GUN PLAIN TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Two teens are in custody after an armed robbery and police chase across two West Michigan counties.

The Allegan County Sheriff’s Office says deputies were called to an armed robbery at the T-Mobile store on M-89 in Plainwell.

Deputies say three people wearing masks entered the store brandishing a firearm and took an undetermined number of cell phones.

The sheriff’s office says the armed robbers then took off in a stolen vehicle.

The suspects were spotted by Michigan State Police heading north on US-131. Troopers say they tried to pull the vehicle over, but the suspects kept driving.

The vehicle was later found in front of a Grand Rapids home, and two teens were taken into custody. They are being held at the Allegan County Youth Home pending armed robbery charges.

Deputies are still looking for the third individual believed to be involved. He’s described as a Black man in his teens or early 20s wearing a grey sweatshirt and jeans.

If you have any information about the location or identity of the third suspect, contact the Allegan County Sheriff’s Office or Silent Observer at SilentObserver@allegancounty.org.
