Charges Filed In Jewelry Heist That Yielded 62 Rings

A 23-year-old man from Chicago’s Montclare neighborhood is charged with burglary and possession of burglary tools in connection with Monday morning’s break-in at a Lincoln Park jewelry store.

Pizarro (Chicago Police Dept)
Prosecutors say Doel J. Pizarro was chased down by police who saw him exiting the rear door of Steve Quick Jewelers, 2471 N. Clark, with an accomplice around 1:30AM.

Pizarro was carrying $1,085 cash, a ski mask, and a bag that contained a display tray of 62 rings, a crowbar, and large bolt cutters, according to an officer who was on-scene.

Investigators also found a glove behind the store that matched a glove that Pizarro was wearing, prosecutors said.

Bail for Pizarro has been set at $25,000. The second offender remains at large.

Court records indicate that Pizarro is also awaiting resolution of another case that accuses him of filing a false vehicle theft report, resisting police, and disorderly conduct last summer.

He received 2 years probation after pleading guilty to aggravated unlawful use of a weapon in 2010, according to court records.

  1. The bail should be $250,000,000 until he names his accomplice

  2. Another repeat offender that never really goes to jail...

  3. Another sack of sh*t who will be back on the streets shortly.

  4. With those satellite dish ears, one would think he would have heard the cops coming sooner than he realized.

    1. Funny as hell.
      Well done!

  5. Perhaps the judge will order the destruction of his burglary tools. That'll get him on the straight & narrow!!

  6. So glad they seem to have thrown the book at him with that $25k bail, wasn't bail higher for the DePaul kid that was stealing from his dorm mates?

  7. Depaul dude 100k bail. Guy with a screw loose, who thinks his neighbors are Nazis 50k bail Plus hate crimes charge! I don't know about anyone else, but it sure seems like a lot of the times the bail amounts and charge don't seem fair or proportionate. Seems like some offenders who are accused of violent crime get less bail a lot of the time.

  8. Plead out to boot camp. Great job cook county court system.

  9. A neighbor kid (suburban) grabbed a bike out of garage, rode it around the driveway then left it at the end of driveway. Owner calls cops and kid gets arrested. Bail was set at $40,000 after spending the night in local police lockup. He plead to misdemeanor and got 18 months probation. No previous arrests and not a trouble maker at school.

    Fast forward four years. The first thing this kid does after graduating from U of I - you are right; moves to Denver. Great job Cook County.
