Two robbery suspects charged with attempted murder
GURNEE, Ill. (2/25/10)--Two brothers have been charged with robbery and two counts of attempted murder for shooting multiple times at a Gurnee, Ill., police officer while fleeing a Jan. 29 robbery of Community Trust CU in Gurnee. Rashe Watkins, 33, and Julius Watkins, 29, both of Waukegan, Ill., also were charged with an Oct. 10 robbery of a bank branch in Long Grove. They are considered suspects in two other robberies of Great Lakes CU, Libertyville, and a PayDay Loan in McHenry (The News Sun Feb. 6). The men are being held on $2 million bond. The Federal Bureau of Investigation had posted a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of two men who brandished a handgun with a target-marking laser sight during the robbery of the Community Trust CU. A police officer responding to the robbery alarm saw the laser beam when one of the men fired shots at him before getting in a getaway car driven by a second man. The arrests occurred at a field house and sports and fitness center in Waukegan after a SWAT team surrounded the center and used flash grenades or concussion grenades to smoke out the men.
