Naperville Police are looking for four offenders who robbed a convenience store on the 1600 block of Route 59 at gunpoint on Saturday evening. The offenders stole food and money from the store before leaving the scene. All four offenders are described as male, black, in their early 20’s, approximately 6 feet tall with a thin build. Anyone with information is asked to call the Police Department at 630-420-6666 and ask for the investigations division.
A petition has surfaced online that hopes to stop the demolition of the old Nichols Library- sighting its history and importance to the city. Developer Dwight Avram has submitted a proposal to convert the building into a four-story mixed-use building with retail, offices and condominiums. He’ll hold a public hearing on Tuesday evening at the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce for residents to review concepts of the development.
