On Thursday, November 12, 2020, at approximately 7:10pm, Schaumburg Police responded to a report of an armed robbery near the front of the police station, 1000 W. Schaumburg Road. Two subjects were in the process of selling an item utilizing the video surveilled, internet purchase and exchange “Meetup Spot” located in front of the Police Department. While the two suspects examined the item for sale, they fled with the merchandise. As the victims began to pursue them, one of the suspects displayed a firearm.
Responding officers located and apprehended both suspects. The firearm that had been displayed and the stolen merchandise were recovered. During the incident, there were no injuries reported and no one required any medical attention.
The subjects were identified as Louis R. Clark, Jr. (male, 21 years of age, 300 block of S. Prospect Ave, Bartlett, IL) and Jordan W. Brown (male, 19 years of age, 100 block of W. Elk Trail, Carol Stream, IL).
Clark and Brown were transported to the Schaumburg Police Department for further investigation. The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office reviewed the case and authorized the following charges:
Suspect Louis R. Clark, Jr. was charged with Armed Robbery (Class X Felony)
Suspect Jordan W. Brown was charged with Armed Robbery (Class X Felony)
Both subjects, Clark and Brown, will be transported to the Cook County Courthouse, 26th and California, Chicago for a bond hearing.
“Although the primary goal for the designated police department merchandise exchange spot is to prevent such crimes from ever occurring, the utilization of this location allowed for the quick apprehension of the suspects. We encourage our residents to continue using this location for online merchandise exchanges”, said Chief Bill Wolf.
