UNWELCOME VISITORS: Area Burglars Are Having A Field Day

Clark (Cook Co Sheriff's Dept)
An 18-year-old Calumet City man faces charges of burglary, unlawful use of a weapon, and possession of burglary tools after police found him inside an apartment building in the 1300 block of Waveland.

Officers went to the location at 2:30PM on March 12 after a motorist reported seeing a man use a pry bar to force his way through the main door.

On-scene, cops say they saw Anthony Clark emerge from a stairwell dressed in a black winter hat and winter gloves. It was 57-degrees that afternoon.

“Man, I was just visiting a friend in this building,” Clark allegedly told officers, “but I don’t remember his name.”

Police searched Clark and allegedly found a stun gun in his pocket and a pry bar in his “immediate area.” Bail is set at $50,000.

  1. Sigh ..... it's going to be a long-ass crime filled summer in the neighborhood. Take a long look at Clark's soulless beady thieving little eyes. Thanks, Tunney! Thanks, Rahm!

    1. You should thank the voters, or the lazy people who stay home.

  2. Hopefully, this guy doesn't get Judge Calabrese. He will just make him destroy his "burglary tools" and send him on his way home.

    2. I wonder how many times Clark was escorted like a precious little god along a safe route.

    3. I was thinking exactly the same thing, about the idiot judge ordering to "destroy his burglary tools." Unreal. Do all these judges live behind gated walls & have body guards 24/7? If not, how come then condone this type of behavior? Basically, they are allowing crime to continue every time they let these assclowns off with a slap on the wrist.....if that!

      The judicial system in this city is ridiculous. If Chuy wants to really rile people up, he should point this out and promise to change this. These idiot judges let the criminals walk so often, what's the point of even arresting them?? A revolving door system, no doubt. I'm sick of it.''

      These pathetic judges need to be held accountable for every crime these fuckers commit - after they are let out on probation/good behavior/reduced sentences, etc....

    1. Although where the money will come from is anyone's guess.

    2. I am for more cops but neither Rahm nor Chuy have a plan to fix the pension crisis or pay for more cops. Whoever leaves Chicago last, don't forget to turn off the lights but it's probably worthless to lock the door!

    3. "don't forget to turn off the lights"

      Don't worry ComEd will cut the power due to lack of payment long before then.

    4. Hey, that's funny. Rahm promised the same thing before he was elected...

      it's like politicians lie to get elected or something... weird...

  5. North side residents have had police resources stolen from them and given to the ghetto areas. Call you alderman and demand more police patrolman because you pay taxes !!

  6. Rahmy promised to spread the crime. It's one campaign promise a politician kept.
