Once again, the burglar pushed through an air conditioning vent and ran out with the store’s cash register. And, once again, police found the cash register lying nearby.

Officers Friday responded to a 1:24AM burglar alarm at the store, 3830 N. Clark. They found the store’s back door open and a rear vent pushed in.

An evidence technician is on scene at this hour, processing the store as well as the cash register that cops found lying in the 1200 block of W. Byron.

The break-in came about 24 hours after five Lincoln Park restaurants lost their cash registers to a burglar who smashed through their glass doors.

Nuts On Clark was burglarized on March 29 and again on April 6.  Both times, the burglar entered by pushing in the rear ventilation shaft.

  1. I'm hoping at this point everyone is smart enough to take the cash out of the store

    1. You would think so. The broken windows/doors, etc....that has to cost a lot to fix.

  2. Or take security measures to prevent the exact same method of entry as the previous heist.

  3. How soon before the business owners say "Nuts to Chicago" and move to the burbs or out of state?

    1. The original owner recently died, I'm sure that's what the heirs afraid to come back to the 'hood are trying to do.

    2. What would they care if it's out of business. Until someone stands up to them, the mayhem will continue.
      Everyone is so politically correct. With this mentality, Chgo, Will be the next Detroit!
