ENCORE: Knife-Wielding Liquor Thief Returns To Walgreens

A man who stole 9 bottles of Jose Cuervo tequila two weeks ago and pulled a knife on the Walgreens employee who tried to stop him returned to the same store and stole more liquor at noontime Friday.

Fortunately, the offender did not pull a knife this time.

After escaping with several bottles of liquor, the thief fled southbound and boarded a #22 Clark bus at Wellington. Police searches of nearby buses were not fruitful.

The offender description from Friday: male, black, in his 50's, 5'7" tall, 170 pounds, short gray patchy hair, black jacket, black jeans, black shoulder bag, and a plastic Jewel-Osco shopping bag. The offender is known to police and, of course, Walgreens employees.

The incident is logged as a retail theft in Chicago Police Department case #HW488759.

  2. I don't think he's been captured yet. In the previous story about him, there is no mention of him being captured. Evidently the store employees or security don't chase him. And he is lucky enough to be able to catch a bus after the robbery. Whenever I'm trying to catch a bus, there is at least a 20 minute wait. I had no idea it was this easy to steal from Walgreen's and get away with it. I think I'm going there with my shopping list and a backpack.

    Not recommended, Anonymous. They catch up shoplifters and call the police all of the time.

  4. I don't understand how they get away waiting upwards of 10 minutes or more for a train ("last seen running towards the red line").

  5. Don't get too excited about catching this guy, Judge "let em go" Luckman at Branch 42 isn't going to send anyone to the penitentiary for trying to enjoy a drink
