The owner of Ceres’ Table, 3124 N. Broadway, became the latest victim at 4:40 this morning when a single burglar busted through the restaurant’s back door and knocked the alarm system off of the wall.
Police were dispatched to the restaurant when the alarm sounded but, rather than discovering the latest in a series of burglaries that has been the subject of two police alerts, the officers issued Ceres’ Table a ticket for a “false alarm.”
Early indications are that nothing was taken from the restaurant.
And on Sunday morning, Si-Pie Pizzeria, 3477 Broadway, reported that it had been burglarized, too.
Local alderman Tom Tunney spoke with ABC7 Chicago about the burglaries on Monday:
"I've been in communication with police department. They do not feel there is a rash or something particularly different about the past 10 days but we're on top of it.”That’s weird. Because we aren’t used to seeing the police department issuing two alerts in the course of days for something that’s not different. But rest assured, businesses, the he is on top it!
