HOWARD CITY, Mich. (WOOD) - A Lake Odessa man was arrested Thursday in connection with the armed robbery that took place at First Bank, in Howard City on Wednesday.
The 48-year-old man was taken into custody around 2:30 p.m. He was found at a rural home outside of Fremont, police said in a news release.
