Van stolen in dry cleaner uniform robbery used in smash and grabs
DETROIT (WJBK) - Police say a van involved in a uniform heist last week has been involved in another crime.
Detroit Police say a 3-man crew in a stolen white GMC van crashed into a liquor store on the city's west side early Tuesday morning. Police say the license plate number of the van is CE82871 -- the same license plate stolen from Perfect Cleaners last week.
On Friday, the suspects stole two vans from Perfect Cleaners. Inside the vans were dozens of police and fire uniforms from Novi and Farmington Hills.
The uniforms were recovered a few hours later, dumped on the side of the road. The two vans are still missing.
