PITA POCKETER: Restaurant Crew Busts Boystown Car Burglar

Davis (Cook Co. Sheriff's Dept)
Two cooks at Eat A Pita saw an interesting sight when they looked up at the restaurant’s surveillance camera feed last week: A guy was outside, breaking into their boss’ car.

All three men went out to the rear parking lot and confronted the man, who they say took coins and cash out of the vehicle’s center console.

Antonio Davis of the 1400 block of S. Canal is charged with theft. Bond has been set at $5,000.

In a remarkable coincidence, Davis was charged with theft last autumn after allegedly being caught going through a vehicle’s glove compartment near Wrigley Field. That victim declined to pursue felony charges and the case was dropped after the victim failed to show up in court.

Davis is currently on parole for a burglary conviction that earned him a 10-year sentence in 2009. That burglary took place in the 800 block of Fletcher, according to police records. Davis’ previous convictions include a 9-year sentence for carjacking in 1997, six years for burglary in 2002, and 9 years for burglary in 2004.

  1. Davis is currently on parole for a burglary conviction that earned him a 10-year sentence in 2009. That burglary took place in the 800 block of Fletcher, according to police records. Davis’ previous convictions include a 9-year sentence for carjacking in 1997, six years for burglary in 2002, and 9 years for burglary in 2004.

    Math isn't my forte, but even I can figure out that if he served a full sentence on the 2009 charge his ass should still be in prison. And if he went to the big house for six years in 2002, how the hell did he get convicted two years later for yet another burglary? That sentence was nine years but he was out doing his thing again five years later.

    True in sentencing, people! Do the crime, serve the damn time.

  3. Although these crimes are a menace to society. The facts are these are not "violent crimes". And that is what the Judges look at upon sentences. Everyone likes to criticize the Cook County Judges but in reality they are doing the best they can. Look at the IDOC inmate population and there is only so much room for offenders.

    2. Put them to work. Then put them in tents for their entire sentence.. What ya wanna bet they won't be doing the same crap again so soon? There is absolutely no deterrent to not continue in their life of crime. It is far too rewarding. We are the idiots who continue to be played as fools.

    4. I'm totally willing to contribute some extra dollars if it were to be specifically spent towards jails.
      I like the other comments for tents and opening up shuttered prisons.
      But, sorry to state the obvious but the cost is more complicated with staffing, food, medical care, and the list goes on and on.
      Since we've already lost all the blue-collar jobs to China, can we ship our prisoners there for prison?
      I'm kinda serious. How about Mexico? Let's employ cheap Mexican labor and ship our prisoners there.

  4. The spineless, cowardly victim that didn't file a report on him should be sharing the same prison cell with the thug, they deserve each other.

  5. 1400 S. Canal is the Pacific Garden Mission.

    1. That was the first thing I thought. Dude lives at Pacific Garden. There are no other residences from Roosevelt to 18th Street. It's all industrial, the Metra rail shops, Jewel... and Pacific Garden Mission. A friend of mine lives near PGM's former address on State and he says the neighborhood improved exponentially when it moved.

    2. Don't forget the Dominick's right across from the mission. I stayed there one night two years ago and in between dinner and the pre-shower/bed sermon (the only requirement at PGM is that you listen to four sermons daily), a group of 2-3 men pooled their money, bought a magnum of vodka, and proceeded to drink it straight from the bottle out by the loading dock.

  7. 34 years worth of sentencing since 04. Crazy that he's out. Catch and release continues. Now, I guess according to the DA the coins in the car were lost or mislaid items....

  9. "Davis is currently on parole for a burglary conviction that earned him a 10-year sentence in 2009 . . . Davis’ previous convictions include a 9-year sentence for carjacking in 1997, six years for burglary in 2002, and 9 years for burglary in 2004."

    So, not only is a menace to civil society, but he's also a pretty terrible criminal.

  12. Clearly the victims of these crimes have as much respect for their community as do the criminals since they repeatedly refuse to press charges or show up in court. You could call them lazy, but that kind of laziness is bred by disrespect.
