Homewood McDonald's Robbed: Police

The robbery occurred Friday, May 30 at the McDonald's on 183rd Street.

A man claiming to have a gun—and a hankering for McDonald's chicken sandwiches—pulled through the drive-thru and demanded the cashier turn over the cash drawer, according to reports. 

The robbery happened May 30 around 9:45 p.m., at the restaurant located in the 3100 block of 183rd Street. The suspect had ordered a chicken sandwich, but decided to tack on another after pulling forward to pay.

When the cashier—a juvenile—asked for additional money, the man demanded she hand over the cash drawer, threatening that he had a gun. 

The man yelled at the cashier, stating, " I'm not (expletive) playing with you. I will shoot you."

The cashier handed over the drawer. The cashier told police she never saw a gun. 

The man was described as a black male, approximately 30 years old and 6 feet tall weighing 200 pounds, with "extremely smooth skin." He was driving an olive green Kia Sorento with no license plates. 

Police were unable to locate the suspect.

It does not happen every week in Naperville, like it does here. Comparing homewood to Naperville! Nice try!

Robbery does not happen every week in Homewood. Robberies reported for Homewood for the past 4 years (2013 data have not been released): 2012 - 17, 2011 - 14, 2010 - 23, 2009 - 19. Prior to 2009, Illinois only reported for cities with populations over 100,000.

Does anyone know what happened last Friday evening next to Great Lakes Bank on Dixie? About eight police cars, four young individuals handcuffed on the parkway. More police cars and an ambulance at a house a few blocks west. It was a wild scene.

Gerald, the four individuals were caught stealing cell phones. They would approach people on the street and ask to make a call. Then get in the car and pull off. This time, one of them didn't make it in the car, and by the time they came around to pick them up the cops were on the scene. Several of my neighbors were around, and we all pieced together the license plate and had good descriptions. Apparently, there were several phones in their car. The last victim also ran after the car and was dragged behind it for a short time. I heard that there will be felony charges against them.

Does anyone have information on the negotiations between Thornton and Homewood for Brown Derby Rd? Menards supposedly wants to expand and will need Homewood's portion of the road.
