Steger man admits guilt in robbery spree

The Herald News

JOLIET -- A robber who held up one gas station twice in the same day last year pleaded guilty Wednesday.

Christopher J. Guy, 22, of Steger, actually committed three robberies in the same 24-hour period.

On July 26, 2008, he went first to the Speedway gas station, 1120 Main St., Crete. Armed with a gun, Guy demanded money, Will County Assistant State's Attorney Chris Messina said Wednesday. About two hours later, he returned to the station and robbed it again, Messina said.

I thought that girl that cut off the girl's hair and burned her was supposed to be on house arrest. She was gauking and texting like crazy at the train accident last night. I couldn't believe she was out when I was filling my tank at Shell. No shame or remorse. No wonder the victim's mom said her daughter is the real prisoner here. I am so disgusted at the parents!

Oak Forest Man arrested in Steger

Why did they meet him in Steger and not Crete?

I guess if there's going to be trouble, you don't want it in your town.

I think the village board should send a letter to the Crete mayor and ask that question.

The wise papaadoc your quote confused me at first but it does have merit.

First, who cares what town they got this scumbag in, at least hes arrested.

Second, im sure officer Howey (CPD) had a reason for setting it up in Steger. A few come to mind.

Thrid, maybe Steger was notified of the impending arrest by Crete.

IMHO

If this story is true and have no reason to think otherwise isnt it a little suspious(sp). I mean a 24 yro man going around the gates and into a MOVING train. He may of had disabilites or impairments but yesterday a train, tomorrow a car.
Im glad this man survived this close call but hope he gets ALL the help he needs.

Don't know how many of you get the Steger News, but did anyone besides me notice there was NO coverage of the village manager being eliminated at the last meeting? I would think that was a pretty big story, but not a word. This forum seems to be the only place that tells us what is going on in Steger.
I don't think I will be renewing when the time comes.
So MANY things that make you go "HHMMM !"

In general, The Steger News is completely ridiculous and irrelevant.
Oh, yeah, that's right since it didn't involve you it is ridiculous and irrelevent. All news has meaning to someone. Don't be soooo insensitive. Too bad many of your former problems have come to the suburbs, like Steger!!!

First when setting up computer stings to catch these idiots that think they are meeting a little girl or boy, they would get suspicious if they wanted to meet in the town they live in.(parents or neighbors might see) Neutral ground is always better and ther bay guy is less nervous. And to answer all of the people about why all the information was not reported at 10 pm. Police do not release information on an accident until the investigation is closed and the victims or victims families are notified. And papadoc I also here the 4 armed robbers were arrested and charged.
