20th District Police Commander Sean Loughran has informed me that two male juveniles have been taken into custody for multiple armed robberies that recently occurred in our ward.
While on patrol, 20th District tactical officers spotted two males that matched the description of the offenders exiting a reported stolen vehicle from a previous armed robbery. A foot pursuit ensued and officers were able to detain the offenders and place them into custody without incident. All offenders were charged accordingly.
