Police search for accomplice in Jewel robbery
by Susan O’Neill
An attempt by the Elburn police to arrest Elburn resident Cheryl A. Ginley for her part in the recent Sugar Grove Jewel robbery has so far been unsuccessful, confirmed a department representative on Wednesday.
Ginley, 48, whose last known address was in the 400 block of W. Shannon St., Elburn, was described as a white woman with gray hair who fled in her vehicle when Sugar Grove police captured Timothy M. Fredericksen several blocks from the store on April 14.
According to store employees, Frederickson, 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 are currently two outstanding warrants for Ginley’s arrest, Sugar Grove police investigator John Sizer explained. One warrant is from DeKalb County for failing to show up to serve a sentence, and the other is for felony retail theft of the Jewel Food Store.
â€œAt this point, she’s a fugitive,â€ Sizer said.
