A Michigan sheriff warned residents of affluent Oakland County that recent burglaries in the area are believed to be tied to crime rings from South America.
Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard told reporters on September 29, that it is believed “transnational organized crime groups” from Columbia and Chile are behind a recent series of burglaries in upscale neighborhoods.
Bouchard slammed the recent burglaries on poor border policies under the Biden administration, as well as the Visa Waiver Program that criminals take advantage of.

“More and more the conclusion is pretty obvious – these are transnational gangs that are involved in this that come from South America looking to do burglaries and violate our communities, not just in Oakland County, but across America,” Bouchard said at a press conference.
Bouchard warned residents of luxurious neighborhoods in the state to take more precautions when it comes to their valuables, and if they “see something, say something”
“If you have a home safe, make sure it’s well-anchored because these people come in with pry bars. And if they can carry away your safe, they will,” Bouchard said.
“These people are going after jewelry, high-end purses and watches, currency and safes. They typically hit homes from 5 to 9 p.m., they seem to want houses where nobody’s home and they usually come in through windows in the back,” he concluded.
