Three Delta County residents are in jail in connection with a robbery reported in August of 2012, including the person who called police.
The clerk at the “Grain N Grape” convenience store on U.S. 2 & 41 & M–35 between Escanaba and Gladstone reported the incident August 3.
She said a man wearing a ski mask and carrying a pistol demanded money….and then left with an undisclosed amount of money.
Annaelise Marie Ambrose, 22, of Escanaba is charged with the four year felony of “Larceny In A Building” “Conspiracy To Commit Larceny In A Building” – a 4 year felony and “Lying To A Police Officer–Violent Crime Investigation” – a 4 year felony. Ambrose is in the Delta County Jail on a bond of $50,000 cash.
The second suspect charged in the case is Cory Michael Vanderlinden, 26, of rural Gladstone. He faces one five-year felony count of being an “Accessory After The Fact To A Felony.” His bond is also set at $50,000 cash.
Abby Beth Johnson, 20, of Escanaba has a $100,000 cash bond. She faces two four–year felony counts in the case: “Larceny In A Building” and “Conspiracy To Commit Larceny In A Building.”
Johnson was also arrested in an unrelated theft of a
safe from a home in Ford River Township in April of 2012. She was charged with “Safe breaking” – a felony of life or any number of years, and two felony larceny counts.
The three were arrested yesterday and arraigned today in 94th District Court.
