UNWELCOME VISITORS (UPDATED): Four More Homes Burglarized Sunday

At least three four more area residents returned home Sunday to find their homes burglarized.
• One resident discovered that prowlers forced their way into two units in a home on Seminary just north of Wrigley Field. 
• Another forcible entry burglary was confirmed Sunday morning when a resident reported that their first-floor unit in the 3300 block of Kenmore had been targeted.
• A tenant found "thousands of dollars" worth of property missing when he returned to his apartment in the 800 block of Dakin Sunday night. Unlike the others, this burglar did not use force to get inside, which indicates that a door or window was left unlocked or the thief has a key.
Other forcible burglaries in the immediate area that CWB has learned of this week include:
• A four-plus-one apartment in the 500 block of Addison.
• An attempted burglary in the 3700 block of Kenmore.
• A gray stone in the 2900 block of N. Halsted was accessed by kicking in the front door.
• A gray stone in the 3800 block of N. Wilton.
• Two units of a home in the 3500 block of Wilton as well as the attempted break-in of a home across the street.


  1. CWB, thanks for the info on these recent burglaries. I'll keep my eye out for suspicious visitors.

  2. CWB, did you see the TV news report about landlords that won't fix the broken locks, etc.? In the same week one of Lakeviews notorious apartment building "management" companies advised us our missing bikes may be at the local police station and to make sure the courtyard gate was always locked, the "building engineer" (aka janitor) advised us to just leave the gate open because the keypad to open it hadn't worked for months. To boot, the main door lock wouldn't work either so we couldn't get mail delivered and were advised to just leave that one propped open too. If the city would crack down on these places we wouldn't need speed cameras.

    1. That's unbelievable. Doors were designed to close and lock for a reason.

    2. In a case like that, I would simply stop paying my rent until the landlord fixed the lock.

    3. I did, then moved.

  3. This story can't be true Tunney and Rahm tells us crime is down.

  4. No burglary team = higher burglaries
