MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (WOOD) - Authorities have charged a suspect in one of a string of recent armed robberies near Central Michigan University's campus.
Vincent M. Belmarez was arraigned Thursday in Mount Pleasant, and jailed on a $950,000 bond, according to a news release from the Isabella County Sheriff's Department.
