A suspect in a home invasion Sunday in Macomb Township was arraigned Monday after an arrest Sunday, according to Macomb County Sheriff's Officials.
According to the department, Anthony Joseph Leone, 38, of Macomb Township, was arraigned at 1:30 p.m. Monday at 41A District Court in Shelby Township.
Deputies from the Macomb County Sheriff's Department arrived at 4:51 a.m. to a home in the 46000 block of Albany for a report of a home invasion in progress, the department indicated. The elderly homeowner called his daughter to report someone was in his house, and the daughter then called 911.
When deputies arrived, they spotted a man dressed in all dark clothing in the driveway, who fled from the scene as the deputies approached. The man was arrested at 21 Mile and Rosemary in Macomb Township and the man reportedly sustained a cut on his hand.
The 81-year-old homeowner told deputies he awoke to use the bathroom and saw a man crouched down in front of his kitchen sink. The homeowner confronted the man, who apologized and then fled the home. According to the department, the man appeared to have pried away a screen on a window in the rear of the home, then broke a basement window to enter the home, cutting himself in the process. Blood, apparently from the man's injury, was found throughout the home.
The man admitted breaking into the home to search for prescription drugs. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment to the cut on his hand and was then taken to the Macomb County Jail.
Leone is charged with first-degree home invasion, possession of burglary tools and possession of analogues. He was given a $10,000 cash-or-surety bond and remains lodged at Macomb County Jail. His next court date is Dec. 12.
