LANSING - Four people were arrested following an armed robbery of a home on Lansing's south side late Thursday.
Lansing police Lt. Noel Garcia said that at about 11:45 p.m. four subjects, two of them armed with guns, forced their way into a house on the 3200 block of Norwich Road and demanded money from four people inside the home.
One of the victims gave an undisclosed amount of cash to the subjects, who then left in a silver vehicle, Garcia said.
No one was hurt.
Police arrived, interviewed the victims and got descriptions of the suspects and the vehicle.
Shortly after the incident an officer in the area located the vehicle on Mt. Hope Avenue east of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and made a traffic stop, Garcia said.
Four people were inside the vehicle. The driver then provided information to the officer implicating them in the robbery, said Garcia, who declined to elaborate.
Officers located "significant evidence linking all of the suspects to the crime" in the vehicle, Garcia said, and the four were arrested.
The four suspects are all Lansing males, Garcia said. Two are 20 years old. One is 19 and another is 16. The adults are being held at Lansing police lock-up. The 16-year-old is being held at the Ingham County youth home.
All are awaiting charges.
Garcia praised the work of officers involved in the incident.
"This is an excellent example of great police work and teamwork by the officers that worked this case last night," he said.
