Attempted robbery at W Augusta Blvd & N Hermitage Ave 10:58PM Nov 18

I was listening to the Chicago police scanner tonight and heard a dispatch for a robbery in progress at W Augusta and N Hermitage at 10:58PM. At 11:22 PM, another dispatch reported that this was an attempted robbery and that the offenders were 3 black teens, one approximately 5.8', navy hoody, grey pants last seen walking South Bound Augusta. Take care out there.

  • Sorry, I was trying to quickly write down the scanner report. Augusta is an East/West boulevard so the offenders must have been going south on a side street off of Augusta.

  • Great job, CPD! Now, will the judge utter the famous words that release violent offenders immediately back onto the street:

    NO PROBABLE CAUSE

    Any judge that lets violent and armed criminals back onto the street needs to be voted out of office, and/or run out of town tarred and feathered.

    If these offenders were sentenced and jailed, we would have a safer city.
