  • Written by Bob Rakow

  Oak Lawn police are looking for a man who robbed Walgreen’s at 95th Street and Cicero Avenue on Saturday night.
  The man entered the store at approximately 9 p.m. and milled around for about 20 minutes before selecting a power bar and approaching the register, police said.
  The offender produced enough money to pay for the power bar, but raised his shirt to expose a black, semi-automatic weapon that had yellow coloring on the grip, according to reports.
  He told the male clerk to slowly raise the cash drawer before reaching into it and removing and undetermined amount of cash. He walked into the store’s parking lot and entered the passenger side of a grey car, police said.
  The offender was described as Hispanic, 35 to 40 years old. He wore a light-colored pullover, dark pants and gyms shoes, police said. He also wore a Chicago Bears baseball cap.
  Anyone with information on this crime is asked to the Oak Lawn Police Department at 708-422-8292.
