Suspects arrested for Admiral robbery

Four suspects were arrested Thursday evening after allegedly robbing both a store in Newaygo County, and the Admiral gas station in Cedar Springs.

According to Detective Sergeant Scott Rios, of the Michigan State Police Newaygo Post, they responded to a call of a robbery with a knife at Gillette’s Trading Post, on Mason Drive/M-37, in Ashland Township, near Grant about 9:15 p.m. May 13. The suspects then allegedly drove to the Admiral gas station in Cedar Springs, at the corner of Main and Muskegon Streets.

According to Cedar Springs Police Roger Parent, Officer Chad Tucker responded to an armed robbery at Admiral at about 9:59 p.m. A man reportedly walked in and pulled a knife on the female clerk and told her, “I don’t want to hurt you. Just give me all your money.” The suspect then fled. A customer that heard the clerk scream that she was just robbed followed the vehicle, and then shortly returned to the scene with a license plate number.

The Kent County Sheriff Department sent out a broadcast alerting law enforcement that an armed robbery with similar suspect information had taken place earlier in Newaygo County. Then, at 10:10 p.m., the KCSD saw a vehicle matching the description at North County Store on Old 14 Mile at Lincoln Lake. One individual was in the store, and the other three were in the car. It is unknown whether they were planning to rob that store, but officers were able to connect the group with the other two robberies, and they were all taken into custody. They were questioned at the Rockford State Police Post, then transported and lodged in the Newaygo County Jail.

The suspects will be arraigned Friday in 78th District Court in White Cloud, for the Newaygo robbery, and then possibly on Monday for the Cedar Springs robbery.

    You know it is a shame. When I grew up in Cedar these problems were restricted to Grand Rapids. It seems more often now that crimes like these are happening more and more in our neck of the woods:(
