OTTAWA COUNTY, Mich. — One of the men suspected of an armed robbery at a Peppino’s restaurant was arraigned Wednesday.
Brad Scott Bree, 31, is being charged with larceny of a firearm, per online jail records. He and a 27-year-old man from Kent County were arrested Friday on warrants unrelated to the August 31 armed robbery at the Allendale Peppino’s Sports Grill on Lake Michigan Drive.

Bree is being held on a $500,000 cash bond.
The investigation continues. Deputies say charges pertaining to the armed robbery are in the works.
