Police said a witness outside the store told them the men ran to a green Nissan and left the area driving west on 75th Street.

Officers located the vehicle heading north on I-355 and followed it to the area of Route 59 and Ferry Road in Warrenville, where the occupants stopped and ran from the car.

All three men were caught after a short foot pursuit, but authorities said no charges have yet been filed.
