Tanner Young (pictured), 17, of the 1500 block of Woodgate Drive, hid in the backseat of a red Pontiac Vibe while Jeremy Schwiesow, 19, of the 1300 block of John Street, acquired about a quarter of an ounce of marijuana, court records show. When Schwiesow gave a signal, Young emerged brandishing the knife, and they ordered the dealer out of the car. The two Sycamore teens were charged with armed robbery after they stole $100 worth of marijuana at knifepoint, police said.
The charges against the individuals listed are not a proof of guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial in which it is the state’s burden to prove his or her guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
