Lansing police say a teen and an adult will be arraigned later today for an alleged robbery early Sunday morning.

At 12:07 a.m. Sunday, a boy with a bandana entered a Tim Horton's restaurant on the 2000 block of North Larch. He was wearing a bandana over his face and had a gun, and demanded cash from an employee. He left after the money was handed to him.

Police went looking for the thief after talking with the employee. The suspect, a 15-year-old boy from Durand, was caught at Polly and John, a few blocks away. The money was recovered and the gun was confiscated.

Police later learned that a 32-year-old Lansing man, who was a family friend of the teen, was also involved. He was arrested after being found on the 2200 block of Turner.

Both suspects are expected to be arraigned today. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
