Man jailed on parole violation after University of Michigan police find marijuana
An Ypsilanti man was jailed Monday on a parole violation after University of Michigan police officers searched his apartment and found a half-pound of marijuana, university police spokeswoman Diane Brown said.
Officers were led to the 24-year-old's North River Street apartment in Ypsilanti after executing a search warrant at his brother's apartment on the same street during an investigation into a June car break-in, Brown said.
While the search was under way, the man appeared to be removing items from the home, Brown said.
He gave officers consent to search his apartment down the street, where the drugs and drug paraphernalia were found, police said.
The original investigation involved a June 10 car break-in at the University of Michigan Matthaei Botanical Gardens. A purse and bank cards were taken.
The investigation is ongoing, police said.
