Michigan State Police troopers arrested three men near Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport after they allegedly robbed a bank in Jackson and were spotted driving through Washtenaw County by an Ann Arbor police detective.
Michigan State Police Sgt. Chris Pascoe said the three men are the prime suspects in a robbery at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday at a Citizen’s Bank in Jackson, 1712 E. Michigan Ave. Two men fled the area in a white Ford Bronco with an undisclosed amount of money, according to a report in the Jackson Citizen Patriot.
An Ann Arbor police detective in an unmarked car, alerted by a “be on the lookout” call, spotted the suspects' vehicle, Pascoe said.
The detective then radioed state police troopers, who pursued the suspects through the rest of Washtenaw County, eventually making the arrests near the airport in Wayne County.
The Citizen Patriot reported the bank robbery suspects were armed with handguns.
Pascoe said all of the money was recovered during the traffic stop.
Ann Arbor police provided back up for the state police troopers while they made the arrest. The two agencies are now working with the Jackson Police Department on the rest of the investigation.
Pascoe was still working to find out details of the pursuit and was not sure about the speeds involved in the chase or details of how the traffic stop took place.
More information was expected on the stop later Tuesday afternoon.
