Cops Issue Another Burglary Alert For Lakeview

Area North detectives yesterday issued another alert to warn Lakeview residents of home burglaries. The alert focuses on six incidents, although many more break-ins have been reported.

The six listed break-ins occurred:

  • January 29 in the 1300 block of W. Eddy around 6:45PM
  • February 2 in the 1300 block of W. Eddy between 6AM and 6PM
  • February 5 in the 3200 block of N. Clifton between 6PM and 9PM
  • February 5 in the 3300 block of N. Halsted between 10PM and 7AM 
  • February 7 in the 1100 block of W. Addison between 2AM and 3AM
  • February 15 in the 1200 block of W. Melrose between 5:30AM and 10:30PM

While police have made several burglary arrests in recent weeks, break-ins continue to plague the area. Lakeview burglaries were up 80% in January compared to the same month last year.

In the 44th ward, which includes most of Wrigleyville and Boystown, burglaries were up over 100% last month.

Here's a list of other recent burglaries that have been confirmed by the Chicago Police Department:

  1. CWB:

    Is a "residence" defined as a single-family home?

    My neighbors are convinced that these robberies are only occurring with rental units (apartments) and are not happening with condos or newer single-family homes.

    Your list above suggests that offenders don't seem to patterning any particular type of dwelling.

    Can you please shed any light on this?

    1. Locations are subject to interpretation. A residence could be an apartment or a single family home or a condo.
