THIS *IS* NUTS: Landmark Wrigleyville Store Burglarized For 2nd Time In A Week; Local Break-In Rate Soars Higher


Oh, come on. Again?

Yes. Again.

Nuts on Clark, the long-running snack shop at 3830 N. Clark that reported its cash register stolen in a burglary around 10:30PM last Tuesday, last night reported that its cash register had been stolen in a burglary. Again. Around 11:30PM. And, yes, it was a Tuesday.

Officers responded to the store after alarms sounded throughout the store and an on-site worker barricaded themselves on the second floor.

Police found the store’s back door open, merchandise “disturbed,” and at least one cash register gone. No one is in custody.

UPDATE: ABC7 speaks with the shop's owner about what happened.

Hits Keep Coming

The North Side’s love affair with burglaries continues to flourish, with break-ins soaring over 100% in Lakeview and over 70% in Lincoln Park this year. Among reports taken over the past three days:

Sunday
2:55PM — A woman returns home to the 1700 block of W. Altgeld and finds an intruder inside. The offender flees when he’s spotted. Description: Black male about 18-years-old, thin, wearing a green and white baseball cap with a flat bill.
6:52PM — Burglary reported to an apartment in the 1500 block of W. Altgeld. The victim tells police that several electronics devices have been stolen, including a phone that is pinging in the West Side’s Austin neighborhood. Officers in the 11th district find the phone. It’s sitting inside the victim’s 2015 Jeep, which was also stolen.
Monday
2:37PM — Burglary. 3900 block of N. Clark.
4:26PM — Burglary. 1700 block of W. Melrose.
Tuesday
A Lincoln Park man drives to the 18th district police station around 7AM to report that his home had been burglarized while he and his family slept overnight. The offenders took one of the family’s cars and other goods from their home in the 2700 block of N. Greenview. Officers find the family’s stolen car in the South Side’s Grand Boulevard neighborhood. One suspect is taken into custody there.
11:16AM — A construction worker reports that a facing tool has been stolen from a vehicle in the 1100 block of W. Patterson. Value: $6,000. Weight: 50 pounds.

  1. Nuts on Clark is at 3830 N. Clark, not 3230 N. Clark.

    In any case, the shitshow continues...wonder what will happen on Cubs game days? Plenty of easy pickings on clueless and drunk tourists going to the ballpark. This city is f***ed.

    1. Maybe if enough clueless & drunk tourists get robbed & beaten, there will finally be a big public outcry (and shaming of the mayor & alderbeasts) for all the crap that is happening in the area. Perhaps someone like Ricketts, who has a lot of clout, can finally get more cops in our district. He's investing a ton of money....can't imagine that he'd want his customers to become victims and word to get out that Wrigleyville is a very unsafe to bring your family.

      I agree that the city is f***ed unless we get this crime problem under control.

  2. Correct address is 3830 N Clark. Or did they move?

  3. I suppose it's only a matter of time before I am hit. Should I buy 10x the insurance I need in order to make a little scratch. Perhaps I too can make CWB!

  4. I'll bet Nut on Clark does most of their business on the internet.
    The owner will probably close the Clark Street location and open a distribution facility in the burbs. The Wrigleyville store will probably be purchased and become another Irish Tavern.

  5. Tom, Tom, Tom ??? Are you looking into this? Will you get back to us soon ? Even the church that both of your parents were buried from was broken into. Cubs game days? The red line will be overflowing with offenders heading home in the direction of 95th Street. Hum . . . Now what ever happened to the old Transit Police Unit ? Oh, they were disbanded and sent to the south and west side to handle shootings. Lake View is a sitting target ripe for picking.

    1. Tom doesn't care. Neither does Cappleman, Smith and a whole host of the other alderturds. They don't care at all. Just as long as they keep getting re-elected, continue to receive their obscene salary (for their part time gig), and lets not forget all the extra slush fund $$$ and the $$$ given to them from their rich donors. Disgusting, really.

      If they really did care, they would actually FIGHT for their constituents. They would DEMAND that the crime problem be solved in our area. Instead, it continues to get worse and worse. Seems the criminals have more rights than the law-abiding, tax-paying citizens.

    2. Their "constituents" keep voting them in for doing nothing to fight crime, so why would they change anything? Until the voters take charge of their districts, nothing will change. Really not that hard to understand.

  6. Why are thugs coming from the south and west sides to rob people on the north side ? Lack of Police presence?

  7. What a joke Nuts On Clark again broken into. How is this possible are the police doing anything? Any patrols? Did they see how easy it was the first time and not get caught just do it again?? I think the police need to step up patrol and try to catch some of these criminals in the act or before they get away. What is going on here?

  10. I'm sure there are many more details of the crime than are printed here or shown in the video, but the way it reads I'd be looking at an inside job. This is exactly the type of pattern my employees have followed when they decided to help themselves to some extra cash. :)
