Police are thanking the public for their help identifying an armed robbery suspect.

The robbery happened during the morning hours of Tuesday, Aug. 15 at the Beacon & Bridge Market located at the intersection of M-30 and M-61 in Gladwin County.

Surveillance video of the incident shows a man wearing a black hoody, faded blue jeans, and a black mask covering his face, walk into the convenience store and go behind the counter. The female clerk appears to try and stop the man as he attempts to steal items, grabbing him by the shoulders and dragging him out from behind the counter. 

The Gladwin County Sheriff’s Office said the suspect was armed with a knife during the robbery. It's unclear whether anyone was hurt in the incident.

The man left the area heading northbound on M-30 in a dark colored pickup with a red in color topper. The pickup was described by witnesses as a smaller Chevy S-10 or Ford Ranger type truck.

"Thanks to a tip from a concerned citizen, a vehicle has been located and a legitimate suspect has been identified," the sheriff's office said.

Stolen property and evidence were recovered, linking the suspect to the crime, the sheriff's office said.

On Aug. 23, Marshal Coon was arraigned on charges of armed robbery for the incident. He is being held in the Gladwin County Jail on a $250,000 bond.
