Two Waukegan men have been arrested in connection with the armed robbery of Papa John’s Pizza on Monday, Feb. 13, and that of the Citigo gas station on Friday, Feb. 10.

They were identified by Waukegan Police as Joshua Collins, 20, and Terry Carter-Kilgore, 19, both from  the 1900 block of North Lewis Avenue. Each has been charged with two counts of armed robbery.

Papa John’s in the 1300 block of North Green Bay Road was robbed at gunpoint and an undisclosed amount of the money was taken, the clerk told police. A similar incident happened at the Citigo in the 2200 block of North Lewis Avenue, police said.

According to police, Collins allegedly entered both businesses and robbed them at gunpoint. Police said Carter-Kilgore helped plan and execute both robberies.

Both suspects are being held in Lake County Jail with bond set at $500,000 for each, with their next court hearing on March 14.

Waukegan Police Chief Wayne Walles attributed their arrests to “positive relationship between the community and police.” Without that relationship, he said, “these cases would become extremely difficult to resolve.”
