If there is one crime that can touch almost every part of Metro Detroit, it's burglary.
It is a crime that knows no borders, one of opportunity that can strike in Detroit — but also in the upscale neighborhoods of Canton Township, Birmingham and Troy.
"The bad guys are going to go where the property and the money is," said Oakland County Undersheriff Mike McCabe.
On Monday, Livonia Police Officer Larry Nehasil was tracking a group of burglars into Walled Lake when he exchanged gunfire with one of them.
Both men were killed.
