2 Arrested in Illinois After Holdup Outside Missouri Casino
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Two St. Louis men are each jailed on $100,000 bond after being accused of robbing another man outside a St. Louis County casino before leading police on a chase into Illinois, where they were caught.
Twenty-five-year-old Maurice Wilson and 19-year-old Kenneth Wilson are charged with first-degree robbery and armed criminal action. It isn't clear if they're related.
Police said a man was robbed early Monday in the parking lot of the River City Casino. Police spotted the suspects' car and chased it into Illinois before it drove into a cornfield near Dupo.
One suspect was arrested at the scene, the other three hours later.
A woman who answered Tuesday at a home telephone listing for Maurice Wilson said she's unfamiliar with the case and can't comment.
