On June 2, warrants were secured on Williams.

Williams was charged with three felonies - breaking and entering, safecracking, and larceny.

Officers also served several outstanding warrants against Williams.

Williams received a $115,000 secured bond for all charges and was left in the custody of the Wayne County Jail.
