DiGiorno's Pizza Robbery May Put Local Menace In Prison

Green...and a $5.29 pizza | DiGiorno, Chicago Police Dept
A long-time menace of merchants in nearby Lincoln Park is now facing felony robbery charges for threatening a CVS Pharmacy employee who tried to stop him from stealing two DiGiorno pizzas, police said.

Mitchell Green of Uptown entered the CVS at Lincoln and Fullerton around 11 p.m. on October 15 and tried to walk out with the two pizzas, valued at $10.58.

When the store clerk tried to stop Green, he turned around and tried to slap her while yelling, “You better get back from me,” prosecutors said.

Police responded, talked to the employees, then left.

Moments later, 33-year-old Green re-entered the store and announced, “I’m back! Now whatcha gonna do?” and proceeded to take a case of Goose Island beer out of the cooler and walk out the front door with it.

Police responded again, talked to the employees again, then left.

A few minutes later, Green walked back into the store and took a 4-pack of Matilda beer and another 6-pack of Goose Island along with four beach towels and eight umbrellas. He walked out the front door and into a nearby park.

Cops soon found Green and arrested him.

Police later learned that Green had been convicted of retail theft nine times in the past ten years. CPD records show he has been arrested eight times near Fullerton and Lincoln over the past two years. He's been arrested another eight times near Clark and Diversey and the Belmont Red Line station.

Green is a member of the Traveling Vice Lords street gang, according to police records.

  1. Prison? Nah the system will straighten him out, 17th times the charm. Non violent offenders just have to have some paperwork drawn up and then can get back to their menacing in Chicago.

  2. We need three strikes and your out. Obviously the judge's aren't doing their job. Voters don't have the information necessary to get these bozo's off the bench!!!!

  4. Sounds like he was throwing a party in the park. Slight problem, how were you going to heat up the pizza? Ahh the life of crime, 10 years and all you have to show for it is frozen pizza and lawn chairs. Looooooooooooser.

  6. I thought the gangs were a bit more organized to buy a bro a pizza when he was down on his luck.

    1. I'm guessing his gang career is not going well.

  7. This smart-ass Green is probably already back out on the streets by now.

  8. What's really amazing is that there was an employee at CVS to confront Green.
    Good luck to you trying to find an employee there when you need one.

  9. He's clearly missing out on a whole bunch of rewards points!
    Way to go Cop's. Now, CVS- make sure to pay that cashier while she goes to court! Participate in the process of keeping this guy locked up!

  10. So if he has been arrested for crimes 8 times in the last 2 years, why isn't he in prison? The fact that he has apparently experienced no consequences for his crimes is probably what makes him so bold as to repeatedly walk into a store and openly steal from it.

  11. This was one of the more entertaining articles I've read on here lately. This guy has no sense of self-preservation. I'm almost sorry they caught him if it means no more comical stories about his shoplifting.

    In the year 2016, Green has been arrested 10 times. The longest period he went without being arrested was 53 days; the shortest was a week.

  14. Party in the park and use CVS as your pantry. Nice arrangement. Does CVS offer check-out with payment through ankle monitors?
