LANSING, Ill. (December 7, 2022) – The U.S. Attorney’s Office has charged two South Holland men and a juvenile in connection to an armed robbery that took place on the north end of Lansing on October 31, 2022. Two of the three individuals were apprehended the same day as the incident, and a federal arrest warrant is currently active for the third alleged robber.

Robbery at Chase Bank

According to the FBI, the three individuals robbed an armored vehicle courier at gunpoint while restocking an ATM at Chase Bank, located at 16767 Torrence Avenue in Lansing. According to the Lansing Police Department, the indictment says that the trio displayed handguns and also demanded the courier open compartments inside the truck where additional money was located. Just over $1 million in cash was taken.

The individuals then fled the scene in a vehicle. While en route to the area, LPD officers saw the offending vehicle driving south on Torrence.

“Before we could even catch up to that vehicle, it was gone, starting to get on the expressway and it ran into another vehicle. Fortunately the person in that other vehicle was not seriously injured,” Lansing Police Chief Al Phillips told the Village Board on November 1.

After the crash, the three suspects fled on foot, with Corey Singleton, 21, of South Holland, and the juvenile being apprehended by the Lansing Police Department.

LPD also recovered the stolen cash.

Arrest warrant

According to the FBI, the third individual involved is thought to be Darrell Singleton, 18, of South Holland. A warrant is out for his arrest and he is currently charged with interference with commerce by threats or violence, and bank theft.
