Police search for two in armed robbery
CALUMET – Police are on the lookout for two suspects who allegedly robbed two men at gunpoint in Watton last week, according to Michigan State Police from the Calumet Post.
Two white males are accused of pretending they were U.S. marshals. They demanded $10,000 ransom money from family members and threatened to shoot the two victims if the demands were not met, said troopers.
The two suspects allegedly robbed the individuals at around 4:50 p.m. Thursday then fled the scene in a white Cadillac Escalade pickup truck heading east on M-28, said troopers. The victims were not harmed in the incident, but were robbed of a handgun and wallets containing personal information.
One suspect is described as a white male in his late 20s, 6-foot tall, and 185 pounds with a dark complexion. He is said to have teal green eyes, short brown hair, and a short light-colored goatee mustache. He was wearing a white shirt with a brown, blue and red horizontal stripe across the chest. The other suspect is said to be a 5-foot, 8-inch-tall, 165-pound white male in his early 20s. He has a dark complexion, brown hair, and was wearing a black sweatshirt and red jogging pants.
Anyone with information on the armed robbery, the suspects, or the vehicle is asked to contact the Calumet Post at (906) 337-5145 or Negaunee Regional Dispatch at (906) 337-2211.
