South Loop Mariano's Robbery Goes Bad

A bunch of people have sent us this story, so figured it was worth sharing (via NBC5):
A man crashed a newer model Jaguar after robbing a Mariano's Fresh Market store in Chicago's South Loop on Tuesday night, police said. A 20-year-old man now in custody posed as a nightshift crew worker and attempted to steal money from cash registers, police said.
Another employee of the store recognized the suspected robber from another robbery that occurred at a different Mariano’s store and began chasing after him.

The suspect 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 store employee. That employee who held the suspect down until officers arrived.
Nothing like a live rendition of "COPS" to go with your grocery shopping!
