Fruitport Police say a purse snatching this past weekend may be linked to a couple of armed robberies in Norton Shores today.

The party store and gas station robberies had a man driving a gold SUV, possibly a Chevrolet Blazer. Fruitport investigators say a similar vehicle was used Sunday afternoon as a woman's purse was taken from the Wal-Mart parking lot along East Sherman Boulevard. The man involved covered his face with a bandana in each crime.

Tips can be offered to Fruitport Police (231-865-8477) Muskegon County Silent Observer (231-72-CRIME) or online.
