The incident happened Thursday afternoon.
Police in Rochester Hills and Auburn Hills worked together Thursday afternoon to catch a suspect in the strong-arm theft of a necklace from a woman in a store parking lot.
The incident happened in the parking lot of a South Adams Road business at 2:55 p.m. A witness provided the Oakland County Sheriff's Office with a description of the suspects' car. According to Sheriff's Captain Michael Johnson, sheriff's deputies, along with the Auburn Hills Police Department, were on alert for the car, which was found less than an hour later near the intersection of Adams Road and Walton Boulevard.
The suspect in the vehicle, a 21-year-old Pontiac man, was identified as a suspect involved in the robbery earlier that day, as well as robberies in Auburn Hills and Pontiac, Johnson said. A second suspect, also a man, remains at-large.
