YOU'RE GETTING NOTHING FOR CHRISTMAS: Thieves Swipe 14 Packages From Lincoln Park Apartment Building

Are those packages yours, lady?
Fresh reports from the holiday package theft department:

• A witness reported seeing package thieves pull and steal "fourteen packages" from a building in the 2600 block of Hampden Court at 10PM Thursday. The offenders were last seen driving away in an older gray 4-door Oldsmobile that was stuffed with parcels. (Case HX547514)

• Wednesday afternoon, a FedEx driver in Lincoln Park noticed two guys were following his delivery truck and picking up the packages that he had been leaving. He called 911 and police arrested two offenders in the 2500 block of Seminary almost immediately.

Phone Jackers

• Several witnesses chased after the man who snatched a woman's iPhone near the Marshalls store at Clark and Halsted around 4:15PM Thursday. After running west through the north alley of Fletcher, the thief was last seen shooting onto Belmont via the Ann Sather restaurant driveway. Offender description: Male, black, in his 20's, "really tall," thin, wearing a black jacket, gray hoodie with the hood pulled up, jeans, and brown boots.

• Another phone thief was not so lucky. A group of friends detained the man who tried to steal their buddy's phone near Clark and Waveland Friday night. Police arrived and made the arrest.

Ridiculous 

The man who stole a woman's phone last Friday night got in touch with her the following morning with a proposition: He's willing to make some financial "arrangements" in exchange for the return of her phone. The woman agreed to meet him at the Dunkin' Donuts on the corner of Halsted and Diversey at 11:30AM.

She then called 911 and asked for the police to help her. She went to Dunkin' Donuts. So did the thief. And the cops. Once she got her phone back, she said "thanks" and told officers that she did not want to press charges.

No report. No arrest.

Boystown Burglar Steals Keys (And Car)

A Boystown resident encountered an unfortunate situation upon returning home to the 700 block of Buckingham last Saturday morning. While he was away, his house was burglarized. The thief also took the victim's car keys. And his car—a Fiat 500 with Florida Seminole license plate frames. Police estimate that the break-in took place around 1:30AM. (Case numbers HX540493 and HX540494)

  1. Why would you call 911 for police to help you, then NOT file a report or have him arrested? Idiot.

    1. She is just as much a part of the problem as the thief.

    2. She probably had to get to he anti-police demonstartion at Clark and Belmont. True idiots. Demostrate the day after the two NYPD cops are murdered.

      Don't demostrate against all the innocent people killed by the bangers. Don't demonstrate against all the beat downs and robberies.

  4. The woman who met the man who robbed her at the DD is truly an idiot...what does she think this guy is going to do? Go home and repent, never to do this again in the spirit of Christmas?? No dummy, he's going to go out and do the same type of crap to some other victim, thanks to you not pressing charges. Nice thought process, moron.

  5. You should publish that woman's name here so anyone who knows her Cantwell her what a selfish idiot she is or thank her for her apathy and ignorance whe they become the next victim of her robber. She didn't deserve to be robbed but she also didn't deserve to get her phone back. Next time someone calls the police for help like this, the police should only agree to help if the person agrees to press charges.

  6. I think the woman who had the cops help get her phone back should get a bill for their services. She was not asking for help from the police, but help from an armed force ala mercenaries and she should have to pay for that.

  7. A close second behind actual criminals in the area is victims who won't file reports. Thanks for contributing to crime being down, people who have "better things to do."

  8. These people who don't file reports are complete and utter morons who clearly don't understand the repercussions of crime going unreported.

    If one of these thugs so far as laid a finger on me or touched any of my belongings I would file a report without a doubt and show up to court.

  9. The liberal clowns "leading" our cities and nation need to get back to real policing activity - the same approach that Rudy took in NYC to clean the place up. Letting all of these thugs run the streets and attempting to "be nice" to them and "understand" them have gotten us only more terror. All of these thugs need to be locked up where they can enjoy each other's company as a plague on society.

    1. Rudy G. got rid of the best police chief in the nation, Bill Bratton and replaced him with the hack Bernard Kerik, who I think was his driver? Of course Kerik helped Rudy G. get together with his mistress, this is Rudy's idea of qualifications for police chief. Kerik later convicted of some kind of fraud. This mayor brought Bratton back from L.A. and put him in charge of NYPD where he is doing an excellent job. Rudy has to get himself in the news because he is promoting himself as a security consultant.

  10. A FedEx deliver threw a box on my deck on Saturday. I heard the thunk. No doorbell, no knock, nothing. I opened the door and called out to him (nicely) and after he realized I was talking to him he removed his earbuds. I (nicely) suggested that if a package has to be left on the deck, at least move it or conceal it behind something on the deck so it won't be visible to the street. (It was in direct line of sight from the street.) What did he do? He looked at me for a second, put his earbuds back in, and GRABBED HIS CROTCH AT ME and walked away. (For those in the area of Halsted and Roscoe, here's his description: black male, about 28-30, dreadlocks, walks with a slouch). Needless to say I called FedEx about it right then.

  11. It's unbelievable the level of ignorance exhibited by people like the woman who didn't press charges after the police had the thief red-handed. Because of her selfishness/cowardice this robber is back on the street to victimize someone else with no fear of any consequences. Pathetic excuses for human beings - both of them.

  12. Re: the Riz - Be aware that just because you want to file a police report, the police may not take a report. I had extensive property damage (vandalism) to my mature landscape shrubs that will cost a lot of money to replace. Two calls to 311 and one to the district met with all three declining to take a report. My request was met with not only rudeness, but vicious rudeness and condescension. So there you are - no report - no property crime statistic.

    1. Agreed. I was in a situation where they tried their best to get my friend to abstain from filing a report in a rude, dismissive and condescending manner. The report was written after demanding it. How hard is it to write 2 damn paragraphs?

    2. My apologies for my jump to conclusions without considering those types of situations. I was just drawing on my own experience. I regret my generalization, but to be fair, the article does she she stated she did not want to press charges, making it sound like it was her choice. Of course, the police would probably make it look that way on paper if they didn't feel like taking a full complaint.

    3. That would have been easy paper for any cop to write. I doubt they talked her out of it. And there is no "paper" if she didn't sign a complaint.

  13. Thanks to Compstat, any complaints filed results in higher crime stats, makes the Commander look bad.
