A Naperville man and an Aurora man are being held in DuPage County jail in connection with two armed robberies reported in one week at the same 7-Eleven in Naperville, authorities said Tuesday.
Police who had been investigating the crimes said they arrested Adam R. Zace, 30, of the 400 block of Kiowa Drive in Naperville, and Kyle L. McGill, 28, of the 800 block of Gladstone Avenue in Aurora, on Friday.
Zace is charged with two counts of aggravated robbery with a dangerous weapon or firearm and McGill is facing one count of the same charge. If convicted, each man could face four to 15 years in prison, according to the DuPage County state's attorney's office.
The arrests came one day after the second armed robbery was reported at the 7-Eleven at 351 E. Bailey Road.
Naperville police said a man entered the convenience store at 10:07 a.m. Thursday and implied he had a weapon but did not show one before leaving with an unknown amount of money.
The suspect was described as an unshaven white man with brown hair who appeared about 30 years old. Witnesses told police he was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and white and black gym shoes with a red mask covering part of his face.
In the first robbery, reported at 7:21 a.m. May 15, a suspect described as a white or Hispanic man wearing a ski mask, a black coat and black and white gym shoes made off with an undisclosed amount of cash from the register, Naperville Sgt. Bill Davis said.
Bond was set at $25,000 for Zace and $20,000 for McGill, according to DuPage County jail records. Both remain in jail awaiting arraignment hearings.
Zace's arraignment is scheduled for June 16 and McGill's for June 23, according to the state's attorney's office.
