Chicago Police Warn Of Burglaries In Lincoln Park, Old Town

Recently, the Chicago Police Department has been issuing a number of “community alerts” for North Side neighborhoods.

First, it was River North and the West Loop for strong-arm robberies.

Next, it was Lake View- also for strong-arm robberies.

Now, it’s iconic Lincoln Park and Old Town, as homes and businesses in these neighborhoods have been burglarized. Sarah Jindra reported on the WGN 9 Chicago website yesterday:

According to authorities, homes and businesses in Old Town and Lincoln park have experienced an increase in burglaries this month. Burglars pried open front doors and removed money from cash registers.

The most recent incidents happened between October 15th and 18th in the 400 block of West North Avenue, and in the 200 block of West Evergreen Avenue.

Two local homes were also burglarized.

Jindra noted all the burglaries took place in the early evening or overnight.

On a side note, when looking for the community alert on the Chicago Police Department website, nothing was posted on the 18th District’s “Crime Alerts” page. Someone over at the CPD should probably check into that.
