A Cary couple face armed robbery charges in Kane County after they allegedly took less than $50 and a cell phone from a dress shop, Elgin Police said in a news release.

On March 6, Cordell Miller, 25, of the 400 block of Crest Drive, went into a dress shop with a handgun and demanded an employee show him the cash register, police said. After taking less than $50 and a cell phone, Miller fled the scene. The employee was not hurt.

Elgin Police Commander Glenn Theriault said Miller's 28-year-old wife, Jessica, served as the getaway driver.

Cordell and Jessica Miller, who are in custody at the Lake County Jail on unrelated armed robbery charges from Waukegan, also face armed robbery charges in McHenry County.

The Cary Police Department has said Cordell Miller has implicated himself in an armed robbery at 296 Cary-Algonquin Road.
