A number of Alton businesses have put their money together to increase the reward for the capture and successful conviction of the men that robbed Schwegel’s Grocery Store nearly two weeks ago. At least two suspects are still on the run after an armed robbery at the store on Alby Street October 6. There is new video of one of the men posted below.
The suspects took an undetermined amount of cash. Storeowner Mike Schwegel tells The Big Z he hopes the reward money, which now totals $5000, will help provide the incentive needed for someone to come forward.
