DEARBORN — Two Detroit men were arrested and charged in relation to the Sept. 16 robbery of Huntington Bank, 22290 Michigan Ave.

Destine Harrison, 32, was charged with bank robbery and felony firearm, and Jujuan Ashton, 17, was charged with bank robbery and habitual offender at their arraignment Sept. 20 in 19th District Court before Judge Mark Somers.

Their bonds were set at $500,000 each. A preliminary examination of the evidence against them is scheduled for 9 a.m. Sept. 30.

A man entered the bank Sept. 16 armed with a handgun and approached the employees, demanding money. After receiving the money, he fled the bank on foot.

Responding officers noticed a suspicious vehicle with two males leaving the area that matched the description of a vehicle involved in other armed robberies. A 14-year-old Detroit resident who was also present during the incident was released pending further investigation.

A search of the area by officers led to the arrest of the first suspect, who was taken into custody without incident.

It is believed that this group is linked to a regional crime ring that has committed numerous offenses of this nature,” Police Chief Ronald Haddad said. “I am thankful this came to a peaceful resolution with no injuries to the public or anyone involved.”
