Two arrests made after apparent armed robbery at Grand Ridge Shell station

Posted by wlpo on January 31, 2015

Two men are accused of holding up the Shell gas station in Grand Ridge.

Around 10pm Friday, a Grand Ridge officer saw a car speed away from the gas station and a chase ensued. Deputies from La Salle County and Grundy County joined in and helped to eventually stop David Downey of Ottawa and Christopher Downey of Marseilles on the Grand Ridge-Mazon Blacktop east of Route 47.

The Downey’s were arrested for armed robbery and taken to the La Salle County Jail. They’re due in court Sunday morning.

Investigators say a weapon was displayed during the gas station robbery. Deputies aren’t saying what all was allegedly stolen from the Shell station.
