CHICAGO — Prosecutors have charged two men with robbing a Logan Square cellular store on Thursday afternoon, Chicago police said.
Two men wearing face masks entered the Metro by T-Mobile, 3409 West Belmont, around 3 p.m. and took a number of iPhones by force, and escaped through the back door.
Police had little to go on in the way of descriptions, other than both men wore saggy jeans that exposed black boxers on one robber and boxers decorated with cartoon characters on the other.
But one of the phone boxes they stole contained a secret tracking device, which police began to follow within a few minutes.
Chicago cops arrested Romerio Morgan, 36, and Terrell Lewis, 32, about 90 minutes after the robbery in the 2900 block of East 92nd Street, CPD said.
Morgan, of Pleasant Hill, Iowa, and Lewis, who lives in Aurora, are scheduled to appear for bail hearings on Friday afternoon.
Illinois Department of Corrections records show that Lewis was paroled on January 12 after serving about nine years for Class X armed habitual criminal and two residential burglaries.
CWBChicago will post an updated story with complete details about the allegations after their court hearings.
