Portage police arrested a 35-year-old Three Rivers man last week after he was suspected of committing an armed robbery in Kalamazoo.
The robbery occurred around 10:25 a.m. Friday at the Rite Aid drug store on East Cork Street. A witness was able to get a good look at the suspect and his vehicle, which proved to be helpful, as the man’s car was spotted driving south on U.S. 131 in Portage.
The man was stopped and arrested without incident. Police said a weapon and evidence from the robbery were found inside the vehicle. The suspect’s name was not released until his arraignment takes place in Kalamazoo County.
