Detectives with the Kent County Sheriff Department have arrested Michael Scott Houston, 37, from Rockford, in connection with recent armed robberies.
Investigators were able to match a face on surveillance footage with a name they got through a tip from Silent Observer.
Houston, who is currently on parole for armed robbery, was arrested on Friday, December 9, by Sheriff Dept. Investigators. Detectives believe Houston, who is charged with holding up the Clark Gas Station on 28th St. in Cascade Twp, on November 29, may also have robbed a Shell Gas Station in Grand Rapids. Detectives from both agencies are working together on these separate robberies.
Houston has been charged with Armed Robbery, Felony Firearm, Felony Larceny and a Parole Detainer and is being held on a $95,000 bond.
