Suspect arraigned in February home invasion

Jerry Ryan Ashley was arraigned on Friday, April 12, at the 48th District Court in front of magistrate Julie Nelson-Klein in regards to a home invasion he was arrested for this past February.

Back on February 28, Bloomfield Township police were dispatched to the 5500 block of Raven Road for a home invasion, where several personal items and cash had been taken. The home’s owner had recently passed away on February 25. Police determined his house had been broken into between February 19-27.

The next day, February 29, Bloomfield Township police were contacted by a Grosse Pointe Woods Public Safety detective that they had taken Ashley into custody for home invasion. While the search warrant was being executed in Ashley’s home by Grosse Pointe Woods, they discovered several items, including a Presidential Task Force Coin and letter addressed to the Bloomfield Township victim on Raven Road.

A Bloomfield Township police detective interviewed Ashely, who said he had done yard work for the victim a year ago, and while reading the obituaries had discovered that he had died. Upon seeing that, Ashley broke into the home and took items so he could support his drug habit. 

Bloomfield Township police submitted the investigation for review to the Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office, which issued a one-count felony warrant for breaking and entering a building with intent.

Ashley’s bond was set at $250,000 on Friday April 12, and he is still in custody for the Grosse Pointe Woods home invasions.
