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.

Man enters wrong home while intoxicated
Joshua Clark Vann
A Solon Township man is facing charges of third degree home invasion after he entered the wrong home while intoxicated and became aggressive toward the homeowner.
According to Cedar Springs Police Chief Roger Parent, Officer Jason Schaefer responded to a home invasion on Sarah Street in Cedar Springs Mobile Estates on Wednesday, October 7, at 5:30 p.m. Upon arrival, he heard voices inside the mobile home, with one person sounding very upset. Officer Schaefer entered and confronted the intruder, Joshua Clark Vann, 30, of Solon Township, who was intoxicated and arguing with the homeowner through a closed bedroom door.
After the suspect was arrested and placed into the patrol car, Officer Schaefer interviewed the homeowner. He learned that the suspect entered and confronted the homeowner but would not leave when he clearly knew he was not inside his friend’s house. It appears the address he was looking for may have had the same house numbers, but he was on the wrong street.
The 19-year-old homeowner said he was able to get the man outside but was then chased by the intruder, and the man then followed him back inside the mobile home. At one point, he said Vann was grabbing at him and threatening to assault him.
The homeowner’s wife was able to grab her purse and retreated to the rear bedroom calling for help. The two of them were holding the bedroom door closed to keep the subject from getting into their bedroom when the police arrived.
Due to the unusual circumstances, Officer Schaefer removed the subject from the scene and sough a warrant for Home Invasion 3rd Degree, a 5-year felony. This charge requires the suspect to have entered a home being occupied and committing a misdemeanor violation once inside. In this case he did not enter to steal but committed a simple assault by grabbing the homeowner and threatening him.
Van was arrested on Tuesday, October 13. He was arraigned in 63rd District Court, Rockford on Wednesday, October 14. His bond was set at $3,000 cash/surety, and his preliminary exam was scheduled for October 28 at 10 a.m.
