“Witnesses said a gun was placed to the temple of a victim and pointed at several other customers who were robbed of their personal belongings," said Director of Public Safety Jeff Hawke.

The great work of all involved Officers and Detectives took these individuals off the street and has made the West Michigan Region safer for everyone.”
