Suspect sought in New Baltimore bank robbery


A suspected bank robber from Macomb County, who may have fled to the Thumb area, is now believed to be in Indiana or Illinois. New Baltimore police have been searching for 18-year old Jacob Edwards since Tuesday when the Huntington Bank on Washington Street was robbed. Yesterday, Indiana State Police put out an All Points Bulletin for a pickup truck that Edwards allegedly stole after a driver pulled over to help him along a highway. The chase went into Illinois where there was a crash and the driver ran away. A person using Edwards’ name was on social media a couple days ago talking about disappearing again. Detectives are trying to determine if it was in fact Edwards making those posts.
