Three Chicago men who allegedly robbed a Des Plaines Radio Shack at gunpoint, only to be caught with the help of a tracking device on one of the devices that was stolen, were each ordered held on $250,000 bail Sunday by a Cook County judge.
On June 27, Tommie Parker, Antoine Adams and Ronaldo Crawford, drove to the store on the 1500 block of South Lee and parked the car in the alley in back, said Assistant State’s Attorney Anthony Gattuso.
Crawford, the 31-year-old driver, stayed in the car while Parker and Adams, 23 and 38, respectively, entered the store at 12:30 p.m. with two metal Glock-style air pistols, demanding the employees give them money and electronic goods, Gattuso said.
The two men left the store with four large bags of personal electronic devices valued at $32,808 and $581 cash, according to a police report.
Des Plaines police were able to track down the trio later that day using a tracking device on some of the stolen devices, police and prosecutors said.
Prosecutors said Adams has two felony convictions, one for a burglary in 1992 and the other for an armed robbery in 2002. Parker has a felony conviction from 2010 while Crawford has two felony convictions for armed robberies in 2002 and 2003.
