Wilke told WWJ they're investigating two specific cases at this time, but they believe there could be more connected crimes.

"If we were actually able to obtain information on two of these cases and have the same suspects, it just stands to reason that they very well might be responsible for more," Wilke said.

Wike said there is a lesson to be learned here: Lock your car doors.

"In a vast majority of cases where things are stolen from automobiles are cases in which people leave their doors unlocked," he said. "And in many of these cases when somebody comes around and finds a locked door they go on to the next car and nothing's stolen from that car."

No further details about the alleged crimes – including a time-frame or specifics about the locations – were immediately released.

Anyone who can identify any or all of these suspects is asked to call Westland Police Detective Jon Torolski at 734-467-7914.
