TRIPLE PLAY: Liquor-Loving Thug Robs Walgreens At Knifepoint. Again.

A knife-wielding offender took bottles of liquor from the Walgreens at Halsted and Barry at 3:55PM yesterday. This is at least the third time that the same scenario has played out at that store since September.

The description of Monday's robber is very similar to the two earlier incidents: Male, black, 5'6" tall, 140 pounds, 35-40 years old, wearing all black clothing, a 3/4-length coat, carrying a black backpack and a shopping bag.

He was last seen heading eastbound on Briar Street from Halsted.

Recorded as an armed robbery with a knife in CPD case #HW581965.

  1. They've been overdue for the bullet proof glass at the counters, especially at the 24 hour stores. It's dangerous enough for the legit customers entering/exiting.

  2. Alderman or police should force them to hire private security

  4. Since the Alderman and Police Chief ARE the problem, they are in no position to force anything of their constituents that they flagrantly disregard when they aren't lying to them.

    1. Don't forget to put the mayor in that category too.
