Pic Collage Robbery

DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin and Lombard Chief of Police Roy Newton announced that bond has been set for four men accused of stealing personal items from two victims outside of Yorktown Mall.

(PRESS RELEASE DUPAGE COUNTY STATE'S ATTORNEY'S OFFICE)

All four men appeared at bond hearing this morning where Judge John Kinsella set bond as below. Each defendant is charged with one count of Class 1 Felony Robbery and one count of Class 2 Felony Robbery. The cases against each of the four men will be heard in front of Judge Kinsella.


•    Shaheer Muhammad, 19 (d.o.b. 1/7/1999) of 3839 W. Grenshaw, Chicago. Bond was set at $30,000 with 10% to apply. His next court appearance is scheduled for December 5, 2018, for arraignment.
•    Lezzerick Webster, 24 (d.o.b. 9/10/1994) of 4355 W. Maypole, Chicago. Bond was set at $75,000 with 10% to apply. His next court appearance is scheduled for December 6, 2018, for arraignment.
•    Trentiss McClinton¸ 23 (d.o.b. 1/15/1995) of 632 N. St. Louis Avenue, Chicago. Bond was set at $100,000 with 10% to apply. His next court appearance is scheduled for December 5, 2018 for arraignment.
•    Dewayne Powell, 22 (d.o.b. 11/13/1995) of 1102 N Keystone, Chicago. Bond was set at $75,000 with 10% to apply. His next court appearance is scheduled for December 6, 2018 for arraignment.


It is alleged that on November 7, 2018, approximately 3:35 p.m., the four men were at Yorktown mall together. It is alleged that one of the men bumped into the first victim while he was using his cell phone outside the mall and that he then stole the phone from the victim’s hand after bumping him. It is further alleged that the second victim, a seventy-eight-year-old woman, was walking outside the mall when the same defendant forcibly took her purse from her arms. It is alleged that all four men then entered a vehicle and fled the scene. An investigation initiated by the Lombard Police Department led authorities to a nearby strip mall. All four men had abandoned their vehicle in the strip mall. Three of the men were ultimately found in a dumpster and the fourth was found standing outside the dumpster near a Nordstrom Rack store in the strip mall by Oak Brook Terrace Police.

“Once again, we see individuals traveling to DuPage County to allegedly commit a crime,” Berlin said. “And once again, thanks to the truly outstanding police work of the Lombard and Oak Brook Terrace Police Departments, these four defendants were quickly apprehended and charged. With the holiday shopping season quickly approaching, I want to assure DuPage County residents and visitors that law enforcement will do everything in our power to keep our stores, restaurants and malls safe for everyone to enjoy the holiday season. Likewise, I urge everyone to be aware of your surroundings while shopping. If you see something suspicious, alert security or staff at the establishment. I would like to thank Assistant State’s Attorneys Adam Frahm and Nick Catizone for their work in securing charges against the four defendants in this case.”

“As evidenced by the quick identification and arrest of the four men accused in this case, the Lombard Police Department has no tolerance for this type of behavior,” Newton said. “My administration’s top priority is public safety and Lombard residents can rest assured that your police department is one hundred percent committed to protecting your safety twenty-four hours a day. I thank the State’s Attorney’s Office for filing the appropriate charges against these four men. I would also like to thank the Oak Brook Terrace Police Department for their work in locating these defendants.”

Members of the public are reminded that this complaint contains only charges and is not proof of the defendants’ guilt. The defendants are presumed innocent and are entitled to a fair trial in which it is the government’s burden to prove their guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
