International Visitors to Elmhurst Allegedly Stole Jewelry From Kohl's

The two alleged thieves explained they were visiting the country and wanted jewelry for gifts, police said.

Two foreign visitors to Elmhurst caught stealing jewelry from Kohl's explained that they were merely acquiring gifts for when they returned home, police said.

Qadeer Asm, 48, and Shamsuddin Rishad, 46, both were charged with retail theft in connection with the alleged Thursday evening jewel heist.

Kohl's security told the cops that while Asm and Rishad were in the 303 S. Route 83 store they "placed numerous jewelry items on their persons and attempted to leave the store without paying," police said. "They were stopped in the vestibule."

Rishad had $208.17 in merchandise and Asm was caught with $274.16 worth of stuff, police said.

The "couple" told the cops that they "are in the country visiting and wanted the jewelry as gifts," police said.

The police said Rishad and Asma are living at a Lombard condo on South Rebecca Road. They were released from custody after posting bond.

Released and probably posted a $100 bond---they're gone.

Obviously not from around here if they decided to pick Kohl's for a jewelry theft. Probably stole a gold-plated Britney Spears® pendant with a birthstone in the middle. And since the suggested retail prices were around $200, the sticker price at Kohl's was likely $19.99 ("You saved $180.00 today!")

Yeah you mean International Scum. What has happened to America? we have no exports, high crime, and we keep importing 3rd world trash from over 72 different countries, what are we going to live off of packing them and stacking them and charging them interest? this is a bad idea, we went from a Monoculture in the 1950's and 60's to a multicultural cesspool of filth and degeneracy. These people come here and steal from the store but they also steal the time and energy of the police dept. which we pay for, they use our streets, our water, eat our food, use our sewage systems which all causes money, fill our jails.. You people better wake up when it comes to Amnesty. America isn't a melting pot, like some would have you to believe in the liberal media, but its quickly turning into a **** pot, ready to boil over fast
