Clerk Maced As Shoplifting Mob Strikes Halloween Store

Four shoplifters pepper sprayed a clerk and stole costumes during a Monday afternoon robbery of Halloween Hallway, the pop-up holiday store that operates in the former Walgreens space at 2801 N. Broadway.

The crew entered the store around 3:30 p.m. and blasted the employee with “mace” when they tried to interrupt the theft.

Police said the offenders are four black females who were last seen running eastbound on Diversey. One of the thieves carried a large pink purse.
