Blotter: 7-Eleven employee flips off store owner for reporting theft

An employee at a 7-Eleven flipped the bird at the convenience store owner Tuesday after the owner reported the man for pocketing cash from in-store purchases, police said. 

Police gave the employee two citations — one for pocketing the cash and the other for using an offensive gesture in a public place — when they arrived on the scene at about noon, the police report said. The incident occurred at about 11:30 a.m. at the 7-Eleven in the 100 block of South Loop 288. 

The report did not specify how much money the man allegedly pocketed. No arrests were made.
