One woman is in custody after the robbery of an AT&T store.
The Illinois State Police stopped the woman because the car she was driving matched the description of the vehicle seen at the scene of the robbery. A search of the car turned up several cell phones and other items related to the robbery.
Police believe two male suspects are still on the loose and should be considered armed and dangerous. The suspects entered the south county store just before ten this morning and tied the employees up in the back room.
