There was another robbery in Cedar Springs Saturday night, December 29.

According to the Cedar Springs Police, a man in a puffy gray jacket with a stocking cap pulled down over his face walked into the Kent Theatre about 10 p.m. and demanded money. He got an undisclosed amount of cash from the concession stand and grabbed the donation can before fleeing on foot.

Cedar Springs Police were on an alarm call at the school but responded to the scene within two minutes. Rockford Police and a tracking dog from the Grand Rapids Police Department assisted the CSPD in searching for the suspect. They tracked him down the alley off Cherry Street, where he jumped a fence and ran into a yard on First Street. Tracks led up to the house and then went back to the road, where the dog lost the scent. The people in the home cooperated with police and let them inside to search the premises but nothing was found.

Police did find the top of the donation can and some coins near where the suspect jumped the fence.

The historic Kent Theatre is a  non-profit and run by volunteers.

It was just a week ago that the Admiral Gas station was also robbed.

    $2048 DOLLARS A DAY TO HAVE A POLICE DEPARTMENT IN CEDAR SPRINGS. IF THEY CAN’T KEEP US SAFE THEN THE AMOUNT STOLEN AND DAMAGES COSTS SHOULD COME OUT OF THE POLICE DEPARTMENT BUDGET. I NO LONGER FEEL SAFE LIVING IN CEDAR SPRINGS. STEVE HOROWITZ

    I don’t know because I no longer live there, but both the Admiral and the kent theater are on Main street. So is the police station, how is it possible that all the robberies happen on the street the police are on? I know they are there to harass people coming out of the Bar!
