GRAND HAVEN, Mich. — Multiple schools were briefly locked down as Grand Haven police search for a man involved in a robbery at a credit union Tuesday morning.
Officers responded just before 10:20 a.m. to the Lake Michigan Credit Union on Jackson Avenue.
They asked Ferry Elementary, White Pines Middle School, Griffin Elementary and Grand Haven Christian Schools to lock down until officers were satisfied the robber was no longer in the area and neighborhoods were safe.
LMCU staff told police the man entered the building, approached a teller and spoke of filling a bag with money.
No weapon was seen or implied.
The man left with an undetermined amount of cash.
He was described as a Black man about 6’ tall in a gray hoodie with a black or navy blue jacket, a black beanie hat, dark pants and red shoes.
Police initially thought he fled in a silver 2000s Ford Taurus or Mercury Sable with damage to the rear bumper, but later determined the vehicle was involved in a different, nearby incident and not related to the robbery.
Anyone with information should contact Ottawa County Central Dispatch.
