Armed Robbery Of Concession Stand Nets Cheese Fries—And 8 Years In Prison


It’s one of the most memorable robbery stories we’ve ever told. And, today, justice was served. Cheese fries, however, were not.

21-year-old Ambassador E. Harney has received an 8-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to taking an order of cheese fries at gunpoint during a June 2015 armed robbery of the Waveland Bowl concession stand, 3700 N. Western.

The state dropped seven other charges in its plea deal.

Prosecutors said Harney pointed a handgun at the bowling alley’s concession stand cashier around 11PM on June 13, 2015, and then fled with a piping hot order of delicious cheese fries. Retail price: $3.

He was arrested less than 15 minutes later on a nearby side street.

Harney lists his home address as the Howard Brown Health Center at 4025 N. Sheridan.

  1. The Ambassador has been appointed to the Illinois Department of Corrections. His first state dinner will not be cheese fries but rather mystery meat and soggy green beans. Enjoy good sir.

  2. Totally don't get how this happens? Glad for a stiff sentence even for a seemingly petty crime (albeit with a gun), but lots of othe gun crimes (or other serious crimes being committed by career criminals) are resulting in much lighter sentences, including probation. What gives? Just heard about a case where the states atty and defense counsel agreed on a particular jail term for an offender but Judge Luckman wouldn't agree and let the guy off with time served (a very short time) because no one was hurt.

    1. Males need shelter, too. Especially young gay males. There's shelters for women and children.

  8. There's probably a prison recipe for cheese fries. From the commissary (assuming someone loads his account)... Potato chips mixed with cheeto's then stand in line for the nasty microwave. Good luck! See you in the hood in 3 or 4 years....asshole!

    1. He got 8 years, so what, maybe next year until he's re-arrested and on this blog again? Maybe not until 2018...

  11. males with guns play it off that be gay need to housed in a prison These are not young innocent gay men. They are liars and your 20 something fresh out the the university with sociology degrees are being played a fool. These hardened severely mentally ill liars will tell your stupid councilors anything that want to hear in exchange for free shelters and meals (harboring) in our neighborhood since there is a WRONG feeling that criminals need protection of the rights of law abiding tax paying living down in lake view.
