BRIDGEPORT TWP., Mich. (WNEM) - A 28-year-old Bridgeport man was arrested after an armed robbery at a party store.

The crime took place at 1:35 a.m. on Sept. 28 at Damore’s Party Store in Bridgeport Township.

The man left the store with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Officers responded to the scene with K9 units and conducted a track for the suspect, which was unsuccessful.

After an investigation, the suspect and the gun – which was found to be a BB gun – were located later that evening with other evidence, Duffett said.
