LUDINGTON — Two female suspects who returned to the scene of the crime have been arrested and expected to be charged with armed robbery of the Advance America cash store, 4928 W. US 10, Wednesday afternoon, according to Sheriff Kim Cole.

The crime was reported at 12:59 p.m. Cole said an off-duty deputy heard the radio call and was within a mile of the call. When he arrived on scene, he immediately established a perimeter. Ludington Police Department and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources law enforcement assisted the Mason County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies and detectives were able to gather valuable information off of CCTV from the scene and surrounding businesses which helped investigators in identifying a possible suspect vehicle.   A detective on scene recognized a vehicle which matched that of the suspect vehicle seen on CCTV pull back up to the scene.

The information led to the arrest of a 21 year-old Scottville woman and an 18 year-old Fountain woman.  Both have been arrested on a count of armed robbery and are awaiting arraignment in 79th District Court.

Investigators believe they have recovered all the money stolen along with additional evidence linking the two to the crime.

The case remains under investigation.
