Dean McKenna, 25, of 35 W. 66th St. in Westmont, is charged with armed robbery after police said he entered the Aldi grocery store near Route 53 and Maple Avenue in Lisle at 2:35 p.m. on Jan. 20, approached a store clerk and after asking for change, pointed a pellet gun into the clerk's side as she opened the cash register, according to the news release. 

He is accused of taking $1,046 from the drawer and then fleeing the scene in his vehicle, according to the news release.
