Westmont Aldi Robbed at Gunpoint on Monday

The suspect was wearing a ski mask and got away with $3,000 to $4,000 in cash.

A man robbed at gunpoint the Aldi location at 6415 S. Cass Ave. in Westmont on Monday night at around 9:00 p.m., making off with between $3,000 and $4,000 in cash.

According to Westmont police, the suspect is a black male in his 20s between 5’9” and 6” tall. He was wearing a ski mask and a puffy winter jacket, and brandished a handgun during the robbery.

Police said it is unknown if the weapon was real. “In my experience, they’re making some of these BB guns look so real these days that we can’t even tell the difference,” said Westmont Police Department Sergeant Stephen Thompson. “The people in the store definitely believed it was real.”

Witnesses did not see how the man left the scene, or in what direction.

Westmont police are still investigating the crime. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact police using Westmont’s crime hotline.

First of all, Jay Jay, if the Republican stronghold in DuPage County is "being destroyed," I say "good riddance!" That makes me happier than a witch in a broom factory. As for "contaminated cesspool sewage" spreading in our fair, lily-white DuPage County, maybe you had better call a plumber? I can give you some reputable names if you're interested.

What bothers me more than I can put into words are the trillions of dollars that we have wasted on a senseless war against a sovereign nation that had absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with 9/11 and which posed no threat to our shores--a bloody war that was based on evasions and lies--a war that the people of this nation bought from their lying leaders, hook, line and sinker. Oh, one more thing, however. Yes, there actually WERE weapons of mass destruction, but the reason nobody could find them was because the tooth fairy flew away with them to her teeny tiny castle in the clouds. ;)
