NORMAL, Ill. – At attempted robbery at Target left three suspects in custody of the Normal Police Department.

According to NPD at approximately 2 p.m. NPD was notified by a citizen regarding two suspicious vehicles driving slowly through the Target parking lot.

Upon arriving at the retail store NPD was able to locate one of the vehicles, which officers were able to ascertain had been involved in an armed robbery in Champaign, Ill. the previous week.

Officers then moved inside the store and were then notified by employees that they believed four suspects were going to commit theft.
