A 17-year-old Clinton Township resident was arraigned July 26 in 41B District Court on four counts of armed robbery.
Adarius McCary is accused of committing two armed robberies that occurred July 22 and July 23, according to police.
McCary and an accomplice allegedly robbed three men at gunpoint at 1 a.m. July 22 at the Georgetown Commons Townhouses, on Gaynon Drive, south of 15 Mile Road, east of Groesbeck Avenue. McCary allegedly pointed a handgun at the men and told him “Don’t make me kill you.”
“The first victim gave him a cellphone and $250,” Capt. Richard Maierle said. The second man gave McCary $40 and a cellphone, police said. Nothing was taken from the third victim, according to police.
Maierle said the defendant contacted the three men and asked them to meet him at the townhouses.
“The guy called and said he needed a ride,” the police captain said. “They had an idea of who he was. They sort of knew each other.”
McCary also is accused of an armed robbery police said happened at 10:20 p.m. July 23.
“A Clinton Township resident who is 20 years old (was) walking down McKishnie Street, and the same suspect came up to him,” Maierle said. “He exposed a handgun and said to give him everything he had.”
The victim reportedly emptied his pockets and handed over his cellphone.
Police got a warrant for McCary and arrested him July 24 in the area of Gaynon Drive and Louise Avenue.
“We had undercover units driving around looking for him,” Maierle said.
Police are still looking for a second suspect involved in the July 22 incident.
“We’re working on identifying him right now,” Maierle said.
McCary faces three counts of armed robbery in the first incident and one count of armed robbery in the second incident.
“You can get up to life for armed robbery,” Maierle said.
McCary had been held at the Clinton Township jail until his arraignment and was scheduled to be transported to the Macomb County Jail after his arraignment. He did not have an attorney listed at press time.
No one was injured in the incidents. Neither the cash nor the cellphones were recovered by police.
