An armed robbery suspect is under arrest in Evanston.

Police say they believe the armed robbery was the result of a drug deal gone bad because the person who reported the robbery was uncooperative.

Authorities were able to locate the suspect's vehicle near Main Street and Ridge Avenue. The suspect tried to take off but crashed into other cars in the 1700-block of Main Street.

No one was hurt.

Police say they found a gun, crack cocaine and money in the car.
