GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — U.S. Marshals caught a casino robbery suspect in Grand Rapids, Mich., Friday.

Authorities say Johnny Clark, who is from Grand Rapids, robbed Bally’s and the Fitz earlier this year.

Tunica County law enforcement say a tip led to Clark’s arrest.

He was taken into custody without incident, and is being held without bond while awaiting an extradition hearing to return to Tunica County.

Two other men, 43-year-old Anthony West and 59-year-old Frank Pope, are also charged in connection with the robberies.

West is charged with three counts of conspiracy to armed robbery, two counts of felon in possession of firearm and felony controlled substance. His bond was set at $780.000.

Pope is charged with three counts of conspiracy to armed robbery, with bond set at $60,000.

Bally’s was robbed April 28. On May 31, an armed man tried and failed to rob the casino, but his weapon discharged in the building.

Police say an armed man robbed the Fitz on June 2.
