LABOR PARTY: Holiday Weekend Draws Delinquents

12:13PM
Two men stole a whopping 20 bottles of Familia Camarena tequila worth a total of $400 from the 7-Eleven store, 3700 N. Broadway. The suspects are described as
1) male, black, 30s, wearing a white t-shirt with red lettering on the chest, white shorts, and a black baseball cap.
2) male, black, salt and pepper hair, 45 years old, white shirt, black jeans, carrying a black backpack.
2:06PM
A resident of the 1700 block of West Roscoe complained that their neighbors had been blasting music since Friday. The 911 call taker also heard the caller report that the partiers tied four ham hocks to a tree and "it doesn't look safe." Hammocks, maybe? Darned cell phone connections.

4:23PM
Witnesses reported that cases of beer were being stolen from the Theater on the Lake concession stand at Fullerton and Lake Shore Drive. The two male white offenders were followed northbound on the lakefront trail. Police took one into custody, but the second thief slipped away around Belmont. The still at-large offender is described as a male, white, 6-feet tall, thin, shirtless, blonde hair, plaid shorts, carrying a blue bank bag that contained $1000 cash. Case #HW432821.
