UNDATED (WHTC) -- A 17-year-old Grandville man is in the Ottawa County Jail waiting to be arraigned on retail theft charges. The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department deputies were dispatched to the Meijer store in Jenison around 4:30 this afternoon. Sgt. Jason Kick reports that astore detective tried to stop the youth. A struggle ensued with the teen dropping what looked like a revolver. He then fled from the store. Deputies followed a trail of store merchandise and apprehended the teen about a half a mile from the store. The revolver turned out to be an Air-Soft gun. Two other accomplices were seen with the suspect. Anyone with information is asked to call the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office or SILENT OBSERVER.
