EDGED OUT: Witness Sees Burglary Team In Action

A resident in nearby Lake View caught a glimpse of a burglary team in action this afternoon. As CWB has been reporting, more than a dozen neighborhood residences have been broken into over the past ten days, mostly in Wrigleyville.

Around 2:45 this afternoon, a witness saw a black, male offender break into a home in the 1400 block of Cornelia. Moments later, the burglar fled with a partner in a black Ford Edge (see image). Case #HX140202.

Last week, a witness saw a man break the front door of a home in the 3700 block of Kenmore at 2:40PM. That burglar was described as a white male with brown hair who was wearing a light colored jacket and blue jeans.

The 19th police district's anti-burglary team was disbanded several weeks ago.

  1. "Will DeMille says the Task Force portion of the meeting will be "more of a readout of discussions to date and planned next steps"

    Translation: they haven't done anything.

    2. LVCC is nothing more than a big joke, but their inaction on major issues isn't funny. Jill Peters and Jim Sheridan are the only individuals on the board worth a damn. The others are just shills for Tunney, especially Marie Poppy. Just useless. Get involved, go to a meeting and see for yourself. You better get involved because this Cubs Plaza thing is going to be a nightmare for anyone living close to Wrigley.

  2. There are seemingly a million cameras in our fair city - one would hope that there's a picture of a license plate somewhere.

    1. If they can squeeze a $100 ticket out of the deal, they'll find a pic of the plate whether he ran a yellow light or not.

  3. It's amazing to me that the commander eliminated the burglary team when burglaries are an epidemic. But since he did do this why doesn't he direct the tact teams to work these types of crimes? Isn't that what they do? What hours do they work?

  4. Saw a black Edge without a front license plate heading north on Racine this morning, near Wellington, around 730am.
