Kane County Sheriff’s police took Elburn resident Cheryl A. Ginley into custody Wednesday morning for her part in the recent Sugar Grove Jewel robbery.

Ginley, 48, whose last known address was in the 400 block of W. Shannon St., Elburn, fled in her vehicle when Sugar Grove police captured the robber, Timothy M. Fredericksen, several blocks from the store on April 14.

According to store employees, Fredericksen, 40, of the 2400 Block of N. Farnsworth, walked out of the store pushing a cart containing beer and vodka worth more than $300. As employees followed him from the store, a female accomplice later identified as Ginley fled in her vehicle, leaving Fredericksen standing in the parking lot.

There were two outstanding warrants for Ginley’s arrest, Sugar Grove police investigator John Sizer said. One warrant was from DeKalb County for failing to show up to serve a sentence, and the other for the felony retail theft at the Jewel Food Store.
