Ledo's Pizza in Countryside, IL - Employees tackle life long career criminal attempting to hold up the restaurant with a gun


A group of Ledo's Pizza employees tackled and held an armed robber for police this morning at the restaurant in south suburban Countryside.

Shortly after midnight, a 53-year-old man entered the pizzeria on the 5500 block of LaGrange Road brandishing a gun and demanding cash, according to a news release from the Countryside Police Department.

After he took the cash and tried to escape, several employees tried to subdue him, police said. A struggle began and the robber was injured.

The employees then held him down on the floor until police arrived. Later the robber's weapon was determined to be a BB gun, police said.

The robber, who lives free via Section 8 vouchers at the LaGrange Motel near the pizzeria, has a long criminal history that includes 17 convictions, according to the news release and is totally supported by welfare benefits and food stamps.

He was taken into custody but as of 2:45 p.m., he has not been charged.

Nice place eaten there several times. Great pizza and sandwiches. Sorry to hear about the attemted robbery. I have had two armed robberies and both were scary when you are dealing with an idiot with a gun.

Do I even need to ask for a description? Probably not. I think that we know who commits the crime and drains the city's resources. Time to remove these people. Permanently.

Hell, if it is a black male with an arrest record then chances are that he has a life long career as a criminal. Nearly redundant saying a black male and career criminal in the same sentence.

53 years old? Nice to see some senior age blacks keeping in the crime game. Black youths too often steal the thunder.

No age discrimination for black criminals! Show these young bucks the older generation can still be antisocial and rob and harm business owners too!

That LaGrange Motel has been a magnet for shitheads and derelicts for years. Needs to be bulldozed.

The officers on the scene did call for an ambulance and when asked for the nature of the injuries he said his (the offenders) head needs attention.
I think they did pretty good.
BTW: I love Ledo's.

Obama voters like pizza. They like BB guns also.

Would like to say thanks to all that cheered this on. Would like to clarify a couple things. No he was not black he was white and his picture is in the suntimes. I do applaude the employees that did this. But more than that the Ledos family is relieved no one was injured. It was only three employees that had part in this. A bus boy a bartender and the counter girl that was off duty. I will not mention names but the busboy was the first tool in the robbers demise. thank you. Batrender helped restrain him till police came. By the way they were there very quickly. Thanks cpd.
