Three Waukegan men have been charged with robbing an Antioch Game Stop store at gunpoint last Tuesday on Route 173.

Antioch police announced the arrests of Darrick T. Yarbrough, 50, Donald O. Palmer, 35, and Obrian J. Henigan, 25, in connection to the crime, which occurred around 11:30 a.m. Sept. 27.

An employee of the store at 489 E. Route 173 reported the crime after two men entered the business, each armed with a handgun, and demanded money and the store's surveillance equipment.

Police acquired surveillance footage of the getaway vehicle, a mid-200s black Lincoln Navigator with chrome trim and wheels, which eventually led them to the suspects.

On Friday night, a Lake County sheriff's deputy spotted a vehicle matching that description and contacted the Antioch Police Department, who brought the suspect in for questioning. The man, whom police would not identify, was charged with armed robbery. During the investigation, police were able to identify and charge two additional men and recover evidence of the crime, said Antioch Police Chief Craig Somerville.

Yarbrough, of the 900 block of George Avenue, Palmer, of the 300 block of George Avenue, and Henigan, of the 400 block of South Avenue, were all charged with armed robbery, which carries sentence of six to 30 years in prison.

The Game Stop employee told police the two suspects who entered the store partially covered their faces with their jackets and displayed two guns -- a semiautomatic pistol and a revolver-style handgun -- according to police.

The men then sped from the scene east on Route 173 with an undisclosed amount of cash and the store's surveillance equipment, Somerville said.

Yarbrough and Palmer appeared in bond court in Waukegan and are being held at the Lake County jail in lieu of $250,000 bail. Their next court date is set for Nov. 1.

Henigan will appear in bond court Tuesday morning.
