A second suspect has been arrested in connection to the armed robbery of the 7-Eleven in Wilmette last Thursday, Wilmette Police reports state. 

Leroy Regan, 38, of Grayslake was arrested Sat. August 17 after fleeing from the scene. A K-0 from the Evanston Police Department tracked Regan down to the 500 block of Knox Ave., and a canvass of that area produced a witness who was able to provide a description of Regan's getaway car. 

Wilmette detectives followed up on leads from similar cases in Lake County, which resulted in the identification of Regan. He was identified in a line-up and made statements implicating himself in the robbery. 

Regan has been implicated in seven similar instances of armed robbery in Lake County since August 5.
