ROSCOE: Neighbor Tips Cops To Alleged Burglar

Alibegg (Cook County Sheriff's Office)
For the second time in under a week, a quick 911 call by an observant resident has led to police catching an alleged burglar in our neighborhood.

Officers responded to the 800 block of Roscoe at 5:45PM Monday after a 911 caller reported seeing a man taking things from a nearby garage. After looking at a photograph of the suspect in action, cops scoured the area and made an arrest in the 800 block of Buckingham. CPD case HX325695.

Rhygien Alibegg, 57, is charged with burglary. Bail is set at $30,000.

On June 24, officers were able to catch up with three potential burglars on historic Alta Vista Avenue after an observant neighbor called 911. One 18-year-old and two juveniles were arrested. The adult faces misdemeanor charges of trespassing and criminal damage.

    1. Seems like it was a sting operation of some sort. The at least one of the undercover cars was area gang enforcement. In the end, the guy was caught and the incident was said to be a theft matter.

  2. I hope I'm wrong, but after showing the picture to two others....we think he's been hanging around the church at Broadway and Buckingham....for years.

  3. "The adult faces misdemeanor charges of trespassing and criminal damage.". "Trespassing + criminal damage" or "trespassing + theft" is BURGLARY or Attempt Burglary. A felony. The comments are clear and accurate on the original story from June 24th. Attempt burglary, burglary: felonies. Criminal damage, trespassing etc: misdemeanors. Look to the Cook County prosecution/felony review charging standards as to why cops are so frustrated to the point of inaction, and why that 18 year old burglar got out in mere hours.

    1. It does make you wonder what you'd actually have to do to get a felony charge in Cook County. The fact that charges are being "reduced" by prosecutors has to be demoralizing for police but I don't think the public realizes that this goes on.

    2. At the end of the day we all just want to go home.

  4. Another bad experience with police last night. They don't want to do there jobs, like they are mad you woke them up or something. Call for a Sgt, he blows it off. No wonder people hate the police, maybe it is just a few bad apples that shouldn't have the badge.
