DETROIT (AP) — More than three dozen stolen packages have been found in a vehicle stopped by Detroit police as part of a hit-and-run crash investigation.

Detroit police say a man flagged down officers about 3:40 a.m. Wednesday on the city’s westside and told them the driver of a van had fled after a crash.

Officers later spotted the van and stopped it. While speaking with the driver they noticed a large number of packages — 41 in all — in the van. Police said the driver could not provide a good explanation for the packages.

The packages were addressed to homes in Farmington and Farmington Hills, west of Detroit.

The van’s driver was arrested.
