Suspect Arrested In Reeves Equipment Theft

Detroit police are questioning a man in the theft of about $100,000 worth of recording equipment and other items from a house owned by Motown great Martha Reeves after some of the missing gear turned up at a pawnshop.

Police spokesman James Tate said the 27-year-old man was arrested at his home May 8th.

The pawnshop owner alerted police that the store had received microphones and other gear with Reeves’ name on them.

The seller’s thumbprint and identification were then turned over to authorities.

Reeves doesn’t live at the home but it is reportedly used for community meetings and watched over by a caretaker.
