Blue Island man, teen charged in robbery
Posted in the Blue Island Forum
A Blue Island man and a teenager were charged with two counts of aggravated robbery each after Chicago police tracked them through a cell phone they had stolen early Wednesday morning, police said.
Anthony Castaneda, 17, of the 2400 block of New Street, and Rolando Ojeda Jr., 23, of the 2400 block Orchard Street, allegedly approached two men in the 10600 block of South Campbell Avenue in Chicago and demanded their belongings at gunpoint, police said.
Police officers responded to the West Beverly neighborhood at about 3:40 a.m., where they were met by the victims, two men in their early 20s, who said the offenders stuck a gun to their backs and demanded everything in their pockets, according to police. The victims handed over their wallets and a cell phone.
Officers immediately learned that the phone had a tracking device, which led them to nearby Blue Island, to a parked Chevrolet truck with its engine running and lights on.
As officers approached the vehicle, they noticed two men matching the description of the robbers, police said. As police continued their investigation, they learned the offenders also had the victims’ credit cards, a replica handgun and the cell phone.
Chicago Ald. Matt O’Shea (19th) praised the police work involved.
“These officers exercised quick thinking that led to the immediate arrest of two offenders posing a threat to citizens,” he said.
Good work! Reflecting good training!
Rolando ojeda looks like a fish who's affraid of a fish hahah
Not sure if it's the same guy, but there is a good chance it will be. You can see a picture of Rolando Ojeda on Facebook. Type the name then Blue Island in the search bar.
Those who are shaking their heads in disagreement might want to clean out your own closets and or your kids closet.
Yes you are right.. Anthony is a great kid except for the pending ARMED ROBBERY case where a HANDGUN was displayed.
