2 Kent County armed robberies appear to be related

ADA, Mich. — Authorities say two Sunday morning armed robberies in Kent County appear to be connected.

Dispatchers with the Kent County Sheriff’s Department say that at 7:20 a.m. Sunday deputies responded to a report of an armed robbery at St. Robert of Newminster Parish in the 6000 block of Ada Drive.

The victim was arriving at the church when she was approached by a 52-year-old woman armed with a knife. The suspect was scared off by other people arriving in the parking lot and fled the scene.

No injuries were reported during the incident.

Deputies located the suspect vehicle a short time later a short distance away from the church. A traffic stop was conducted and the female suspect was taken into custody.

Deputies also confirmed for FOX 17 that another armed robbery occurred earlier in the morning at about 6:30 a.m. Sunday near Clyde Park and 28th Street in Wyoming. The Kent County Sheriff’s Department said both investigations are ongoing, but that “it appears that the two cases are connected, as they involve the same suspect.”

    The two cases appear to be connected because they involve the same suspect? I’d say that’s about as connected as you can get.
