Credit Union Robbery Suspects Arraigned

It was the first day in court for the two Delta County men charged with robbing a credit union this week.

19-year-old Jacob Johnston is charged with the felony of aiding and abetting armed robbery of a credit union.

21-year-old Carl Crane, Jr. faces the felony armed robbery charge.

The charges are from the armed robbery at the Great Lakes First Federal Credit Union in Rapid River Wednesday afternoon.

They each face up to 25 years in prison and up to a $250,000 fine, plus restitution.

According to the complaint, the take from the robbery was $13,504.

Police recovered a large amount of the money when they captured the suspects early Thursday morning.

The two are scheduled for an initial appearance in U.S. District Court on Monday.

Crane and Johnston are being held in the Marquette County Jail.

The response and investigation involved a number of local, state and federal agencies, including the FBI, the Michigan State Police, the Delta and Menominee County Sheriff’s Departments, UPSET and Escanaba Public Safety.
