GRPDGRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A boyfriend and girlfriend were taken into custody early Monday morning, after police say they worked together to stage an armed robbery at a Little Caesar’s restaurant.

Officers were called to the location at 1245 Leonard NW shortly after 12:30 a.m.  The girl working there told them that a man had come in, implied he had a weapon, and robbed the place.

Police were able to track him down and arrest him not far from the scene.  That’s when they learned he was dating the employee who reported the robbery, and now say the whole robbery was staged.

Both the suspect and the worker were arrested.
