Charges have been filed in the armed robbery of the Casey's General Store on Broadway in Alton earlier this month. The store was held up by a man with a hatchet just before 11am on Saturday, December 5. Investigators believe 33-year-old Justin D. Joyce of the 1100 block of Washington Avenue in Alton is the man they are looking for.
K-9 units were called in to help track the suspect after he fled on foot, but lost the trail after a brief search. Alton Police Detective Emily Hejna tells The Big Z Joyce is not in custody.
