Marco’s Pizza Employees Help Catch Armed Robbery Suspects

LANSING — Two Marco’s Pizza employees aided in the apprehension of three armed robbery suspects after the eatery was held up at gunpoint Sunday night. Police were called shortly before 8 p.m. Sunday to the pizzeria, located in the 2900 block of North East Street, in response to the armed robbery, said Lansing police Sgt. Brian Bakos.

Employees told police a man entered the store, brandished a gun and demanded cash. Two employees followed the get-away vehicle, which contained three men, and relayed information to police. The vehicle stopped in the 1500 block of Redwood Street, about three miles away, where one suspect fled on foot and the other two entered a residence there, Bakos said. A police canine track led to the arrest of the man who fled on foot, and police arrested the other two at the residence. The Lansing men — two 28-year-olds and a 27-year-old — are being held at the Lansing jail.
