JOLIET, Ill. (WAND) - Joliet Police arrested three men after they allegedly robbed a Verizon Wireless store and tied up the store's employees.
Officers responded to a hold up alarm at the Verizon Wireless store in the 2900 block of W. Jefferson St. around 12:45 p.m. on Saturday, according to police.

Police lost sight of the car after the suspects sped off.
A Will County Sheriff's Deputy later found the vehicle in the 15000 block of Janas Dr. in Lockport.

During the foot chase, the other two suspects took in the vehicle. They were found a short time later in the 14000 block of W. Hickory Ave. in Lemont where the vehicle had struck a snow bank.
Two guns and all the stolen items were recovered. The vehicle used in the robbery was reported stolen out of Indiana.
