Sulphur Springs, Texas, Police Captain James Sanders said Aaron D. Anderson, 20, of New Lenox and Dorian Yamini, 23, of Richton Park were taken into custody without incident about 7:30 a.m. in his city, located approximately 80 miles northeast of Dallas.
Sanders said the two are scheduled to be arraigned Thursday in Hopkins County court.
Both are charged with unlawful possession of a handgun by a felon, a felony. Anderson, who was driving the Honda Civic they were in, is charged with the additional felony of evading arrest in a vehicle.
The two also are expected to be extradited back to Illinois on the armed robbery charge in Will County.
The arrest of Anderson and Yamini came less than two weeks after the March 7 arrest of Chavell Anderson, 21, of Hazel Crest, who was charged with armed robbery for his alleged involvement in the Frankfort Square attack. Aaron Anderson and Yamini were named in Will County arrest warrants, charged like Chavell Anderson with armed robbery in the March 4 attack. The Andersons aren't related.
The three men allegedly took the 69-year-old Frankfort Square woman from her neighborhood, drove her around, withdrew money from an automatic teller machine using her bank card number and then dropped her off about midnight near the intersection of 167th Street and Interstate 57.
Chavell Anderson, Aaron Anderson and Dorian Yamini were identified from video surveillance at a Wal-Mart, where they allegedly attempted to use the victim's charge card.
Today’s arrest in Texas, Sanders said, was triggered after a Sulphur Springs police officer attempted to stop the two men in their Honda Civic for a traffic violation about 7:15 a.m. as they were going westbound on Interstate 30.
Anderson led the officer, who was driving a Dodge Charger, on a several-mile high-speed chase from Sulphur Springs into unincorporated Hopkins County and back into Sulphur Springs, Sanders said.
During the chase, Anderson switched directions, driving onto a service road, where his vehicle eventually encountered spike strips placed by Texas Public Safety troopers.
Although the spikes shredded his front and rear tires, Anderson continued fleeing, Sanders said.
"He stopped when he topped a hill and saw four police cars in front of him," Sanders said.
Sanders said at least one handgun was recovered from the vehicle.
Six police officers will be filing reports on the incident, but "it was uneventful as pursuits go," Sanders said.
