He’s back!

We told you about Amarri Bowens back in June when the 22-year-old one-man crime spree was arrested for the 77th time after stealing a $30 box of Starburst from the Addison Red Line Station.

Bowens, who is often seen selling candy on the streets of our neighborhood, was charged with felony theft in the Starbucks case because his lengthy criminal record includes a burglary conviction.

Of the 77 arrests, Bowens has been convicted 16 times for everything from the aforementioned burglary to trespassing and theft.

At any rate, Bowens, whose address of record is a Department of Corrections facility in the 100 block of N. Campbell, is back in our neighborhood. He was seen wandering the 3300 block of N. Halsted just after 4 o’clock this morning.

Does anybody care to set the over/under on when he will achieve his 78th arrest?
