Police in Wyoming investigating Amazon delivery truck robbery – WOODTV.com



WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) — Several law enforcement agencies surrounded a home in Wyoming Monday afternoon as they looked for suspects in the armed robbery of an Amazon delivery truck.

The robbery happened in Rockford around 1 p.m. near 10 Mile Road and Oak Street. Details regarding the robbery are unclear at this time, but authorities said no one was hurt.

Investigators tracked the suspects to a home on Riley Avenue SW near Longfellow Avenue in Wyoming. The Wyoming Department of Public Safety, Michigan State Police, Grand Rapids SWAT and ambulance crews surrounded a home. Using a bullhorn, police ordered those inside the house to surrender.

After several hours, authorities say a search warrant was obtained and executed. Two persons of interest were detained and turned over to the Rockford Department of Public Safety.

Police said their presence outside the home looked more dramatic than the situation actually was.

“Out of an abundance of caution, we have to play this a certain way just to make sure that we keep everyone include these neighbors safe assuming the worst-case scenario, which we really don’t think is in play,” Wyoming Department of Public Safety Capt. James Maguffee said.

As of around 6 p.m., authorities had cleared the scene.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Rockford Police Department at 616.866.9557 or Wyoming police at 616.530.7300. Anonymous tips can also be submitted to Silent Observer at 616.774.2345.
