Prosecutors allege that two brothers stole more than $1 million from an armored truck and an ATM in Lansing on Halloween.
According to the US Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Illinois, the incident happened around 10:45 a.m. at a bank in the 16700 block of Torrence Avenue while a Brink’s security courier was refilling an ATM.
Prosecutors said Corrie Singleton, 21, Darrell Singleton, 18, of South Holland, and a juvenile suspect brandished handguns while stealing a gun, a bag of money, and cash from the ATM from the courier.
According to prosecutors, the suspects then dragged the courier back into the armored truck to open inner compartments and hand over money bags.
According to prosecutors, the courier was robbed of $121,824 and the truck was robbed of $904,132.
The suspects then fled in a vehicle with police pursuing them until they collided with another car near an I-80 exit ramp, at which point the suspects fled on foot, according to prosecutors.
Darrell Singleton has been arrested, and Corrie Singleton has been taken into custody. Both have been charged with robbery, bank larceny by assault, and firearm violations.
A juvenile suspect was also arrested and charged in state court.
