(KMOV) -- Police have arrested one female in connection to a robbery at a South County AT&T store where two employees were tied up. Police are still looking for two men also believed connected to the robbery.

Illinois State Police stopped a vehicle that matched the description given after the morning robbery on Wednesday.

During the attempted stop, two black males fled on foot while a female fled in the suspected vehicle, said police.

Police later arrested the 26-year-old woman a short time late in Troy, Ill., after discarding about 70 phones believed to be taken during the robbery and dropped off in a nearby wooded area.

Police are still searching for the two other men who fled the scene.

The robbery was reported at the AT&T store in the 7300 block of South Lindbergh around 9:50 a.m. Wednesday. When officers arrived on scene, they found two workers tied up in the back of the store.

Police said one suspect displayed a handgun before they fled out of the south exit of the store.
