The woman was abducted early Thursday morning in Georgetown Township, and investigators said 29-year-old Tomas Garcia is responsible. 
They said he was armed with a knife and forced the woman to take him to a Grand Rapids ATM before getting dropped off in the area of Fulton Street and Lane Avenue.
Garcia faces charges of unlawful imprisonment and armed robbery.
Ottawa County's Capt. Mark Bennett said investigators caught Garcia without incident around 5:45pm Friday. Bennett said the Grand Rapids and Grandville police departments helped identify Garcia as the suspect.



$640,000 to house him for the next 20 years. $740,000 includes prosecution costs, public defender, psyc reports, medical and dental.


If the glove fits, you must deport. That's the new PD manifesto. He'll be back in no time to commit another crime!


Cultural enrichment at work


Hope lawful imprisonment prevails.
