The Butternut Bread Thrift Store was robbed at gunpoint Monday evening.
Police said a black man about 18 years old robbed the store at the intersection of West Howett and South Shelley streets with a black handgun. No one was injured.
After taking an undisclosed amount of money, the man fled the store on foot and ran toward South Western Avenue.
Police said he was wearing a red and green hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans, was about 130 pounds and about 5 feet 5 inches tall.
A South Peoria woman pleaded guilty Monday to shooting at a man in January.
Cheryl Langford, 53, of 2015 W. Antoinette St. now faces either probation or up to 15 years in prison when sentenced on March 6. She remains free on bond pending that hearing.
As part of a deal with prosecutors, charges of attempted first-degree murder and aggravated battery with a firearm were dropped in return for Langford’s plea to aggravated discharge of a firearm.
Police were called to her home shortly before 5 a.m. on Jan. 4. They found Lewis R. Donley, 47, who also lives at the Antoinette Street home, shot and suffering from what police described as “life-threatening injuries.”
Assistant State’s Attorney Jodi Hoos said Langford and Donley had been married at some point and were arguing that day. The altercation turned violent, and Langford shot him six times with a .22-caliber revolver.
The prosecutor said cuts on Langford’s body, which she initially told police were caused by Donley, were actually self-inflicted.

Nigger Communist Martin Luther King, Jr. Freedom March January 19th, 2009 + Bill Cosby to Speak at KFC Luncheon
Read the whole truth about Nigger Communist MLK.
More general monkey shit from the Peoria Niggers.
When the Public Employees for Community Concerns hosted the first annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration Luncheon 17 years ago, it featured local speakers and served about 200 attendees. Alma Brown, the luncheon’s chair, reported, “When we first started coordinating the luncheon, we wanted to have something on that date to commemorate the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and have something that could bring the community together in fellowship, and maybe learn a little more about his life.” Attesting to the tremendous growth of this event, recent luncheons have hosted at least 2,000 people and featured nationally known speakers, and this year is no different.
On Monday, January 19th, the 17th annual luncheon at the Peoria Civic Center will feature keynote speaker Bill Cosby, King family friend. “When looking for speakers,” Brown said, “we try to find someone who had a connection with the family or someone who can share their insights of Dr. King and maybe how Dr. King touched their life, and I think Bill Cosby can speak to each one of those issues very well.”
Immediately following the luncheon, Cosby will also hold a parents’ forum for 150 local moms and dads. He will speak about his most recent book, Come on People: On the Path from Victims to Victors, and answer parents’ questions about his insights into parenthood and other related topics.
The luncheon will again be followed by the 23rd annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Freedom March, put on by the King Holiday Committee of Peoria. A CityLink-sponsored Freedom Trolley will provide transportation from the Civic Center to Bradley University’s Garrett Center, where the march will begin at 2pm. After walking through the streets of Peoria, the march will end at Mt. Zion Baptist Church, where a commemorative service and awards ceremony will take place.
For more information on the luncheon, or to purchase tickets, contact Alma Brown at 494-8554. Tickets are $40 each or $400 for a table of 10. a&s
A Pekin man walking in a South Peoria neighborhood Thursday evening was robbed of his coat and $5 in cash at gunpoint.
The 35-year-old victim was walking in the 2900 block of West Nevada Street at about 5:40 p.m. when two men reportedly approached him and asked him if he wanted to buy drugs.
He refused the drugs, and the men demanded he give them his coat, according to police reports. When he told them no, one reportedly pulled a gun and again demanded the victim’s coat and money.
He gave the men $5 in cash and his coat before they each punched him seven or eight times and discussed which one was going to kill him, he told police. The man eventually broke free and ran. He was later treated for minor injuries at Pekin Hospital.
The Niggers are even opening random fire on cops. Still the city will not acknowledge that we have a black gang problem terrorizing decent folks.
