DeKALB – A fourth person suspected of being involved in the Aug. 26 armed robbery of a DeKalb T-Mobile store has been arrested in another area, DeKalb Police Chief Gene Lowery said Monday.
The person was arrested with another group of people accused of a robbery in a different city, Lowery told WLBK-AM radio during his monthly appearance on the station.
Police arrested K’ron D. Price, 26, of Country Club Hills; Paul Grissom, 22, of Chicago; and Tyren L. Windell, 26, of Chicago immediately after the robbery.
All three are facing charges in connection to the incident. Police believe the fourth suspect might have been a getaway driver, Lowery told the radio station.
Police have expressed confidence that another suspect would emerge.
On Monday, DeKalb Deputy Police Chief John Petragallo declined to provide any further information about the fourth suspect, citing an ongoing investigation by police.
T-Mobile employees told police that three men entered the store armed with handguns, and ordered store employees to place phones and other merchandise from the store into trash bags, and also stole cash from the store before fleeing.
Two of the men were caught after a short chase, while the third was on the run for about 40 minutes before he was arrested near Kishwaukee Hospital, police said.
DeKalb Police recovered the bags filled with the stolen phones/merchandise, two loaded handguns and money believed to be stolen from the store.
