CAHOKIA, Ill. (KMOV.com) -- Four adult and one juvenile are in police custody after being accused of robbing an Imo's Pizza driver on Thursday.

Police say the victim was delivering a pizza to a home on Westwood Drive and when he arrived he was met by two female suspects who began discussing the transaction. Then, two male suspects came from the side of the house and said they had a gun but never displayed it.

The suspects took an undisclosed amount of money as well as the pizzas. The victim called police, who responded with canines that tracked the suspects to another residence in Westwood Drive.

Vortex Bolden, 18, Keombra James, 18, Linda Thomas, 17, and Jessica Williams were all arrested and charged Saturday with aggravated robbery and bail was set at $50,000 for each suspect.

Police say the juvenile is being held in the St. Clair County Juvenile Detention Center.

The four adults are being held in the Cahokia jail.
