CHICAGO (CBS) — Three teens are being held on high bonds – after being arrested in a food-delivery robbery sting.
Tervon Moore, 17, Keith Lockhart, 18, and Justin Hearon, 18, were all charged with armed robbery. Police say they would call in fake orders only to rob the delivery driver who arrived.
They were arrested following an undercover sting in which an officer posed as a worker delivering a pizza.

An undercover officer arrived in the 2900 block of South Wabash and was met by Hearon, who attempted to lure him to the rear of the building for payment, police said.
The officer refused to go to the rear of the building and was approached by Moore, who was concealing his hand in his sleeve, police said. Other officers moved in to back up the officer and discovered that Moore had a 10-inch butcher knife concealed in his sleeve.
The suspects were taken into custody without further incident.
Bond was set at $250,000 for Hearon and he is next scheduled to appear in court Dec. 21, according to the Cook County Sheriff’s website. Bond was set at $500,000 for Moore and he is next scheduled to appear in court Dec. 6. Bond was set for Lockhart at $250,000 and he is next scheduled to appear in court Dec. 6.
