With the help of Chicago police and the use of fingerprint technology, Oak Park Police arrested a man Tuesday who allegedly held up an Oak Park gas station in August, displaying a firearm.
Marquelle Williams, 31, of the 3100 block of West Cortland, Chicago, was picked up in the 1700 block of South State Street after police found a match for the fingerprints taken from the door of the Circle K/Shell gas station at 401 Madison St.
Police said Williams, wearing a white floppy fisherman's hat and white T-shirt, entered the store around 9:40 p.m. on Aug. 26 and pointed a black handgun at the clerk. He then allegedly demanded the employee place all the money in the register into a plastic shopping bag. Loss was estimated at $175.
Williams was identified in a lineup by the clerk as the offender, according to police. He was charged with armed robbery with a firearm.
