The Lapeer County Bank & Trust branch on the northwest corner of Davison and Elba roads was robbed last Thursday afternoon in a bizarre set of circumstances involving a local businessman. Dustin Jenkins, 31, the owner of Elite Feet was arraigned Friday afternoon on charges including three counts of armed robbery, one count of bank robbery, three counts of unlawful imprisonment (holding people against their will), and one count of unlawful driving away of an automobile.Jenkins stood before Magistrate Michael Delling quietly while his mother and wife sat in the courtroom. His father, Dale, is a retired Lapeer County Sheriff's Department deputy, and his brother works for the Shiawasse County Sheriff's department.

The bank had no customers at the time of the robbery. It marked the third bank robbery in the last three years in Lapeer County and certainly the strangest.
