2 Arrested on Theft-Related Charge for Illinois Armed Robbery
Two men were arrested in Glasford under suspicion of being involved in an illegal activity. The Illinois police suspect that one of the two men robbed a bank by using a knife, then attempted to flee the scene. Later, an investigation of a residence resulted in the arrest of the two men, each under a theft-related charge.
One of the suspects allegedly entered the bank just after 10 a.m., and he wore a black hoodie. He supposedly pulled out a knife and intimidated several bank employees into giving him money, which he then purportedly placed inside a shoebox. Meanwhile, an employee who was in the bathroom allegedly called 911 to report the incident.
Officers from multiple agencies began investigating the case and interrogating possible suspects. For some reason, their investigation led them to a residence with three occupants. It is not clear why, but both male occupants were arrested and charged with armed robbery, and a female occupant was questioned. No charges have yet been filed against the female. The two men were previously arrested for armed robbery but only one was convicted.
The facts of the case suggests that only one person may have been involved, but the police arrested two men. Just because the Illinois men were questioned in a previous robbery case does not necessarily mean that they were involved in this one. Nevertheless, as the criminal cases move forward in the court system, both men will likely want to make sure that their legal rights are protected every step of the way as they prepare to defend against each theft-related charge.
