AGAINST ALL ODDS: Men Storm, Rob GameStop Near Obama Security Zone


It should have been one of the safest areas in the world tonight. Should have been.

As President Barack Obama attended a fundraiser at Fullerton and Janssen this evening, up to six hooded men battled bumper-to-bumper traffic to successfully storm and rob a nearby GameStop, escaping with hundreds of dollars in merchandise. No arrests have been made.

Huddled inside of the store's rest room, an employee dialed 911 at 6:35PM to report that that up to six offenders had barged in, turned off the surveillance system, and were helping themselves to the store's Xbox collection.

After lugging merchandise to their get-away car—a white General Motors SUV with tinted rear windows—the crew drove into jam-packed traffic on Fullerton Avenue and seemingly disappeared.

Descriptions of two offenders have been narrowed down:
1) Male, black, dark complected, 5'10" tall, 185 lbs, wearing a black hoodie and gray pants
2) Male, black, dark complected, 5'7" tall, 160 lbs, wearing all black.
The incident is recorded as a strong-arm robbery in CPD record HX208654.

GameStop is located at the far southwest corner of our sprawling 19th police district.

  3. You better believe this was recorded as a strong armed robbery. You could not possible sweep this offence under the rug.

    1. Stranger things have happened. Much stranger. But it started with strong-arm classification tonight. Pending review(s), of course.

  4. Maybe they will consider armed security to deter future incursions ? Or maybe they will install more cameras, let the insurance handle it and hope that no store staff are harmed next time .

  5. True opportunists. I wonder how many cars were stolen down the Fullerton strip tonight.

  6. Oh, come now. The powers-that-be will manipulate whatever needs to be manipulated, and in the end it will be determined that others only "perceived" this crime. Right? Because this is just too downright BRAZEN and will make Tunney, Rahm, Vulagrious, etc., look bad, and it will skew their crimeless data.

  7. And you know what's funny? I was on Sheffield just north of Fullerton. After picking up my daughter, we were not allowed to drive south on Sheffield to Fullerton. Or to drive North on Fullerton past Montana. We were only allowed to take an alley that ran east between these two streets, which essentially put us almost at this address's back yard. How was that more secure?

    1. If that wasn't a shit-show, I don't know what is. And Lake Shore Drive was shut down from Belmont to the Stevenson highway!!!! Aside from the robbers, there were legit hard working people caught in that mess just trying to make a living. I'm sure he's proud.

  8. Not too dumb of an idea... I'm sure they were aware that the police were focusing on the presidential detail, and response times would be hindered so they could make an easy getaway. Obviously it worked.

  9. "You are just one person (store) that got robbed". (Quote form Tunny) At least the President of the United States suffered no harm. That looks GREAT on our stats . . . We can claim that the President was not harmed in Chicago in 2014 from January until April. I am sure that there will be press conference from Rahm, Vulgarius,Tunny and the Police Supt and be headlines in the controlled media on Friday. What a joke this city is.
