A brother and sister from south suburban Lemont are being held on $2 million bond.

Steven Madera, 36, and 28-year-old Jaclyn Madera are each charged with six counts of armed robbery.

Police say the siblings would drive around on Chicago's South and Southwest sides, looking for women who were alone. They often used a fake gun to rob the women during the spree in August and September.

A victim was injured in at least one case.
