Two Arrested, Three Sought in Rash of Battle Creek Armed Robberies
The Battle Creek Police are looking for the public's help in trying to find suspects involved in over a dozen armed robberies over the last two-plus months.
There have been 14 armed robberies since August 21st with half of them taking place in the City of Battle Creek. There were four others that took place in Springfield (under Calhoun County Sheriff's Department jurisdiction) and the remaining three in Emmett Township.
Battle Creek Police Detective Sergeant Todd Elliott addressed the media Thursday and is asking for help on finding three suspects that have been involved in multiple incidents.
One has worked alone, while the other two have worked together. The single suspect is known to wear a skull mask and brandish a metallic handgun. The pair use bandanas to cover their face.
Elliott also stated that some of the robberies are related, but investigators are still looking for leads and potential links among the robberies.
There are two suspects already in custody from the initial robbery at TJ's Party Store on Meachem Avenue on August 21st.
Below are the locations that were involved in armed robberies and also attempted robberies during the last few months.
