SAY CHEESE: Felony Charges In Cheese Fry Robbery

Charges of armed robbery with a handgun and unlawful use of a weapon were filed today against a 20-year-old man in connection with a weekend hold-up in which police said he netted an order of cheese fries.

Ambassador E. Harney, who gave a home address in the 3700 block of Lake Shore Drive during a previous arrest, is being held in lieu of $150,000 bond.

Harney's adult criminal history is tame in comparison to these latest allegations. Listed as convictions in his Cook County Criminal Court records are:
  • Criminal trespassing at the Boystown Whole Foods in 2013.
  • Reckless conduct one month later in the 3800 block of N. Western.
  • Jumping a turnstile at the Belmont CTA station three days after that.
Harney was arrested Saturday night after an alleged victim identified him at Waveland Bowl. Police say Harney ditched a weapon during a brief foot chase prior to his arrest.
