Any person who engages in an offense listed under 750.530 (robbery) who is armed with a dangerous weapon or an article used in a manner to lead any person present to believe the article is a dangerous weapon, or who orally or otherwise suggests that he or she possesses a dangerous weapon, will face additional felony charges, with extremely harsh penalties.
