(KMOV) – Authorities charged a woman and are still looking for two suspects in connection to a robbery at a South County AT&T store where two employees were tied up.

Lakeshia Hudson, 26, was charged Friday with first-degree robbery.

Illinois State Police stopped a vehicle that matched the description given after the Wednesday morning robbery at the AT&T store in the 7300 block of S. Lindbergh. 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.

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

Authorities later arrested Hudson a short time later in Troy, Ill., after discarding about 70 phones in a nearby wooded area believed to be taken during the robbery.

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