State’s Attorney Wants More Information Before Making Decision on Charges in Armed Robbery and Home Invasion Case

September 14, 2016

Marion County State’s Attorney Matt Wilzbach wants more investigation by Centralia Police before he makes a decision on if a 24-year-old Centralia man will be charged in connection with a home invasion and armed robbery last Thursday.

Shaudre Pickett of North Elm was arrested by Centralia Police Sunday night in connection with the incident at the Anthonette Strowder home on McKee Street. He had returned to the Strowder home at her request. Pickett told police he had agreed to try and dispel talk that he was involved in the robbery. Instead, police were called after at least one young person in the home identified Pickett as one of the those who was involved in the robbery.

Wilzbach says he wants Pickett’s alibi checked out and further investigation to see if Pickett can be better tied to the case. He notes Pickett is not being released because he is wanted on a Cook County warrant for possession of a firearm with a defaced serial number. If adequate information is available, Wilzbach says Pickett could be charged before his case in Chicago is over and he can then be brought back to Marion County.

Strowder said three black males armed with handguns entered her home early last Thursday morning and stole money and jewelry. Centralia Police are still searching for others involved in the armed robbery.
