A Plainfield man who police believe robbed a T-Mobile store on West Jefferson Street in February has been arrested.

Vincent L. Bond, 52, of the
16300 block of South Lexington Drive is the man who police say robbed the Metro by T-Mobile store at 2225 W. Jefferson St. on Feb. 25, according to a news release.

The Will County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that Bond “threatened employees with a gun and moved them to the back of the store while he stole money and phones.”

He was arrested at 1:15 p.m. Thursday in the 800 block of Longwood Drive, according to Joliet police. He is being held at the Will County jail on a $250,000 bond.

Deputies assisted Joliet police with the capture and arrest of Bond.

On March 4, Will County Judge Roger Rickmon signed a warrant for Bond’s arrest on a charge of aggravated robbery while indicating he was armed with a firearm.

The criminal complaint against Bond alleges he indicated he had a handgun during the robbery Feb. 25.

On Sept. 13, 2013, Bond pleaded guilty to robbery, according to court records. The bill of indictment in that case stated Bond took cash from an elderly woman by use of force.

Bond was arrested by the Joliet police in 2012. After his conviction, he was sentenced to 12 years in prison and fined $580.

Charges of burglary, aggravated battery and unlawful restraint were dropped in that case.
