COLON (WKZO) -- Call it good luck or good Karma, maybe good timing, but two robbers are in jail this morning because they chose the wrong parking spot.

As he was going off duty, the Chief of Police in Colon just happened to park next to the van that two robbers were using as their getaway vehicle last evening.

The pair had just robbed the Village Pharmacy and headed to the van when Chief Mark Brinkert says he locked eyes with one of the robbers and knew something was wrong and decided to tail them.

A few minutes later the report of the robbery was dispatched. Brinkert called for back-up and with help from State Police and officers from Mendon, Sturgis and the Sheriff’s Department, got them to pull over and surrender.

The two men from Indiana are being held for armed robbery, fleeing and eluding and felony gun counts.
