GREENVILLE — A robber swiped a handful of valuables from Huch’s Fine Jewelry in downtown Greenville this afternoon.
The suspect entered the store at 212 S. Lafayette St. and asked to look at some items around 1:10 p.m. He then distracted the employees and grabbed an undisclosed amount of jewelry before fleeing out the back door.
Police believe the suspect did not have a weapon.
The suspect is described as a male in his 20s about 5-foot-11, 200 pounds with a two-day facial hair growth, black Under Armour hat with a white logo, red hooded sweatshirt, dark hair and a dark colored jacket.
The suspect was last seen heading east from the store toward Clay Street. Police believe he may have been on a deck behind a house on Webster Street between Cass and Grove streets.
The Montcalm County Sheriff’s Office K9 team is responding to attempt tracking the suspect from that house. Police also searched Dumpsters in the area around the store.
“We’re doing everything we can,” said Greenville Public Safety Director Mike Stuck. “The investigation is continuing.”
Stuck “does not have an idea” whether today’s robbery is related to the armed robbery at Huntington Bank on Nov. 9.
