The Mount Pleasant police department has been busy with a rash of armed robberies that have taken place in the city in the past few days.
The most recent incident happened at a Subway restaurant on Mission Avenue near Mosher Street around 11 p.m. Sunday night. The suspect is being described as a hispanic, white or possibly native American male, between 5 feet, 7 inches and 5 feet, 9 inches with a thin build.
Police also responded to a robbery at the Next Door Food Store at 1324 West High Street. The suspect entered the store with a handgun and left with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Another robbery happened at the Advance America Cash Advance at 1717 South Mission Avenue. Another incident took place at another Next Door Food Store location at 2015 East Remus Road in Union Township.
Mount Pleasant Police spokesperson Jeff Thompson said that the similarity of the robberies has led the department to believe the incidents may be related.
If you have any information on any of these robberies, you're urged to contact the Mount Pleasant Police Department at 989-779-9111.
