Arrest made in connection with robbery at Hockey Sports Academy used by some Red Wings to train

CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) - Clinton Township Police confirm they have one person in custody in connection with a robbery at Hockey Sports Academy in Clinton Township. 

Clinton Township Police tell 7 Action News they'll release the details on Monday. 

While athletes trained inside the Hockey Sports Academy on Thursday, two guys were doing a little work of their own out front - and it was all caught on surveillance camera.

At first they seemed extremely indecisive, not knowing what to take, and wasting a whole lot of time with security cameras watching their every move.

Owner Jasen Barbour told us, "They spent so much time in here. They walked in the office, clearly didn't know what they were looking for. They were all over the place."

The sports facility on Kelly Court is well known for training amateurs, but also a training home for a few Detroit Red Wings from time-to-time.

Barbour says he's never seen the guys before.

After looking around for 5-6 minutes, one guy would eventually hand off a safe filled with money.

As they walked out of the building, still more indecision. They left, then came back inside, like they got scared, and then eventually walked out - turning the wrong direction.

Barbour ended the interview saying, "I'd love to get them in here on skates.

I asked him, "And then rough them up on the boards?"

He responded, "Yes, that's right."
