MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. – A Macomb County couple has been cleaning up by illegally peddling $550 Dyson vacuum cleaners on the Internet for $300, police said.
Darin and Tina Young of Macomb Township stole $24,000 worth of items from local stores, including 63 Dyson vacuums, and sold them on eBay and other Internet sites, authorities said.
The Macomb Area Computer Enforcement Team unit of the sheriff's department arrested 38-year-old Tina Young and her 37-year-old husband last week.
Tina Young was arraigned Tuesday on two counts of larceny over $1,000 but under $20,000, and her husband was arraigned on one such charge. Conviction carries up to 5 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Each was released on bond pending a preliminary hearing Oct. 20. Sheriff's officials said they don't know if the Youngs have attorneys.
