A 27-year-old man was charged with robbing a dry cleaners with a toy gun earlier this month in west suburban Woodbridge.
Ryan James Dougherty, of Naperville, was charged with a single count of aggravated robbery, according to Woodbridge police.
About 6 p.m. Jan. 3, officers saw Dougherty robbing Choice Cleaners at 3540 Seven Bridges Drive, police said. During the robbery, Woodbridge gave a clerk a note demanding money while brandishing a “replica handgun.”
For security reasons, the officers initially let Dougherty leave the dry cleaners and drive off, police said. He was later taken into custody during a traffic stop.
Dougherty is being held at DuPage County Jail on $6,000 bond, according to the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office. His next court date was set for Jan. 29.
