A man already behind bars for one robbery has now been charged with a second–the holdup of a 7-Eleven store in northwest suburban Huntley last month.

At about 3:09 a.m. April 30, Huntley police responded to a robbery at the 7-Eleven at 12400 Princeton Dr., where a clerk said a man had displayed a black handgun before demanding money from the register, according to Huntley police.

The offender then ran out of the store and a search the area by officer and a K-9 Unit from the Kane County sheriff’s office was unsuccessful.

On May 5, Huntley police were notified of a person of interest being held by McHenry police on similar charges, and that led to 19-year-old Alize Q. L. Smith being charged with aggravated robbery while armed with a firearm, and theft under $500, according to police.

Smith, of the 11300 block of Timer Drive in Huntley is now being held in the McHenry County Jail on charges of armed robbery, aggravated robbery and theft by threat in the McHenry incient. His next court appearance is scheduled for Tuesday.

No court date has been set on the Kane County charges.
