Deputies search for suspects after Jenison cellphone store break-in

Ottawa County

GEORGETOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Police are looking for a group of people who robbed a cellphone store.

The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department says it happened around 2:30 p.m. Friday at the Verizon store on Cottonwood Drive between Baldwin Street and Chicago Drive in Jenison.

Employees say five or six men walked into the store, demanded cash and took other items then left. A patrol vehicle was nearby and watched an SUV leave the area and started to pursue the vehicle.

The pursuit continued to the Kent County border, where it was called off because of high speed and heavy traffic.

Detectives are working with other departments in the region who are investigating similar incidents.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Ottawa County Sheriffs Office or Silent Observer at 1.877.88.SILENT.
