Two weeks ago the Post ran surveillance photos of the suspects that committed an armed robbery in the early morning hours of Wednesday, July 27, at the Circle K gas station at 4811 West River Drive, in Plainfield Township.

Last week, the Kent County Sheriff’s Department arrested three male suspects in the robbery and charged them with armed robbery and conspiracy to commit armed robbery.

Gabriel Taylor 21; Emilio Melton, 19; and Javier Hernandez, 17, have all been arraigned, and their bonds were set at $100,000. All are currently residing in the Kent County jail.

Two of the suspects reportedly entered the store about 4:40 a.m. armed with a gun and masks over their faces, and demanded money from the clerk before fleeing in a getaway car. No shots were fired during the robbery and no one was injured.

Teens face charges in armed robbery

Two more teens have been arrested in connection with an attempted armed robbery in Cedar Springs Mobile Estates last December.

According to Cedar Springs Police Chief Roger Parent, Joshua Philip Gohn, 18, and Landon James Eadie, 18, both of Cedar Springs, were charged with accessory after the fact to a felony, which is a five-year felony.

Gohn reportedly drove the car, and Eadie was a passenger in the car the night that Joshua Steven Monroe, 19, and Ryan Lee Nagle, 20, went into the mobile home of a 42-year-old man and 41-year-old woman with a shotgun and demanded money and prescription medication. A struggle occurred, with the male victim suffering injuries to his face and nose. The suspects then fled without obtaining anything. The victims knew one of the suspects, which helped police track them down. Both Monroe and Nagle were arraigned on charges of assault with intent to commit armed robbery, and conspiracy to commit armed robbery. Parent said that Gohn and Eadie were charged because they had prior knowledge of what was going to take place. Both turned themselves into Officer Paul Feutz on Friday, February 3, and were lodged at the Kent County Jail. Both received a $10,000 cash/surety bond.
