The suspect from the armed robbery is still at large. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call GRPD at 616-456-3400 or Silent Observer at 616-774-2345.

    The police cruiser is obviously in the center lain going around traffic stopped at the light at Alger and Division. Why would the SUV turn into the center lain when the police cruiser was already there? Another case of someone having a driver license that shouldn’t.
