Welp. Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s local CVS Pharmacy got robbed today.
It’s the second time the store at 4051 N. Lincoln has fallen victim to an armed robbery since May 22. And it’s at least the fifth time the store has been robbed in the past 18 months. Cops think one offender is responsible for the four most recent hold-ups.
A heavyset white man entered the store around 3:30 this morning, brandished an X-Acto knife, and robbed the cashier of about $70. The offender is about 45 years old, stands about 5’2″ tall, weighs about 180 pounds, and wore black rim glasses and brown shorts.
That’s consistent with the description of the man who robbed the store at 2:40AM on May 22.
It’s also consistent with the description of the man who robbed the store at 4AM on July 24, 2015.
Not to mention being consistent with the description of the man who robbed the store at 5:15AM on February 17, 2015.
The offender, however, is not believed to be the man who robbed the store at gunpoint at 5AM on January 15, 2015.
