BEDFORD TOWNSHIP, MI – On Friday, January 15th, 2016, Monroe County Sheriff Dale Malone reported an armed robbery and home invasion that occurred within the Northtowne Meadows Mobile Home Community, located at 6255 South Telegraph Road in Bedford Township. A 15-year-old girl, who was not the intended target, was robbed at gunpoint.
Deputies and Detectives continued to work tips and leads, and as a result, a suspect was developed. On January 20, 2016, one of the suspects was arrested based on a felony warrant for another robbery and home invasion he is suspected of committing at the same home with similar circumstances as this recent report. That incident occurred during the month of December 2015 but went unreported until this most recent investigation. Detectives believe there is a direct connection to both robberies.
The name of the suspect is being withheld pending arraignment in 1st District Court.
Detectives are continuing the investigation into both robberies and home invasions. Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office Detective Bureau at 734-240-7530.
