2 men, teen arrested in connection with Bolingbrook robbery: cops

Alleged victim drove suspects to Wheeling to obtain drugs, police said

Two men and a juvenile were arrested in connection with a drug transaction that turned into an armed robbery in Bolingbrook, according to police.

Deandre Rozier, 24, of Bolingbrook and Keyondra Reed, 22, of Georgia were arrested on charges of armed robbery.

A 16-year-old was arrested on charges of armed robbery, aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and possession of a controlled substance.

About 3:51 a.m. Monday, officers were sent to the 300 block of Woodcreek Drive for a report of an armed robbery, according to a Bolingbrook police news release. Officers were able to locate the alleged male victim of the incident, police said.

The man told the officers that he was approached about 2:30 a.m. by three people in the area who were later identified as Rozier, Reed and a 16-year-old juvenile, police said. Court records show Rozier has an address in Woodcreek Drive.

The two men and teen asked the man if he knew where they could purchase narcotics, police said, and the man drove them to Wheeling to obtain drugs.

“During the drug transaction, one of the subjects pulled out a handgun and stole the drugs,” police said.

The man was then told to drive Rozier, Reed and the teen back to Bolingbrook, police said.

“Upon arrival back in Bolingbrook, the subjects pulled the gun and a knife and robbed the victim, stealing his wallet and cellphone,” police said.

Officers located the three suspects in an apartment near where the robbery occurred, along with the handgun that was used in the incident, police said.

Rozier and Reed were taken to the Will County jail. The juvenile was sent to River Valley Juvenile Detention Center.

Judge Brian Barrett set Rozier’s bond at $10,000 and Reed’s bond at $15,000.

Rozier posted 10% of his bond and he was released from jail Tuesday. Reed remains locked up.
