North Chicago man charged in police chase, armed robberies
A North Chicago man is in custody after fleeing from the scene of an armed robbery and leading police on a car chase through Waukegan, Zion and Winthrop Harbor Thursday, according to police.
Waukegan police officers responded at 12:39 p.m. to an armed robbery alarm and a 911 call reporting an armed suspect had forced employees to a backroom and demanded cash at a Payday Loans store at 2510 Grand Avenue.
As officers were responding, details emerged that a suspect had fled in a vehicle, which they spotted in the immediate area and tried to stop, but the suspect vehicle refused to yield. It eventually lost control and crashed into a parked car near 9th Street and Sheridan Road in Winthrop Harbor, in a parking lot shared by the Winthrop Harbor village hall and police department.
Alan F. Green, 24, of North Chicago, faces 13 charges in connection with the Nov. 14 crime, including aggravated unlawful restraint, armed robbery, resisting a police officer and criminal damage to property.
Police also arrested Justin R. Banks, 23, of Zion, at the time of Green's arrest. Both were charged with aggravated unlawful restraint and armed robbery in connection with a robbery that occurred at the same Payday Loans store on Oct. 25. They were also charged for attempting an armed robbery Nov. 11 at a Title Max store located at 1801 Belvidere Road.
Banks and Green are being held in the Lake County jail on $250,000 Bond. Their next court appearance is Dec. 4.
