DeJong was arrested around 8:30 p.m. July 30 after leading police on a high-speed chase. He was alleged to have gone into The Reef, 17176 W. Spring Lake Road, about 8:15 p.m., and demanded money at gunpoint.

DeJong was also suspected of robbing the Kountry Korners store in Fruitport Township earlier that day. For that crime, he waived preliminary examination on charges of armed robbery and fourth-offense habitual offender Aug. 17 in Muskegon County Circuit Court, said Chief Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Brett Gardner.
