MICHIGAN CITY | Michigan City police arrested a 16-year-old, now charged with one count of Armed Robbery Class B-felony.

On Monday May 5, Michigan City police were called and advised of a robbery that occurred approximately 20 minutes earlier.

Police were told by the 18-year-old victim that he was walking in the 3200 Block of Salem Ct when a male called out to him. When the victim looked over to the person who called him, the suspect displayed a handgun, then pulled it out pointing it at the victim demanding money. The victim handed over money to the suspect at gun point. Once the suspect received the money, he ran out of sight and the victim went home to call police.

A description was given of the suspect and the area was searched without results.

The next day, the case was assigned to Det. Cpl. Al Bush, who started his investigation. As part of Bush’s investigation, he was given information from officers who later in the night saw a suspect who matched the description given during the robbery.

Bush continued his investigation and was able to obtain enough information and evidence to develop a suspect, 16-year-old Cameo Crawford.

On Thursday, May 8 Crawford was arrested without incident and on Friday, with the assistance of Deputy Prosecutor Dave Ambers, Bush conducted a probable cause hearing in front of Judge Kathleen Lang Superior Court No. 1. Bond was set at $25,000

Probable cause was found and Cameo Crawford was formal charged with one count of Armed Robbery Class B-felony.
