DuPage County prosecutors have filed more charges against the Evanston man  who’s charged with a number of hair salons robberies in the Chicago area.

They say Jason Logsdon, 41,  also held up four businesses in the Western Suburbs, including three hair salons in Lombard and Glen Ellyn and a tobacco shop in Bensenville.
Logsdon is being held in the Cook County jail without bail.
Wednesday he was charged with a string of 11 armed robberies.

Logsdon reportedly told police he used a bb gun to rob hair salons because they were an easy target for cash to support his crack cocaine habit.

He was arrested earlier this week in Elmhurst, about seven hours after he allegedly robbed a Great Clips in Chicago’s Wicker Park. A witness supplied police with a partial license plate number and vehicle description that led to Logsdon’s arrest.
