Sheriff’s office seeking help with robbery at gas station

MINOOKA – On March 13, at approximately 11:40 a.m., the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to the Citgo gas station located at 17845 Ridge Road, unincorporated Minooka for an armed robbery which had just occurred.

The clerk reported that a male subject entered the store armed with a handgun, and demanded cash from the cash register.

The subject was described to be African American, in his early 20s with a medium build. The subject was described as wearing a blue hoodie, black coat, blue jeans, and white rimmed sunglasses with a reflective type lens.

The subject departed the area in a blue Dodge Charger heading southbound on Ridge Road. None of the customers, or the clerk, sustained any injuries during this incident.

Kendall County Sheriff’s deputies are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the male suspect in this incident. Any tips or information can be directed to detectives@co.kendall.il.us or 630-553-5856. Callers who wish to remain anonymous can contact the Kendall County Crimestoppers at 630-553-5999.

The public is reminded that criminal defendants are presumed innocent until the government is able to prove its charges in court beyond a reasonable doubt.
