Robbers Strike Clark/Diversey T-Mobile

Robbers targeted a Lincoln Park T-Mobile store Wednesday evening, marking at least the third cellular store heist in our area since December 30. No one is in custody.

Around 6:35 p.m., three offenders walked into the TMO store at 2744 North Clark and began using wire clippers to cut away display phones, according to a witness who spoke with CWB Chicago.

“When store employees approached them, the one standing by the door reached into his coat and told everyone to back off. No gun was displayed, but it was implied that he had one. They then fled south on Clark Street with the stolen items,” the witness said.

The offenders were described as three black men in their early 20’s who wore black hoodies and dark jeans. They fled with three iPhones and an iPad, police said.

On December 30, a Metro PCS store was robbed at 2811 N. Broadway, less than a block from the T-Mobile outlet.

Earlier that day, a robbery crew threatened and Uptown Sprint store’s employees with pepper spray during a hold-up.

  1. Off topic, but the lovely lady responsible for filming the kidnapping and beating of a special needs man on Facebook Live appears to be out on parole from an arrest in Boystown. That's according to this tweet, anyway: https://twitter.com/CircusMaximus14/status/816823125354708992 Who knows? Might even be legit. Did a search on your site for Ms. Covington/Herring and came up blank. Whatever she was arrested for wasn't bad enough or interesting to make this blog by name or mugshot.

    1. She and others were arrested on October 4 for shoplifting liquor from the CVS on Southport.

    2. "Ms."? That's an earned title.

      I like how the MSM and SJW eyewitnesses describe the crime scene too...."The gentleman exited the building with the cash register contents while dragging the clerk by her hair". Or something along those lines.

    3. In the world of the Left Wing, criminals ARE gentlemen, and the rest of us are disposable.

  2. Don't they know when you steal a phone from the store like this they can disable it and it becomes worthless?

    1. You just take it over to the local store conveniently located under the L stops. They usually have a cardboard sign in the window that reads "We unlocka da phone - $15" or something like that. Then they sell it for $50. C'mon, where'd you just arrive from?

  3. My daughter was mugged at that intersection. Corner of Clark and Diversey in front of the donut shop. She lost her phone, but it could have been worse. Stay safe and don't walk alone if you can help it

    1. If there's two of you there's a group of 6 of them right around the corner to get the job done. Sorry lady, but gotta keep it real.

  4. All phones have a unique IMEI Number, once reported lost or stolen then become blacklisted and cannot be activated by any other carrier. Like a kill switch for Mobile phones.

  6. I have a less than $100 LG cell phone. I'm amazed at the value of some cell phones to thieves. Maybe it's time to put them in a case? And notice they had wire cutters, they knew how to get them.
