On 4/5/15, the Michigan State Police began an investigation into a series of armed robberies that had occurred in at least two apartment complexes in Union Township of Isabella County.
Through the investigation, investigators were able to determine at least three separate armed robberies occurred between February and April of 2015. The victims were all students of Central Michigan University. It was also determined each of the robberies occurred during illegal drug transactions within the apartments.
Investigators were able to identify William Jones, 19 years of age, from Detroit as one of the individuals involved with the robberies. Jones was arrested on April 9, 2015 at his dorm at Central Michigan University.
Jones cooperated with investigators and identified Dewon Webb, 23 years of age, from Detroit as one of his co‑conspirators. Jones also identified a third person. This person’s name is being withheld pending the issuance of arrest warrants.
Simultaneous search warrants were executed on 4/17/15 on two separate apartments within Union Township by the Michigan State police Emergency Support Team. Dewon Webb was arrested at that time.
Dewon Webb is also cooperating with investigators. He also identified a fourth person whose name is being withheld pending the issuance of arrest warrants.
Some of the items recovered during the search warrant were items stolen during the armed robberies.
