NEW: Lakeview Theft Crew Suspects Caught On Tape


Yesterday, we told you about a teen theft crew that has been distracting Lakeview retailers while other team members steal unattended cell phones and car keys. Police say at least nine shops were targeted on Saturday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

Welp, today we woke up to find a friendly email from the good folks at Deltronics Pro Audio Repair, 2911 North Halsted.
“I’ve attached a photo that we were able to capture of the teens that you mentioned in your recent article. They stopped at our establishment on Tuesday night and tried every which way to distract us and get inside the shop. It was very uncomfortable, but fortunately, they left. I hope this helps.”
Victims and witnesses of the crew have described them as three to four black males between 15- and 20-years-old; 5’9” to 6-feet tall; 150- to 160 pounds. One wears tan boots. Another has a jean jacket with a tiger or similar emblem on the front. Most are said to be wearing acid wash or ripped jeans.

Many thanks to our good neighbors at Deltronics.

  1. Would have been better to let them in and introduce them to the back side of a wrench

  2. I sincerely hope it won't be another "catch and release" by the Cook County Courts system.

    1. With Foxx in it will be because she raised the threshold of retail theft

  3. I know for a fact they don't do this in their hoods cause they know they will get beat down or worse maybe the north side should play the same way

  4. The same crew has been terrorizing business owners in 12, 14 and 18. The "catch and release" juvenile justice system assigns points to crime and there really isn't any punishment until they use a gun or hurt someone. Neighborhood Watch/CAPS facilitators in West Town/12 have gotten 3 names (from fictitious hair cut appts they made!) and sent those with photos and FB page links to Chief of Detectives Staples, who was formerly our very active and much-respected commander, and our Robbery-Burglary Team (RBT) sgt in 12. Hopefully, CPD will catch them AGAIN and they soon have a enough "points" to win an all expense paid staycation at Audy Home.

  5. Anybody thinking of the biker/bar scene in A Bronx Tale?

    "And now... you's can't leave.."

    1. The "curb" scene in American History X kinda came to mind for me.

  6. They so dumb. All the shopowners have to do is paste their picture in the door and write "Wanted" or "Stay out". But knowing who they are, the shop keepers can now lock the doors and not let them in.

    1. That's a great idea actually if anyone local can print out the flyers and distribute them.

    2. Yes. No problem. Because no one will be knocking on their doors calling them racist.

  7. CWB, please get these photos to the police so these thugs can be taken off the street.

  8. You gotta wonder why the media wont run the story with a great clear photo like this?

    1. Media won't run photos because they are juveniles. Chief of Detectives and Robbery-Burglary Team detectives in the districts have this and other photos taken in 12 plus their FB page links. 911 wouldn't send officers today when they refused a lawful order to leave an insurance office in LP. Then 311 wouldn't write a report. SMH.

    2. Juveniles, hell they are becoming career criminals in this neighborhood and some one is going to die from this "juvenile" behavior ridiculous and any way you do NOT know they are juveniles, they could be young 19 or 20 year olds so print them

      Delete
    3. they are no longer innocent minors, they are career criminals and eventually they will become violent or kill some one. They gave up their "innocent minor" status once they started robbing places. Are they Center On Halsted Innocents? Post the criminals pictures to save a person from being injured by a robbery beating

  9. Here's an idea. Catch them and confiscate their coats, shoes, money and make them walk home. Whenever that may be.

  11. Good work Deltronic Audio catching these culprits on camera!

  12. Kim Foxx is changing the amount of money for a misdemeanor charge. From $500 to $1000. So this means, if you rob or steal less than $1000 from someone (a store) it's considered a misdemeanor and you walk.

    1. Well that makes sense especially when a pack of cigarettes is $12 there.

    2. I just wish they had pulled out a shiny object when the police approached to arrest them.

  14. Four in custody. Thanks to 12th District business owners who IDed them and the police who scooped them up. Charged in 12 and given a free ride to Area North where more charges were filed. Now let's see what the juvie justice system does...another slap on the hands?

    WEST TOWN — Three teens from Lawndale were arrested earlier this week as they were putting gas into a stolen car at a Bucktown gas station near Western and Fullerton avenues, police said.

    The teens were arrested at 5:55 p.m. on Monday after they were seen matching the description of suspects in a robbery that just that occurred, said Officer Nicole Trainor, a Chicago Police spokeswoman.

    The teens were pumping gas into a stolen vehicle at a gas station in the 2300 block of North Western Avenue, Trainor said.

    Names and mug shots are not available because the alleged offenders are juveniles.

    Before the arrest, the juveniles were being sought by the Near West Police District's (12th) Robbery-Burglary Team, who'd put out an alert because youths had been harassing small business owners at salons and boutiques along Chicago Avenue, said Kim Shepherd, a volunteer CAPS facilitator for the Near West Police District (12th)....
