A 36-year-old woman has been charged in connection with the 2014 armed robbery of a west suburban liquor store.

Wynter K. Lopez, 36, of the 200 block of Vernon Drive in Bolingbrook, was arrested Monday and was later charged with aggravated robbery and robbery, according to Aurora police.

On June 23, 2014, at about 10:30 a.m., Lopez went to a liquor store in the 2200 block of Ogden Avenue in Aurora, and was captured on video making a small purchase and peering into the cash register as change was made, according to a statement from police.

She then left the store and her alleged accomplice, a male wearing a hooded sweatshirt and bandanna, robbed the business at gunpoint, police said.

Video surveillance captured Lopez and the male approaching the business from an apartment complex behind the store, police said. The suspect took an undisclosed amount of cash, and the video shows both Lopez and the offender running away toward the apartment complex after the robbery.

Police were able to locate Lopez because she paid for her items with a Link card, which they were able to trace, the statement said.

Police are pursuing leads into the identity of the male suspect.

The clerk, a 49-year-old man, was not injured.
