Two men who robbed a south suburban convenience store and pizza parlor at gunpoint in November 2011 have been sentenced to prison.

Anthony Albritton and Eric Goudeau pleaded guilty Tuesday to armed robbery, and Judge Donald R. Havis sentenced Albritton to 15 years in prison and Goudeau to 11, according to Cook County State's Attorney's office spokeswoman Lisa Gordon.

The men pleaded guilty to robbing a Little Caesar's Pizza and a Walgreen's pharmacy, both in the 13500 block of South Cicero Avenue in Crestwood. A then-16-year-old Park Forest boy was also charged in the Nov. 13, 2011, robberies, according to Crestwood police.

Officers arrived at the Walgreen's and saw three masked suspects running east from the store. An officer chased them until they split up and ran in different directions.

The officer continued pursuing one suspect on foot and saw him throw a gun to the ground, police said. Officers later apprehended that suspect.

Several police agencies, including Palos Hills, Palos Heights, Midlothian, Alsip, Robbins, a Cook County Sheriff's K-9 unit and a police helicopter assisted with the search for the other two suspects, who got away, police said.

Several days later, authorities located and apprehended both, and all three confessed to the crimes and were charged with multiple counts of armed robbery, according to police.

Albritton, 21 at the time; and Goudeau, then 23, were residents of Robbins, who were both on probation after being convicted in November 2009 of a string of burglaries in Crestwood, authorities said.

Court information on the teenage boy was not available Thursday evening.
