DEARBORN, Mich. – A Garden City armed robbery suspect has been taken into custody after a large police search at AK Steel in Dearborn, according to authorities.

The search took place in the area of Schaefer and Butler roads, officials said. Michigan State Police troopers and Dearborn police officers were involved.

Police said the person is a suspect in an armed robbery at a party store in Garden City.

Ford had locked down all buildings at its Rouge site for several hours to keep workers safe, but that lockdown has since been lifted. AK Steel is inside the gates at the Rouge site, but is not a Ford facility.
