1 in custody after attempted robbery at Greektown bail bonds company
One man is in custody after shots were fired during an attempted robbery of a bail bonds business in Greektown, police say. Just before 2 p.m., police say two men entered the Big Louie La Fianza bail bonds office in the 4500 block of Eastern Ave. in an attempt to commit a robbery, but police said they fled after an employee of the business fired a weapon at them.
Det. Kevin Brown, a police spokesman, said one of the suspects "almost ran right into a police car in the area" and was captured, while the other suspect remains at large. Brown said police were checking to make sure the gun was licensed, and he did not immediately release the identity of the captured suspect.
Big Louie exclusively provides bail bonds for the Latino community, according to its web site.
