Troopers looking for man who robbed a party store with a rifle
State Troopers are looking for a suspect in an armed robbery that took place in Trufant, which is northwest of Lansing.
It happened on July 31 at 9:29 a.m. at the Trufant Gas and Party Store.
A witness told troopers that the suspect was a heavy-set white male carrying a black bolt-action hunting rifle with a scope and a green sling.
He was wearing gray sweatpants, a dark colored hooded sweatshirt, and had a bandanna over his face as a mask.
He carried a light blue bag to carry an undisclosed amount of cash out of the store.
Troopers say he was seen driving a black 2008-2012 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 full-size pickup truck, with an extended cab, no topper, with “4x4” written on the side. It had a chrome front bumper, plastic missing from the top of the tailgate, and damage to the front right bumper.
