Five suspects are being held on bonds of $1 million each after an attempted armed robbery at an ethnic Mexican grocery store Thursday in Vernon Hills.

Three suspects were arrested at the scene.

Local schools were put on lockdown as a precautionary measure while law enforcement officers from nearby jurisdictions were conducting a foot search of the area. The other two suspects were apprehended a short time later.
