Video shows men stealing from unlocked Westland vehicle
Officials are hoping to identify two men caught on surveillance footage stealing from an unlocked truck in Westland.
The theft occurred around 4:40 a.m. Jan. 2 on the 200 block of Bedford, according to the Westland Police Department.
In the video, two men approached what appeared to be a pickup. One, dressed in shorts and a hoodie, opened the unlocked driver's door and spent several minutes leaning into the vehicle, collecting unspecified items. He later crawled into the vehicle and out of sight of the camera.
A second man initially acted as lookout, dressed in long pants and a dark hat. When the first man exited the vehicle and walked away, the second suspect also leaned into the vehicle for a few seconds to collect more items.
The suspects fled in separate directions as headlights from an approaching car appeared in the upper-right corner of the frame.
The first suspect is described by police as a white man from 18 to 22 years old. He is 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10, with a thin build, dark hair, glasses and a beard. He was wearing glasses, a hooded sweatshirt, shorts and multicolored shoes.
The second suspect is described by police as a black man from 18 to 22 years old. He is 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-8, with a thin build and no facial hair. He was wearing a knit cap, a Carhartt-style jacket and pants.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Westland police at (734) 722-9600 or (734) 467-3250.
