Two teens apprehended in robbery; another sought

Two teen-agers have been apprehended on the southeast side of Grand Rapids in connection with an armed robbery at the T-Mobile store in Plainwell Thursday morning and use of a stolen car.

The firearm used in the robbery and the stolen vehicle have been recovered.

A third suspect has only been identified as a black male, possibly in his teens or early 20s, wearing a grey sweatshirt and jeans.

The two teens who were apprehended are being held at the Allegan County Youth Home pending armed robbery charges.

Authorities reported that masked individuals entered the T-Mobile store in the 1300 Block of M-89 in Plainwell, brandishing a firearm. The three fled the store in a black Ford after robbing the store of an undetermined amount of cell phones. The black Ford vehicle later was determined to be reported as stolen out of GRPD.

The suspect vehicle was located on the U.S.-131 expressway by troopers from the Michigan State Police Wayland Post who pursued the suspects into the City of Grand Rapids until the pursuit was terminated.
