CORNELIA: Foot Chase Ends With Arrest Of Suspected Burglars

Two suspected burglars are in custody after a foot chase through Boystown this morning.

A 911 call just before 11AM reported two suspicious men entering the rear of a residence in the 900 block of Cornelia. Arriving officers stopped the men in the alley near Cornelia and Halsted, but one of the suspects took off running.

After a foot pursuit through the alleys, police arrested the runner in the 3500 block of Reta.

Earlier this morning, two residents reported their homes burglarized in the 800 block of Cornelia. It is not clear if the two men taken into custody today are responsible for those crimes.

Police and a witness describe today's offenders as white men wearing hoodies. At least one had tattoos on his face.

The investigation continues.

  5. Good job and about time. The burglaries in the area are up at a massive rate while the robberies that you all seem to post more about are actually down a considerable amount. Again, you had a great burglary team that should have never been dissolved and now have a former tact team, with little knowledge on burglaries handling your problem.

    1. March and April robberies are higher than March and April of last year. Down for the year.

    2. Quit crying about your do nothing burglary team if you did anything they would have kept you all. Move on and just do your job now on a beat car wearing the uniform. Everyone here is so sick of your crying about it.

  6. Hey anyone here remember our old Friend Ryan Brandis?

    Check out the state inmate site.

    http://www2.illinois.gov/idoc/Offender/Pages/InmateSearch.aspx

    Ryan is due to be paroled on May 1st. That's May 1st 2014.

    In other words next Thursday. Lock your bikes people!

    He did the boot camp thing which is the reason he will be out early. Six months on a three year sentence.

    I suggest if anyone spots him around the Lakeview/Uptown neighborhoods that you greet him and let him know you know he's back. Perhaps someone can suggest some appropriate greetings. Perhaps an appropriate line from a movie.

    2. Funny you posted this because I saw a redheaded dude walking on Waveland yesterday and thought it was him. I must've been wrong because he's not quite out yet.

  7. FYI... They caught one person and charged him with a misdemenor. So he sat in the station and was released after a few hours. Now back on the street breaking into homes. The other ones got away.

  8. Reckless conduct sure beats burglary. We'll be seeing him again soon.

  9. Can somebody repost a photo of the red haired dude? He used to hang out around Waveland/Broadway. Excellent job CPD, and excellent job with this crime blog.

    2. Dang, he's cocky. His Facebook page contains a photo of a row of bikes ready for him to steal:

  10. Awesome. They caught them and let them go. Fantastic. I guess that must be the motto of our CPD - catch and release. Heaven help us this coming summer.

    On a tangential note, where do our illustrious judicial employees live? Because apparently this stupid "do the crime, get no time" and "catch and release" bs isn't affecting them in their neighborhoods. Maybe if this kind of bs actually affected them, they'd act differently.

    1. Sarah you base your anger at the police based on what experience with the law??? Do you have police experience??? Are you an attorney??? See it's real easy to Blame the police but did you ever think that maybe, just maybe, a misdemeanor charge was the only thing available? Perhaps they had not burgled yet... You can't charge a person with a crime if they didn't do it yet....
