Burglaries Up 265% Here As Cops Issue Another Warning

Chicago police detectives this week issued their latest warning about burglaries in the 19th district after three victims reported their homes entered and their cars stolen.

The warning is the latest in a series from cops as the number of reported break-ins has soared.

Comparing January 1 to March 10 this year with the same period in 2015, burglaries...
...are up 78% in the 19th police district (144 this year vs 81 last year)
...are up 133% in Lakeview (98 vs 42 last year) 
...are up 265% in the 44th ward, represented by Ald. Tom Tunney  (73 vs. 20)
While the newest alert does not reveal that the victims' cars were stolen, there's a clue in the warning's "what you can do" section:
"Always ensure...keys and key fobs are kept secured and out of plain sight."
Of course, you knew that cars were taken because you're a dedicated CWB Chicago reader and you saw our report last week.

Among the latest break-ins:

• Burglars kicked their way into the Sydney Marovitz Golf Course clubhouse last Thursday and took a cash drawer, which was empty.

• Burglars forced their way into a home in the 1000 block of W. Wellington Tuesday and helped themselves to the homeowner's property.

These cases have also been confirmed by Chicago police:

"Forcible entry" means that the offenders forced their way in, typically by breaking through a door or window. "Unlawful Entry" means that no force was used--a window left unlocked, for example.

  1. I am, so pleased and ecstatic that the voters of Ward 44 re-elected this assclown to the position of alderthing. A 265% increase in burglaries is something I am sure he is proud of, and we all should join in that achievement as well, and celebrate, celebrate, celebrate! Yesss!! We gpot what we collectively elected, yes we did indeed. And I can sleep peacefully at night knowing in my heart that he is "looking into the matter" and is no doubt "working closely with" a plethora of agencies to root out this evil burglary problem from my neighborhood, for which I paid a staggering $19,318 to live and operate a business in!

    1. Shut up!! Shut up!!! Crime is down!

    2. Tunney has done a great job in finding employment for people who desperately need it. Being a criminal can be a lucrative career and you too can get all the training you need with a 6 month crash course sentence to prison. Enjoy the fun of being in gangs and possibly getting killed each day. Have great opportunities breaking into homes and mugging old ladies. With a 265% increase in crime and a police presence that gets lower by the month, you know you have job stability. Tom Tunney wants you to know, your career as a criminal is safe in the 44th ward.

      - Tunney, for crime, against residents.

  2. "Unlawful Entry"

    Does that mean the residents left their homes unlocked?

    1. From the bottom of the chart:

      "Forcible entry" means that the offenders forced their way in, typically by breaking through a door or window. "Unlawful Entry" means that no force was used--a window left unlocked, for example.

  3. HEY CAPPLEMAN -
    Pick whatever burglary number you want +78%, +133%, +265%
    ....where's that "Increased CPD Presence Occurring", occurring again?
    Oh, wait, it's not????
    Well how can that be? You said it was. I mean, you know the difference between 'increased' and 'decreased' right?.....right?????

  4. " Issued an alert ".........What the hell does THAT mean ??
    I'd like to see the " alerts" posted on the door of the Jewel, the banks in the neighborhood, the hardware stores, at Sheil Park and any others... way-y-y-y- too-o-o-o-o many " citizens" are walking around OBLIVIOUS to the total crap that's allowed to happen hereabouts . If I hit the lottery, I'll hit the " tip jar" so CWB notices can be posted in all the same places..( should be door to door ) !!

    1. This needs to be the spring of the year we band together and raise money to erect a few informational billboards to be strategically placed throughout the neighborhood. Who's up for spearheading a GoFundMe campaign?

      Delete
    2. I would gladly donate some money for billboards. Perhaps the only way to get our "leaders" to care is to public ally humiliate them and let the rest of the state & country know how they have allowed crime to get out of control, by decimating our police force.

      It's a good time to be a criminal here in Chicago. : (

  5. Sure glad that the Alderman is getting all the police protection he was promised, in return for his voting for a $549 Million increase in real estate taxes.

  6. Just remember that when you're home you have to be aware of your surroundings. When you're not home, it takes a little more mental effort, but you still have to be aware of the surroundings in your home.

  7. Here is an idea...why don't each of you tape a copy of these stats at the nearest 5 establishments (starbucks, marianos, etc.) By the end of the day, we can have the ward covered and push for some change. Just a thought.

    1. We should plan a group event to "paper the neighborhood." Post fliers, hand them out to people along the street. And lets not forget some billboards...

    2. I very much like this idea

  8. I don't think they're kicking those doors in like in the picture. Their pants would fall off.

  9. Time for private patrol, like they had in Edgewater a few years ago. Depaul has private police correct? Is it possible they can do like Loyola police and augment the CPD by patrolling outside of Depaul campus?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Yes, please provide us information for how we can get these "alerts" other than on CWB. Is there a website where we can input our cell numbers for instant emergency notifications of area crime sprees? Thanks.

  12. A word to the wise from one of Chicago's Finest.... we're not going to chase them, were not going to shoot them and we don't care about them (and "they" know). Your elected officials have mandated this, so get ready for the long hot summer, it's going to get much worse. Thank your Democratic Leaders, good luck and God speed.

    1. The more of them that know this the more will be out shopping in our neighborhood this summer. Lakeview is going to look like a set in The Warriors.

    2. No worries mate - we sold and moved (after 10 years near Addison). We might visit Lincoln Park during the day once or twice but we'll be safely out of the city by 7PM.

    3. The way things are going here, I'll give it 5-10 years and Chicago will be the next Detroit! It's a shame. SMH!

  13. So this is what happens when our wonderful leaders bow to the special interest groups to ensure their votes and calm protests while tying the hands of our police officers? I can understand why our police want to back away. If officers so much as look at a criminal sideways, they can be suspended or fired. And who could blame them for not getting involved? Thank Rahm and his cronies for all this.

    1. Well said.

      And sadly, Rahm and his do nothing Alderthieves will most likely be voted back in during the next election cycle.

  14. The other issue fueling the crime wave is a completely apathetic public. We vote for the klowns, and then we literally watch as we or others are victimized. I get not wanting to get involved, but when you don't even remove yourself from the line of fire--sitting there like a moronic target--there's something more deeply troubling here than stupid voters and stupid politicians. It's more closely related to what affects zombies.

  15. This.

    Shocked nobody has picketed and protested to shut down COH and Crib. You HAVE the crime stats and just cause.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I agree! I think people are too politically correct to protest
    COH! The media would rip the people protesting to shreds! We would be called racist. Very few people know about all the crime up here. The media sure doesn't cover it. I question if it could be considered a liability to the city and media for hiding the facts?
