CLAYTON, Mo. (KMOX) – A woman from northern Illinois faces charges in two states in connection with a cell phone store robbery in St. Louis County, Missouri.

St. Louis County police say 26-year-old Lakeshia Monique Hudson is charged with first-degree robbery for a recent hold-up at the AT&T Store on South Lindbergh. She’s accused of driving the getaway car for two men accused of tying-up store employees and taking cell phones and accessories.

Illinois State Police stopped the car on Interstate 55 near Route 157 in the Metro-East. The two male suspects ran away from the scene. Troopers captured Hudson and accuse her of trying to discard 70 phones in a wooded area.

Hudson’s bond is set at $50,000 in St. Louis County, Mo. and $200,000 in Madison County, Illinois.
