Chicago man takes plea deal in 7-Eleven armed robbery

Woods will be sentenced Dec. 5, faces 21 to 45 years

SYCAMORE – The second Chicago man convicted in the July 2017 armed robbery of the Sycamore 7-Eleven that left a clerk with two gunshot wounds be sentenced to at least 21 years in prison Dec. 5.

Tevin T. Woods, 27, of the 6000 block of South Ellis Avenue, signed an agreement Thursday to plead guilty to armed robbery and will be sentenced to anywhere from 21 to 45 years in prison, according to DeKalb County Assistant State's Attorney Suzanne Collins.

Collins is prosecuting the case, and Woods is represented by Dan Transier.

Woods and DeAngelo D. Bryant, 22, of the 1100 block of West 10th Street in Chicago, were arrested about 1:30 a.m. July 25, 2017, after a single-vehicle crash near North and Indiana avenues in Elmhurst, according to court records. That was shortly after they'd robbed the 7-Eleven at 404 W. State St., and then robbed a gas station at North and Gary avenues in Carol Stream just after midnight.

Bryant, who admitted to being the driver during the robberies, was found guilty by Judge William Brady on June 14 and sentenced Sept. 4 to 24 years for armed robbery, 12 years of which he must serve, and six years for aggravated battery with a firearm, which he must serve at 85 percent. All told, he'll have to spend 16 years behind bars.

Shortly after Bryant and Woods were arrested, Terrance E. Storey, 28, of the 300 block of West 100th Street, Chicago, was arrested after Elmhurst police found him later that morning under a resident’s outdoor deck.

Storey is also due back in court at 9 a.m. Dec. 5, and because police say he's the one who fired the gun, he could face 31 years to life in prison. Police say Storey admitted to them that he fired the gun twice, but he did it to scare the clerk, who police say was shot twice in the lower body.

The three Chicago men have been in DeKalb County jail since July 25, 2017, and Chief Judge Robbin Stuckert denied them the opportunity to post bail July 26.
