Cedar Springs Police are still searching for the person who robbed the Admiral Gas Station, at the corner of Main and Muskegon Street, Tuesday, August 9.
According to Cedar Springs Police Chief Roger Parent, the initial description was of a middle-aged male, but after viewing video footage, he doesn’t believe the robber was middle-aged. “This is a small frame 5-foot-6-inch person, wearing a scarf around his neck to cover his identity. He wore his blue jeans low and baggy like a younger person,” noted Parent. He was also described as having a raspy, or smoker’s voice.
The robber walked into the store about 8:20 p.m. and demanded cash. No weapon was seen, but he kept his hand inside his front pocket, implying he had a weapon. The female clerk on duty gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of cash, and the suspect then walked out of the store and headed north. Police believe a getaway car may have been waiting, since a Chevy Tahoe or Suburban was seen speeding west on Cherry into the dead-end, and then turned around and sped back east, in the minutes after the robbery.
