Among recent victims are two churches, a nail salon, and far too many homeowners.
• The Chicagoland Community Church, 836 W. Aldine, discovered that their house of worship had been forcibly entered and burgled Monday evening.
• A passer-by Sunday found a brick tossed through a window and the front door kicked in at The J Nail Club, 1464 W. Fullerton, near the DePaul campus.
• Residential break-ins were reported Sunday and Monday in the 600 block of W. Waveland; the 3500 block of N. Sheffield; and the 2700 block of N. Pine Grove.
