Police have made an arrest in the robbery of a tanning salon that led to the lockdown of a school in the suburbs earlier this week.

Twenty-two-year-old Tomasz Chraca is charged in connection with the robbery of Ultimate Exposure Tanning in lombArd on Wednesday. As a precaution, nearby Willowbrook High School was locked down right after the robbery.

The suspect is also charged in the robbery of a tanning salon on Chicago's Northwest Side later in the day. Another man who police say was the getaway driver in that case has also been charged.
