STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. – Sterling Heights Police say three men kidnapped several teenage boys and threatened to cut off their toes and fingers for allegedly stealing medical marijuana plants. Investigators say it happened at a home in the 13000 block of Canal on Monday. The homeowner, a 45-year old man, said his home where he grows medicinal marijuana plants was burglarized several days earlier, but he didn’t report the incident to police. Instead, investigators said the man used his 15-year old son to lure six boys, ages 15-16, whom they believed to have been involved in the burglary, to his house. The boys were told they would get an ounce of marijuana for free if they came. The teens all attend Dakota High School with the homeowner’s son.
Once the teens were inside the house, the man and two of his acquaintances, also 45-year old men, took them to the basement and bound them with duct tape. Investigators said the men then held a circular power saw to the face of one victim and threatened to cut off their toes and fingers. At least one teen was pistol-whipped. Victims were also hit with the cover of a samurai sword. Police were alerted after one boy escaped and called his mother who called police. Another boy was also able to get away, but four teens were found when police arrived around 1:45 on Monday afternoon. One of the teens has a possible broken arm, and the other three have less serious injuries, including cuts and bruises. The suspects were taken into custody and could face several felony charges. The Macomb County Prosecutor is currently reviewing the file.
