Naperville, IL – A Chicago man has been handed a 20-year prison sentence for his involvement in the 2021 robbery at Jewel Osco in Naperville. The sentencing was delivered by DuPage County Judge Mia McPherson, concluding a legal battle that ensued after the incident.

DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin announced the sentencing today, revealing that Frederick Holmon, a 33-year-old from Chicago, was found guilty of multiple felony charges. The robbery took place in July 2021, when Holmon, armed with a 9mm semi-automatic rifle, attempted to rob a beverage supply delivery driver at the Jewel Osco grocery store located on 1759 West Ogden Avenue.

During the robbery attempt, the victim, a beverage supply deliver, refused to comply with Holmon’s demands and quickly alerted a Jewel employee, shouting about the presence of a firearm. Holmon fled the scene in a Chevy Suburban parked nearby. Naperville police officers were able to locate and apprehend Holmon a short while later, recovering the rifle, an extended magazine, and a loaded revolver from his vehicle.

State’s Attorney Robert Berlin expressed his gratitude that the victim remained unharmed, emphasizing the audacity of the morning robbery attempt. He praised the swift action taken by law enforcement, leading to Holmon’s arrest and subsequent conviction.

The case against Holmon was built on multiple charges, including two counts of Armed Violence (Class X Felony), one count of Attempt Armed Robbery with a Firearm (Class 1 Felony), two counts of Unlawful Possession of Weapon by a Felon (Class 3 Felony), one count of Unlawful Possession of Ammunition by a Felon (Class 3 Felony), and one count of Aggravated Unlawful Use of a Weapon (Class 2 Felony). Holmon has been held in custody at the DuPage County Jail since his arrest in July 2021, following his appearance in Bond Court.

Judge Mia McPherson’s decision to impose a 20-year sentence sends a strong message to those who contemplate committing violent crimes within DuPage County. The State’s Attorney’s Office commended Assistant State’s Attorneys Amanda Meindl and Kelsey Kerr for their outstanding work, which contributed to securing Holmon’s conviction and ensuring an appropriate sentence.
