A man accused in a string of robberies in Michigan showed his friend a backpack full of guns, federal authorities said. The friend then went to the police in exchange for reward money, officials said. The two-night series of robberies began at 4:30 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 11, according to a criminal complaint filed in the Eastern District Court of Michigan on Wednesday, Sept. 14. A stolen Kia crashed through the front of a gun shop in Westland, Michigan, the complaint says. Seven people got out of the car, rushed into the store, and grabbed about 50 firearms before fleeing on foot, federal authorities said.
