DIXON – Dixon police are investigating an armed robbery which took place Monday at U.S. Cellular, 166 Keul Road.
Lt. Brad Sibley said police responded to the store at 5:50 p.m. Two men entered the store and displayed a firearm, and left with an unknown value of merchandise.
They then headed east on Interstate 88. A witness outside the store was able to provide police with the vehicle's license plate.
Sibley said the vehicle was later involved in a crash on Orchard Road near Aurora. Illinois State Police District 15 troopers, with DeKalb County deputies and Aurora police, responded. Four people were taken into custody, including three men and a woman.
Dixon officers were headed to the crash site, which is being treated as a crime scene, but were delayed because of the snowy weather Monday.
