ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. - A second arrest has been made in an armed robbery that occurred at a suburban jewelry store early last year.
Michael Nichols, 40, of Griffith, Ind., was arrested Feb. 5 on one count of armed robbery, a Class X felony.
The robbery occurred in January 2023 at a jewelry store in the Downtown Business District in Arlington Heights.

The investigation into the jewelry heist was turned over to the Criminal Investigation Bureau. On Nov. 2, 2023, 27-year-old Cornell E. Martinez was arrested after being identified as one of the suspects in the armed robbery.
Nichols' detention hearing was set for Feb. 8. His next status hearing is set for March 1, 2024.
