells the sheriff's office a former employee may be responsible.
That employee reportedly stole one of the company's vans, full of meat, and is believed to have been acting on his own.
The stolen vehicle was eventually found in indiana.
Mr. Watkins is now working with local law enforcement to locate the former employee for prosecution.
Also a warning for Clinton County residents about pan handlers.
In the one-thousand block of West Park Road a woman in her mid-20's, heavy set, with dark hair in a ponytail, went up to a residence and demanded money from the homeowner, who wasn't having any of it.
The suspect's vehicle was a bluish/silver car.
Same thing happened in the ten-thousand block of Williams Road, same description, except they had lighter colored hair, again had a silverish car,, that had a second woman inside of it
Call 9-1-1 if someone knocks on your door asking for money.
One complaint tonight from the Ingham County Sheriff's Office.
There was a home invasion in the eight hundred block of South Meridian Road in Ingham Township.
A thief made off with a fur coat, jewelry, a laptop computer, and a .22 caliber pistol.

    A guy came through my neighborhood, Clifford Park, in Lansing about a week ago selling meat. Could be the same guy.
