NEW BOSTON, MI – On December 7, 2015, The Huron Township Police Department Patrol Staff, Detective Bureau, and Evidence Tech Unit, responded to the 31900 block of Pennsylvania Road for the report of a Home Invasion. Video footage from the incident was recovered and sent out to multiple media outlets.
With the public’s help, one of the individuals in the video footage has been identified as Chad Edward Whitley. We are once again seeking the public’s assistance in locating and speaking to this individual. A warrant has been issued for the arrest of the suspect. Whitley will be charged with:
- Count #1: Home Invasion – A Building with intent. 15 year Felony
- Count #2: Malicious Destruction of Property
- Count #3: Habitual Offender – Fourth Offense Notice
“We have reason to believe that Mr. Whitley is well aware if the fact that we are looking to speak with him and may be in hiding. My hope is that he will voluntarily turn himself in or get in contact with us to make arrangements with us so that this can be done in a safe manner for everyone. I will personally take his call as will any of our officers. We just want him to do the right thing and contact us.”
“I know I say this repeatedly, but this is another example of the police department and the residents working together to keep our Township safe. We never lose sight of the fact that our success is many times dependent on the relationship that we have with the community and their willingness to help. We were able to identify this subject based on several tips from concerned citizens. We hope that if Mr. Whitley does not decide to turn himself in, someone will call us and help us take him into custody safely.”
“It has been a busy week for our staff, but they continue to come through and deliver quality service to our residents. I am proud of the work they do each and every day.” -Chief Everette Robbins
