A couple of suspects tangled with the wrong business on Oct. 9, when they were observed trying to break into I-deal Optics in Ferndale, located here as seen on Yahoo! Maps. The eyeglass shop is near Hilton Rd. and East Nine Mile. Police allegedly observed Mark Alonzo Slappy, 40 and Eric Larondo Hunt, 35 staking out the spot. One of the men got out and went so far as to remove a screen while the other backed the car up.
Slappy, who lives in Southfield, has a criminal record and was jailed on a $50,000 bond. Hunt, living in Clinton Township, received a $1,500 bond.
