Police have arrested two men wanted for robbing a bank courier at the McDonald’s on Rochester Road, north of Avon, in January.
According to Lt. Stephen Jacobs of the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office’s Rochester Hills substation, a bank courier was leaving the McDonald’s at 12:53 p.m. Jan. 7 when a man ran into him, knocking him over. The suspect, whom police identified as Larry Marrioneaux, 19, from Macomb Township, allegedly took three bags of money that dropped to the ground and fled west from McDonald’s down a service drive, according to police.
The courier, from the Clarkston State Bank, an elderly man, was not injured during the incident, Jacobs said. The three bank bags contained a total of approximately $7,000 in cash.
Capt. Mike Johnson of the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office’s Rochester Hills substation said that immediately following the crime, detectives received information that a previous McDonald’s employee — identified as Brandon King, 23, from Waterford — had contacted a current employee to see if the courier had shown up at the store. King reportedly told the employee he needed $40 in change to do laundry, according to reports. Following the call, the courier was robbed.
Soon after, detectives were able to connect King and Marrioneaux to the robbery, they said, and warrants were sought for both men for unarmed robbery, a felony punishable by up to 15 years.
Investigators from the Oakland County Sherriff’s Fugitive Apprehension Team arrested King, who is currently being held at the Oakland County Jail, in Waterford Township. King was arraigned in February for unarmed robbery at the 52-3 District Court before Magistrate Marie Soma and was given a $25,000 cash or surety bond. King’s attorney, Eric Wilson, could not be reached for comment at press time.
Marrioneaux was arrested near the Westbridge Manor Mobile Home Park in Macomb Township with the assistance of the Macomb County Sherriff’s Department. He was arraigned for unarmed robbery April 4 at the 52-3 District Court before Magistrate Nicolas Camargo and is currently being housed in Macomb County Jail on unrelated charges. Marrioneaux had no attorney on file at press time.
“Larry was arrested in Macomb County, so there were some Macomb County charges that he had to face there first before we could arraign him in Oakland County,” Johnson said.
Both men are scheduled for preliminary exam April 17 in front of Judge Nancy Carniak.
“We wanted people to know that the suspects are in custody,” Johnson said.
