Two Charged after Armed Robbery & Police Chase

LaraAccording to a recent article, two individuals were charged with armed robbery after holding up a bank in Altamont on Tuesday.

Annalisa McGhee and Altonio Graves were charged with armed robbery and aggravated robbery after the pair robbed the People’s Bank and Trust.

According to police, Graves walked into the bank and demanded money. This took place around 2 p.m. A staff member of the bank complied and Graves exited the bank with cash, though the exact amount he left with is unknown.

A grade school nearby was put on lockdown status after the suspect fled in its direction.

Graves ran past the school and quickly jumped into a vehicle that McGhee was driving. The two took off toward Interstate 70.
As the suspects headed into Bond County, police pursued. When county lines were being crossed, Bond County deputies put out stop sticks attempting to disable the suspects’ vehicle.

According to police, the suspects spun out of control in efforts to avoid hitting the stop sticks. After that, officers were able to take them both into custody.

Authorities have reported that Graves is currently on probation for another case in Jefferson County.
It is also true that more charges could potentially be filed against the pair, according to Effingham County Jail officials.
