Surveillance photos: from Kent County Sheriff's Office, 5-11-2019.

KENT COUNTY, Mich. — The Kent County Sheriff’s Office told FOX 17 a suspect is in custody and currently being held at the Kent County Jail. The suspect’s name has not been released, pending  arraignment.

Earlier this weekend they released two surveillance images from an armed robbery Friday night at a store near Rockford.

Deputies say they responded around 9:55 p.m. Friday to Bailey’s General Store, 6051 Belding Road N.E. in Cannon Charter Township. That’s west of Egypt Valley Avenue, just south of Lake Bella Vista.

The Sheriff’s office says the clerk reported that a man armed with a knife demanded money from the clerk – and after he got it – took off in a red four-door Dodge Ram pickup.

The suspect was described as a possibly Asian or Hispanic male, standing approximately 5 feet, 5 inches tall with a larger build. He was wearing eyeglasses, a gray hooded sweatshirt, jean shorts, and black and white tennis shoes with yellow laces in the left shoe and black laces in the right shoe.  

Anyone with any information is being asked to contact the Kent County Sheriff’s Office or Silent Observer at (616) 774-2345
