Sterling Heights Police arrested a man after responding to a home invasion report at the 35000 block of Malibu Drive.

The resident at the location advised that suspect Joshua Ray Causey, 35, had entered into the attached garage of the residence through an unlocked side door.

Causey allegedly entered the parked vehicles that were in the garage and stole prescription medication, sunglasses and other miscellaneous items. A leaf blower was also stolen from the garage.

An evidence technician processed the scene and was able to secure fingerprint evidence that was submitted to the Michigan State Police Crime Lab. Analysis of the evidence identified Causey.

Causey was determined to be connected to a larceny from auto case that occurred in the 12000 block of Eldorado. In that case, the suspect entered an unlocked vehicle and stole loose change. The homeowner captured the incident on a video surveillance system.

The investigation and surveillance footage revealed Causey had his name tattooed on his back.
