No bail for man accused of robbing T-Mobile store

A Cook County judge told a Chicago Heights man he “crossed the line” with his robbery of a T-Mobile store, ordering him to be held Sunday without bail.

Jafonta Long, 22, of the 1200 block of South Barbara Lane, is charged with five counts of armed robbery, two counts of aggravated assault of a police officer with a firearm, and burglary, police said.

Long was arrested Friday in the 4600 block of South St. Louis, according to police, after he allegedly committed an armed robbery at the store in the 4600 block of South Kedzie. Court records show he took from his victims their money, wallets, a cell phone and a purse.

He is also accused of pointing a Taurus revolver at officers, according to court records.

“You have become a dangerous individual,” Judge Adam Bourgeois Jr. said to Long as he refused him bail.
