Two men robbed a T-Mobile store at gunpoint in southwest suburban Orland Park Monday afternoon.
Two men armed with handguns walked into the store, located at 15615 S. La Grange Road, about 2:20 p.m. and ordered the five employees working at the time into a back office, according to a statement from Orland Park police. There were no customers in the store at the time.
While in the office, the two men filled a garbage bag with an unknown number of cellphones and employees’ personal belongings, police said. The employees were also ordered to empty their pockets.
The two men drove off in a silver SUV with temporary license plates. Police saw the men travel onto eastbound I-80 from La Grange Road, but eventually lost them after their vehicle topped 100 mph, police said.
One suspect was described as a black man between 22 and 30 years old, standing 6-feet to 6-foot-3, police said. He had a thin build and had black dreadlocks.
The other suspect was also described as a black man between 22 and 27 years old, standing 5-foot-6 to 6-feet, police said. He had a medium build and also had black dreadlocks.
Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call police at (708) 349-4111.
