Three suspects are in custody as Buffalo Grove and Lincolnshire police continue to investigate an armed robbery that occurred at a Buffalo Grove business Wednesday night.
At approximately 7:30 p.m. a call came in regarding three armed individuals who had arrived in a U-Haul truck and entered an unlocked business in the 1500 block of N. Barclay Road in Buffalo Grove. An employee of the business was reportedly restrained as the three subjects stole property before leaving in the truck.
Shortly afterward, police officers spotted the U-Haul travelling near Aptakisic Road and Milwaukee Avenue in Lincolnshire. Officers began to follow the truck, which then crashed into three other vehicles. The subjects inside the truck then fled on foot.
Police requested assistance from area police departments, which included police officers, canines and a police helicopter. A perimeter was established and area businesses secured their buildings. Portions of Milwaukee Avenue were also shut down while police searched for the subjects.
Three subjects were ultimately taken into custody due to participation from several area law enforcement agencies in the search. Police are still in the area as the investigation continues. No injuries were reported from the incident, and there is no threat to the public.
