A man and a woman with warrants out for their arrest were taken into custody on Friday in north suburban Zion.

Dewayne Smith-Williams, 22, was wanted for felonies including armed robbery, aggravated discharge of a firearm and aggravated battery from an incident that happened on Jan. 14, according to the Lake County sheriff’s department.

Smith-Williams was found hiding in a home in the 2300 block of Joppa Avenue in Zion after police received information about his location, deputies said.
