2 of 3 West Quad armed robbery suspects arrested
Two of the three people suspected to be involved in the December 4th armed robbery in West Quad were arrested on Sunday. The third suspect remains at large.
According to a press release from the Division of Public Safety and Security, Brian White, 18, of Novi, Mich. and Deandre Jetter, 19, of West Bloomfield, Mich., were both arraigned on four felony counts: two accounts of armed robbery, first-degree home invasion and larceny in a building. The standard sentence for armed robbery is a life term, while home invasion is a 20-year felony and larceny is a 4-year felony.
DPSS spokeswoman said last week the armed robbery attacked three University students, and the incident was "not a random act of violence." White, Jetter, and the third suspect allegedly demanded property from the students and brandished a handgun. None of the victims required medical assistance. Residents of both West Quad and neighboring South Quad were initially alerted to remain aware of their surroundings and take precautions, but were soon given an all clear.
Detectives with the U-M Division of Public Safety and Security continue to investigate the case and are actively looking for the third suspect.
