The offenders took cash during the robbery and then fled on foot, south toward Lake Cook Road. Three Lake County Sheriff’s Office Canine Teams and a Schaumburg Police Canine Team responded to the scene. The canines detected the scent of the offenders, which led from the Marathon Gas Station and ended in the area of Lake Cook Road and Plum Grove Road, Palatine. The offenders were not located and remain at large.

The two offenders were described as being:
#1) White or Hispanic male, approximately 15 – 20 years of age, brown hair, brown eyes, and approximately 5’07” – 5’08”, medium build. He was wearing a checkered style hooded sweatshirt, black pants with white stripes, and carried a fluorescent yellow backpack. This individual displayed a handgun.

#2) White or Hispanic male, approximately 15 – 20 years of age, brown hair, brown eyes, and approximately 5’10” – 5’11”, medium build. He was wearing a white hooded sweatshirt with the wording “Southpole”, grey camouflage style pants, and carried a black backpack with a white emblem.

Please contact the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division at 847-377-4147, if you have information regarding this incident or recognize the clothing worn by the offenders. The faces of the offenders in the attached photographs have been removed, due to the possibility they are juveniles.
