GREENVILLE — A Greenville man was arrested Tuesday on charges related to the Handy Market robbery that occurred on Dec. 6.

Trevor Lee Remelts, 22, of Greenville, was located by Greenville Department of Public Safety officers and Montcalm County Sheriff’s deputies at about 8 p.m. Tuesday in Eureka Township.

Remelts was arraigned Wednesday on charges of unarmed robbery — a 15-year felony, larceny in a building — a four-year felony, and being a habitual offender-second notice (felony).

Debbie Edmaiston, of Gowen, was working her late-night shift at the Handy Market in Greenville, located at 813 S. Lafayette St., when a man wearing a mask told her to get behind the counter at approximately 6:30 p.m.

The suspect was familiar to Edmaiston, but she could not place him.

“It’s someone who has been here before,” Edmaiston told The Daily News in December. “He was very familiar. I recognized that voice. I have seen him before.”

Edmaiston was not hurt during the robbery and the suspect took about $200.

The case was presented to the Montcalm County prosecutor’s office and a warrant was issued on Monday for Remelts’ arrest.

Remelts is lodged at the Montcalm County Jail and bond was set at $15,000.
