CHESTERFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Six people were arrested Thursday in connection with a robbery at an apartment complex in Chesterfield Township.

Police were called around 12:20 p.m. Thursday to the Georgetown Apartment Complex in the 28100 block of Raleigh Crescent. A resident told police there were several men running from the apartment complex to a brown Buick with a flat screen television.

A Chesterfield Township officer saw the Buick heading west on I-94 as it passed 21 Mile Road and stopped it on the shoulder of the freeway.

The officer found three men in the back seat with a 60-inch flat screen television across their laps.

The three men and two women in the front of the car were taken into custody without incident. Police also found another man, Kelvin Horton, 22, of Chesterfield Township, hiding in the trunk of the Buick with a laptop taken from the apartment complex.

Police said when the group was running from the apartment complex, they realized the television wouldn't fit in the trunk, so Horton offered to ride back there.

All six people were charged with second-degree home invasion, which carries a maximum sentence of 15 years behind bars. They are being held at the Macomb County Jail on bail ranging from $3,000 to $20,000.

A parole detainer was placed on Derrick Crawford, 20, of Clinton Township. He is currently on parole.

Horton, Demetrius Johnson, 20, Ezekiel Bryant, 19, and Rayven Stewart, 19, are all from Chesterfield Township.

Crawford and Nicole Ezerkis, 20, are from Clinton Township.
