WALKER, Mich. (WOOD) - Police are investigating an armed robbery that occurred at a cash advance store in Walker Friday morning.
It happened at Advance America Cash Advance at 4158 Lake Michigan Drive just after 10:30 a.m.
The suspect walked into the store, showed a handgun, demanded cash and then took off on foot, police said. No one was injured in the incident.
Police said the suspect was wearing a unique piece of clothing.
"He’s got a jersey-type hooded sweatshirt, like the old 80s jerseys with the sleeves cut off (at the shoulder) and then the whole front of it is white with a design on it, and the sleeves and the back of it were dark brown," said Sgt. Rob Shoemaker with the Walker Police Department.
Police said Friday that the suspect may have stashed a getaway car in the nearby neighborhoods to the east.
Friday's robbery is similar to three other armed robberies that occurred over the summer. Both the suspect descriptions and the method of operation were similar.
One occurred in June in Plainfield Township, and the other occurred in Wyoming, although two suspects were involved in the Plainfield township robbery.
