According to a preliminary investigation, a Sterling Heights man met three men and a juvenile at about 3 p.m. Monday in the parking lot of the Walmart on 14 Mile and Van Dyke to conduct the sale of some high-end clothing arranged over the internet.
During the meeting, one of the buyers produced a handgun and robbed the man, taking the clothing, his money, cellphone and a credit card, police said. The four then fled the scene.
Sterling Heights police were called and they issued a bulletin about the robbery to all nearby law enforcement agencies.
Shortly after, Warren police located a car matching the description and gave chase. Following a short pursuit, Warren police officers arrested the four males at 11 Mile and Ryan. They recovered all of the stolen items and turned the suspects over to Sterling Heights police.
