Police release sketch of suspect

The Isabella County Sheriff’s office released a sketch of the man who is wanted for robbing a rural Isabella County store Wednesday night.
A forensic artist from the Michigan State Police Crime Lab in Lansing met with the store clerk Thursday afternoon to do a sketch of the suspect.
According to Isabella County Sheriff Leo Mioduszewski, the man who robbed Koppela’s Korner store at 8990 E. Pere Marquette Road in Wise Township is still on the loose, but deputies now believe the black car he was driving to be an Infinity which is a division of Japanese automaker Nissan Motor Co. Ltd.
The suspect, described as a white man in his 20s, approximately 6 feet tall with a thin build, and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and sunglasses, was carrying what appeared to be a handgun when he entered the store Wednesday night around 7 p.m. and demanded money.
After getting an undisclosed amount of cash from the store, the man got into his car and drove off, heading toward Clare, the sheriff said.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the sheriff’s department at 989-772-0911.
