MAN WANTED IN COL­LEGE OF DUPAGE ROB­BERY AR­RESTED NEAR HOUS­TON

Chicago Sun-Times - - METROBEAT -

Texas po­lice ar­rested a man on the run Mon­day morn­ing after he was ac­cused of rob­bing a Col­lege of DuPage stu­dent more than six months ago.

Bond was set at $ 300,000 for De­an­dre Ford, 19, who faces an armed rob­bery charge in con­nec­tion with the in­ci­dent on Sept. 12, 2016, ac­cord­ing to El­lis County sher­iff’s of­fice records. He’s await­ing ex­tra­di­tion back to Illi­nois.

Ford, who lived in the 300 block of Spruce Lane in Glen El­lyn at the time of the al­leged rob­bery, had moved to Mont­gomery, Texas, a town about 50 miles north of Hous­ton.

In Septem­ber, Ford and an­other sus­pect, 19- year- old Javon Bur­russ, ap­proached a woman-while she­was alone in the col­lege’s park­ing lot about 10: 30 p. m., ac­cord­ing to a state­ment from the DuPage County state’s at­tor­ney’s of­fice. Bur­russ had a BB gun as the pair took the woman’s purse and back­pack be­fore run­ning away. Bur­russ, who lived in the same block as Ford, was ar­rested in Fe­bru­ary and charged with armed rob­bery, pros­e­cu­tors said. Bur­russ was held on $ 250,000 bond, and a $ 300,000 ar­rest war­rant was is­sued for Ford.
