Via: A man accused of robbing a South Loop convenience store of two $2 bills early this morning while brandishing a machine pistol and sporting a distinctive tattoo has been charged, police said. Austin Randall, 23, of the 9300 block of South Paxton Avenue in the Far South Side’s Pill Hill neighborhood, was charged with armed robbery, possession of cannabis and defacing a firearm, police said. The suspect was injured when he collided with an unmarked police car that was pursuing him, and finally was apprehended by other Chicago police officers at 12:22 a.m. in the 0-100 block of East 18th Street, less than a block from the 1st District station, police said. Investigators were able to link the gun to Randall, who has a tattoo of the bear from the Chicago Bears logo on one hand, after they found his cell phone, police said. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times, you don’t get a Bears tattoo on your hand, take a photo of that hand holding a pistol and get away with robbery. Just doesn’t happen. You have to be smarter than this, A. Randall. It’s not like this bro isn’t familiar to cops. You might remember his forgery arrest. Filed under: Cuff 'Em
