Jason Foster, 26, of the 0-100 block of N. Latrobe Ave., is charged with murder, possession of a weapon by a felon, attempted armed robbery, resisting arrest, possession of marijuana, and a warrant connecting him to a June robbery and homicide.

Jason Foster, 26, of the 0-100 block of North Latrobe Avenue, was arrested and charged with one count of Murder, Possession of a Weapon by a Felon, Attempt Armed Robbery, two counts of Resisting Arrest, Possession of Cannabis, and Issuance of a Warrant in connection with a robbery and homicide that occurred in June of 2010.
    An investigation by Area 5 Detectives determined that Foster and two accomplices took part in a robbery that resulted in one of the offenders being fatally wounded. On June 8, Foster and two accomplices robbed a pawnshop in the 5900 block of West Fullerton at gunpoint. During the course of events, one of the offenders, a male, was fatally wounded. Two of the suspects fled the crime scene.
    On September 13, at approximately 2:30 AM, 18th District officers responded to a call of a person wanted in the 800 block of North Blackhawk. Upon arrival, officers approached Foster and three other male subjects when Foster began to flee. A brief foot chase ensued, with Foster being apprehended soon after. A name check revealed that Foster was wanted on a homicide warrant issued by Area 5 Detectives. A subsequent search of the offender revealed a handgun and cannabis.
