Michigan Central Station clock returned by thief
Anonymous person returns clock
DETROIT – A clock from the Michigan Central Station was anonymously returned after two decades of being missing.
An anonymous call from the person who had the clock to the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn helped lead to the clock being recovered.
Text messages were then sent back and forth by the anonymous person and Ford Motor Land Development Corp. The thief admitted they had the clock and left it leaning against a building on Lawton, between Warren and Buchanan.
The clock was then successfully recovered by Ford employees.
