Isabella County Sheriff: Man, Woman Robbed After Posting Photo on Social Media

Police in Isabella County need help finding three people they say robbed a man and woman at gunpoint.

The sheriff’s office says it all started when the victims posted a picture of money on social media.

Deputies are looking for 20-year-old Douglas Gale of Mount Pleasant, along with two others. 

The sheriff’s office was called to the Timber Creek Apartments around 1:30 Sunday morning.

They say the victims posted a purposely edited image on social media as a joke, showing them with a large amount of cash.

Later, an acquaintance came to their apartment with two other men demanding the cash.

Deputies say two of the suspects had handguns.

When the trio learned there was no money they demanded prescription drugs and left.

The sheriff’s office says the three could be in a beige Ford 500 with rusted rear fenders.
