Petoskey Police: Armed Robbery Was Staged

New developments in the Petoskey armed robbery investigation.

The department of public safety says it was staged.

The staged armed robbery happened at the West Brook North Recovery Center in Petoskey.

Investigators now say a woman there and the gunman worked together to set up the robbery.

Police say the man walked into the business around 3 p.m. Thursday demanding hundreds of dollars in cash.

The woman gave him the money, and the gunman took off.

Statements from a witness backed up what the woman told police, but investigators had concerns about her story.

Police are working on warrants for both the woman and the gunman.

The department of public safety says there is no longer a concern about a dangerous gunman on the loose.
