One of the two suspects in an armed robbery on Pratt Court photographed using a stolen credit card at a convenience store in Skokie has turned himself in to Evanston police.

Timothy Blue, 23, who lives in the 1800 block of Hartrey Avenue, surrendered after his image was depicted on video surveillance at the 7-Eleven store at 3441 Church St. at 1:35 a.m. Monday.
