Police: Man posed as Mariano's worker, robbed store

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - Police officials say a man acted as if he worked at a Mariano's on South Clark Street in order to rob the store. Officers say he crashed a newer model Jaguar after the robbery.

The incident occurred at the Mariano's located in the 1600 block of South Clark Street Tuesday night.

The 20-year-old - posing as a nightshift crew worker - was inside the store and attempting to steal money from the cash registers, police said. A loss prevention employee recognized the man from a separate robbery that occurred at a different Mariano’s store and began chasing after him.

The suspect then ran out of the store and jumped into a Jaguar, only to crash it into a building across the store’s parking lot at 1601 S. Federal St., police said. He then exited the vehicle but was soon tackled by the loss prevention employee, who held him down until officers arrived. He was taken into custody about 11:30 p.m., according to police. Charges are pending.

Police say the suspect may be a current or former employee at a different Mariano’s store.

According to a police, there are numerous surveillance cameras around the store and crime scene.
