Suspicious Incident: Teens Talk Robbery, Gangs and Shootings at Speedway at Palatine Rd and Arlington Heights Rd

Arlington Heights police responded about 3:23 AM Monday of suspicious activity at the Speedway gas station, 1902 North Arlington Heights Road. Police received a report that a large group of teens entered the Speedway building and were openly joking about robbing the gas station, and apparently took money from a change jar.

The group left in a black Cadillac and a white Mitsubishi Eclipse before police were called. It is unknown if the Cadillac was an SUV or sedan.

All subjects in the group (about 8-13 subjects) were described as male/black wearing black and blue. They were also talking about gangs and shootings that they were saying took place earlier this week.
