LAKEVIEW, Mich. (WOOD) — Michigan State Police and Lakeview police are searching for three men who took handguns from a Montcalm County sporting goods store.

It happened around 5:30 p.m. Thursday at Tamarack Sports, located within the BP gas station at 9599 N. Greenville Road near M-46 in Lakeview.

Lakeview Police Chief Darin Dood says the store was open at the time of the crime. He says the men came in, quietly took some handguns and walked out.

An MSP sergeant said “some guns” were taken, but it’s unclear how many at this time.

The Lakeview Police Department released surveillance photos of the suspects. One man was seen wearing a blue hoodie with black pants. The second was wearing a black hoodie and black pants. The third man was wearing a gray hoodie with light gray sweatpants.

Dood says the thieves are believed to be from the Grand Rapids area, based on numerous tips they’ve received.

They are believed to have left in a black SUV heading westbound on M-46. The make and model of the SUV are unknown.

Police are advising people not to approach or contact the suspects who are considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information is asked to call Montcalm County Central Dispatch at 989.831.5253 or Lakeview Police Department at 989.352.6211.
