Police, FBI Set Up Roadblocks Around Entire Michigan Town (Video)

| by Michael Allen

Local and state police, and the FBI set up roadblocks and checked everyone entering and leaving the Village of Armada, Mich., yesterday between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.

After questioning drivers and passengers, authorities marked an "X" on their hands, noted WXYZ (video below).

Armada police say that leads to the murder of 14-year-old April Millsap have dried up, so they're questioning the public about the teen whose body was found on July 24 in a wooded area.

Even though authorities blocked all traffic going in and out of the town, they refused to call it a roadblock, but rather claimed it was a "rolling canvas."

According to Click On Detroit, the Michigan State Police and the FBI did search a home in Wales Township, Mich., but found nothing connected to the teen's murder. However, they did use the raid to arrest two men for allegedly having 15 marijuana plants (video below).

Armada Chief of Police Howard Smith claimed the "rolling canvas" was successful, but didn't say if there were any actual new leads to the teen's murder.
