A man has been released on a recognizance bond after he allegedly committed a home invasion and ordered a man at gunpoint to withdraw money from a bank in Zion.
Dana Andrews, 60, of the 2400 block of Gideon Avenue in Zion, was charged with home invasion, armed robbery, aggravated robbery, four counts of residential burglary, robbery and driving on a revoked license.
Andrews entered a residence in the 2300 block of Joanna Avenue in Zion on February 22, according to a criminal complaint filed in Lake County Circuit Court.
Andrews, who was armed with a gun, ordered a male victim from the residence to drive him to a local bank, the complaint said.
Andrews ordered the victim to withdraw cash and then he struck the victim, who is over 60 years old, in the face with the gun, the complaint said.
The complaint alleged that Andrews committed similar offenses to the same elderly victim on several occasions in February and March.
Police officers with the Zion Police Department arrested Andrews during a traffic stop near 24th Street and Gideon Avenue on March 8.
During a bond hearing, Lake County Judge Christopher Lombardo initially ordered Andrews held in the Lake County Jail on a $300,000 cash bond, meaning he would need to post 10% to be released.
On Tuesday, Lombardo allowed Andrews to be released on a recognizance bond without needing to post any cash, court documents show.
A status of preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 30.
