DETROIT (WWJ) – Authorities say an arrest that reports were linking to the theft of more than a half-million dollars from an armored truck parked outside Greektown Casino is actually unrelated to the case.
FBI officials told WWJ Newsradio Wednesday morning that Detroit police may have taken a suspect into custody, but that arrest has nothing to do with their investigation into the Greektown armored car heist.READ MORE: Ford, DTE Energy Announce Plan To Increase Solar Power In Michigan
