DeKALB – A 20-year-old Sycamore man was arrested Wednesday in connection with armed robberies at the DeKalb Casey’s General Store and Thirsty Liquors.

Todd A. Koley, 20, of the 800 block of South Cross Street in Sycamore, was arrested Wednesday after a DeKalb police officer chased him on foot and restrained him, said DeKalb police Sgt. Bob Redel. Koley had robbed a Thirsty Liquors clerk at knifepoint a few minutes earlier about 6:35 p.m., Redel said.

Redel said the officer witnessed a suspicious vehicle without lights on about a block away from the liquor store on West Hillcrest Drive minutes after the call and attempted to pull the driver over. Koley eventually pulled over, then fled on foot and was chased down.

DeKalb police noticed his clothing and bandanna matched the description of the suspect in surveillance footage from Sunday’s knifepoint robbery at Casey’s General Store on North Annie Glidden Road, Redel said.

Koley is charged with resisting arrest and two counts of armed robbery.

Armed robbery is a Class X felony typically punishable by up to 30 years in jail. Koley was also arrested on an outstanding warrant for a drug court violation.

No one was injured in either robbery.
