Two arrests made followed armed robbery

Two Sturgis residents were arrested following their alleged involvement in an armed robbery earlier this week in Three Rivers.

Three Rivers officers were called shortly before 4 a.m. Tuesday to the 400 block of 8th Avenue in response to an armed robbery.

During their investigation, officers were advised by the St. Joseph County Sheriff’s Department that the suspect vehicle was located. After a pursuit into Mottville Township, the vehicle stopped on North River Road, near Hebron Road.

The driver, a 25-year-old Sturgis woman, was taken into custody. The male passenger, a 28-year-old Sturgis resident, fled on foot.

He then stole a vehicle from a business on Hebron Road and was pursued into Cass County. The vehicle crashed on U.S. 12, near Five Points Road.

Charges against both suspects will be sought from the St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office.
