13-Oct-17 – A man with a knife left the Jewel-Osco on State Street with six stolen bottles of Tequila late last month. No one was injured during the incident on September 25.

At about 8 p.m., the man was in a liquor aisle at the grocery store, placing six bottles of Hornitos tequila, worth about $130, into a shopping bag. When he walked past the last point of purchase, a store employee approached him.

According to police, the man then “displayed a folding knife blade extended out” and left the store, running west on Ohio Street.

He is described as a Hispanic male, 25 to 30 years old, five-feet-eleven-inches tall, 150 pounds, with black shaved hair and a tattoo on his neck. He was wearing a red and white Michael Jordan hat and a blue South Side Hitmen t-shirt.
