Two charged in suspected theft ring
LA GRANGE PARK – Two people were charged with felony crimes for their roles in a theft ring that is suspected in 10 thefts over the past six months in La Grange Park.
Alphera Sullivan, 56, of Rockford, and Keith Pierce, 47, of Chicago, were arrested April 4 in Hillside after leaving a Target store at 130 S. Mannheim Road. A cashier called police after noticing a suspicious check that was offered as payment. Police had Sullivan and Pierce under surveillance and were already waiting in the parking lot, where they were arrested and then held at the La Grange Park Police Department along with a third person, who was later released.
Sullivan and Pierce are suspected to be part of a group that has been targeting victims at restaurants and grocery stores throughout the Chicagoland area and as far away as St. Louis, Mo.
