DEARBORN — Police are asking residents who are missing personal items to come forward and claim their belongings after the arrest of two men led to recovery of evidence.
Garry Saunders, 37, of River Rouge and Antonio Barry, 35, of Harper Woods were arrested for home invasions in seven metropolitan Detroit cities, including Trenton, Harper Woods and Eastpointe.
Just before Noon Sept. 14, police responded to the 2000 block of Gulley for a break-in. Victims described the intruders as two black men who were driving an older model Jaguar.
With the suspect descriptions and further investigation, it was determined that Saunders and Barry also committed break-ins in neighboring communities.
Search warrants were executed at the homes of both where numerous suspected stolen items were recovered. Items included signed sports memorabilia, laptop computers, jewelry, guns, speakers, televisions, headphones, coins and headaches.
Dearborn police are working with area agencies to identify the owners of the recovered property.
Sanders and Barry were charged in 19th District Court with second degree home invasion and habitual offender fourth offense. Judge Mark Somers set their bond at $500,000 cash each and required GPS tethers if the men posted bond.
A probable cause conference is set for 9 a.m. Sept. 30, and a preliminary examination of the evidence against them is scheduled for 9 a.m. Oct. 7.
