Lakeview Prowler Tells Cops He "Fell" Into Apartment After Seeing $20 Bill (And Other Burglary Updates)

Tactical officers responding to a suspicious person call arrived just in time to see a man peering into an apartment window in the 3100 block of N. Clifton Wednesday afternoon. The suspect fled, but cops eventually found him hiding in a nearby yard.

After telling cops that he saw a $20 bill inside a basement apartment and subsequently “fell into” the window, 31-year-old Joshua Davis was charged with attempted burglary and trespassing, according to court records.

Bail for Davis, who lists a church in the 600 block of W. Deming as his home, is set at $100,000.

Video Lesson

Here’s a good 30-second video to share with anyone who’s still not locking their car doors. It shows just how quickly a curious criminal can get in and out of a vehicle with any valuable contents. In this case, the thief got away with several high-end belts from a car parked in the 3800 block of N. Clark on Sunday morning.

Busted, Too

Canibano (Chicago Police Dept)
32-year-old Vincente Canibano of the 3700 block of N. Damen in North Center is charged with possessing burglary tools, theft of lost or mislaid property, and two counts of trespassing after police arrested him in the 1400 block of W. Addison on April 20.

Officers responding to reports of a suspicious person in the area saw Canibano hiding behind a garage and peeking into yards, court records say. Canibano “made direct eye contact with [officers] and fled” with a bicycle, backpack, and bottle of wine, according to the cops’ report. He was quickly apprehended.

Police said Canibano was unable to explain how he came to possess the bicycle and he “freely admitted” to having a pair of bolt cutters in his backpack.

They Can't All Be Winners

Police responded to a call of glass breaking in the 3900 block of N. Janssen around 5:50AM last Sunday. They said they didn’t find anything unusual.

But, when a resident woke up about an hour later, he discovered that his apartment had been burglarized while he slept—and he had evidence that officers came into his unit, too, but didn’t do anything.

Those cops were off-duty when the victim called 911. The next shift’s officers were...flummoxed.
Officer: “Was there a call here earlier?”
Dispatcher: “There was a criminal damage to property this morning. [The earlier unit closed the call out].” 
Officer: “You’re joking, right?” 
Dispatcher: “Nope. Not joking.” 
Officer: “Have a supervisor come over here.”

"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.
