The Flushing City Police blotter is a compilation of reports from the Flushing City Police Department.

Disorderly conduct with swordplay

FLUSHING — Officers were dispatched to the 400 block of Woodland Ponds Drive on April 12 for a disturbing the peace call. When police arrived at the location, they found a 39-year-old man from Flint and a woman arguing outside. According to police, the man was carrying a sword and swinging it angrily at the air. Officers detained the man and seized the sword, along with an illegal knife that was in his possession. Police said that the suspect has an extensive criminal history but was not under the influence of alcohol or drugs when the arrest was made. Flushing police have requested for the Genesee County

Prosecutor’s Office to pursue disorderly conduct and possession of illegal weapons charges against the suspect.

Police investigate car larcenies

FLUSHING — The Flushing City Police Department is investigating a series of car larcenies that happened in the city on April 6. The first case involved a car that had been broken into overnight between midnight and 6 a.m. on 300 block of River Road. The victim, a 24-year-old woman, told police that her purse had been stolen from her vehicle, along with her keys and credit cards. Police later recovered the woman’s credit cards, which had been discovered at a location on Vienna Road and M-13 in Montrose Township.

Later that day, officers also investigated car larcenies on the 600 block of Arthur Street and the 200 block of Aberdeen Court. A 20-year-old victim living on Arthur Street stated that his nine-millimeter pistol had been stolen from his vehicle overnight, while another man living on Aberdeen Court reported that his .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol and $40 in cash had been taken from his car that was parked in his garage between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. The latter victim also stated that a mountain bike, a circular saw and a chain saw had been stolen from his garage.

Flushing police have identified a suspect who they believe is responsible for all three larcenies on the same night but have not yet made an arrest, pending further investigation.

Traffic stop leads to arrest of car thieves

FLUSHING — On April 1 at 3 p.m., officers stopped the driver of a 2020 Jeep for speeding in a 25-mph zone on Main Street. When police conducted the stop and ran the car’s plates, they discovered that the vehicle was stolen. The 21-male driver and two passengers—a 21-year-old male and a 19-year-old female— were  detained by police, who verified with the Collierville Police Department that the Jeep had been stolen from Collierville, TN. One of the suspects was also wanted by U.S. Department of Homeland Security for issues involving past arrests and criminal history. Charges against the suspects are being reviewed by the Genesee County Prosecutor’s Office.
