MUST BE THE SHOES: Walgreens Robbed By Man Armed With Hunting Knife; Shoplifters Get $1.2K At American Apparel

Police say a man entered the Walgreens at Belmont and Sheffield shortly before 10PM Friday, pulled out a hunting knife, and demanded cash from the register. He was last seen running eastbound on Belmont with about $300 of the store’s money.

Officers built a description of the offender after speaking with witnesses and reviewing surveillance video: He’s a black man with a teardrop tattoo on his right eye, 5’5” tall with a muscular build and a short haircut. He wore a plain red hoodie, light blue jeans, and $170 white and black patent leather Air Jordans. (CPD case HY226165.)

Earlier Friday evening, a crew of shoplifters stole an estimated $1,200 worth of merchandise in a raid on the nearby American Apparel store at 929 Belmont.

Store employees told police that three black male offenders fled the store and jumped into a red Volvo bearing an Illinois plate that begins with E25 or E52. They were last seen speeding eastbound on Belmont around 6:05PM.
