A 21-year-old man allegedly hijacked a Jeep Cherokee while armed with a revolver and also stole cash and a cellphone from his victim, according to a criminal complaint.
About 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jordan M. Peete, 21, of the first block of East Zarley Boulevard was arrested by Joliet police on charges of armed robbery with a firearm, aggravated vehicular hijacking and unlawful use of a weapon by felon.
Peete was booked into the Will County jail after his arrest.
Peete allegedly committed a robbery against a man on Nov. 1, according to a criminal complaint.
Joliet police investigated the case. On April 22, Will County Judge Roger Rickmon signed a warrant for Peete’s arrest. The warrant carried a $500,000 bond.
According to the warrant, Peete's last known address was in the 100 block of Carriage Lane in Joliet.
The complaint alleged Peete was armed with an H&R revolver when he robbed a man of his cash and cellphone by “threatening the imminent use of force.”
Peete also took the Cherokee while armed with the gun, according to the complaint.
Peete was charged with unlawful use of a weapon by felon because he was previously convicted of residential burglary, according to the complaint.
On Dec. 20, 2016, Peete pleaded guilty to residential burglary. He was sentenced to four years in prison.
