Men arrested with drugs are suspects in robbery on U-M's North Campus

By Kyle Feldscher

Two men were arrested for possession of drugs with intent to deliver and are suspects in a cell phone robbery Wednesday afternoon at the University of Michigan.

University of Michigan police reported a U-M student was walking along the sidewalk in the 1700 block of Cram Circle when a man grabbed his cell phone from behind. The man jumped into a black Dodge Charger, which then hit the student as it left the parking lot, police said.

Police were sent to the scene at about 4:31 p.m. Wednesday. The student was not injured.

A vehicle matching the description of the vehicle used in the robbery was stopped at about 5:22 p.m. Wednesday in the 600 block of Oxford, police said. The traffic stop resulted in two men being arrested and lodged at the Washtenaw County Jail for possession of drugs with intent to deliver, police stated.

The investigation into the robbery continues, but the men are considered suspects in the incident, police said.

Anyone with information on the robbery is encouraged to call U-M police at 1-800-863-1355.

I hope one of the suspects was wearing a red-black horizontal striped shirt & black baggy pants because: that would mean he was the guy I reported to 911 about an hour earlier than this robbery yesterday. (He was in an downtown alley, crouching over a freezer bag which contained a number of small clear plastic packets of a white substance. ) Small chance of course - there's more going on in this town than just cell phone robberies on campus.
