Reports from the robberies say a man in a black hoodie and facemask, and grey sweatpants, claimed to have a gun in both stores but no weapon was seen.

According to Saginaw County central dispatch; the man took  over 300 dollars from Meijer cashiers,  and threatened service-desk employees inside the kroger.

Saginaw Township police chief Don Pussehl says the driver of the vehicle at the Speedway, a 32 year old man, was taken into custody around 2:15pm, but adds the department is still in the early stages of investigation.
