Chicago Duo Nabbed for $1,400 Nordstrom Rack Heist: Officer Allegedly Bitten


Share post:

OAK BROOK, IL – Two Chicago Women have been charged following an incident at the Shops at Oak Brook Nordstrom Rack.

Destiny Jackson, 25, and Alexis Glenn, 30, both hailing from Chicago, found themselves in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. The daring duo stand accused of allegedly snatching merchandise worth over $1,400 before attempting to flee on foot, leading to a dramatic arrest that reportedly saw an officer bitten during the struggle.

According to reports it happened September 6, 2023, at around 1:45 p.m., when an Oak Brook police officer noticed a suspicious vehicle in the Nordstrom Rack parking lot. The vehicle, with an out-of-state temporary license plate, was oddly backed into a parking spot, running, and unoccupied. Moments later, Jackson and Glenn emerged from the store, each reportedly carrying shopping bags laden with fragrances they hadn’t paid for.

When confronted by vigilant officers, the suspects ditched the loot and tried to make a run for it. Jackson was tackled by an officer, leading to a shocking twist as she allegedly bit the officer during the scuffle. Glenn was apprehended roughly two-hundred yards away following a brief foot pursuit.

DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin expressed his shock at the audacity of the crime, saying, “The allegations that these two women drove to the Nordstrom Rack store and left their car running in the parking lot while they helped themselves to more than $1,400 worth of merchandise and simply walked out without paying, are shocking.” Berlin praised the swift response of the Oak Brook Police Department, emphasizing that such crimes wouldn’t go unpunished in DuPage County.

Oak Brook Chief of Police Brian Strockis highlighted the effectiveness of their proactive policing strategies, which aim to deter crime and uphold the law. He commended the officer who remained resilient despite being bitten and emphasized their commitment to keeping retail establishments safe.

Both defendants faced bond hearings where Judge Brian Telander set bond at $20,000 with 10% applicable for Jackson and $10,000 with 10% for Glenn. Their next court appearance is scheduled for October 5, 2023, for arraignment in front of Judge Telander.
