A Lincoln Square bicycle shop has been burglarized twice in January (and at least three times since last summer), a clear sign of just how widespread overnight burglaries to businesses are on the North Side.

On Jan. 12th, cops rushed to the Turin Bicycle Shop, 4710 North Damen, around 4:30 a.m. after a passer-by reported that the store’s front glass had been broken, according to a burglary report filed with Chicago police.

Then, at 4:31 a.m. on Wednesday, a burglar alarm at the bike shop brought cops racing to the scene. They found the front glass door broken in, a newly-filed burglary report says.

Back on July 5th, a smash-and-grab burglar threw a brick through Turin’s front window and walked away with a bike.

Among the many other North Side businesses to be targeted by thieves after-hours recently are:
• LA Tan, 3103 North Ashland on Jan. 7th
• Contemporary Eye Exams, 2861 North Clark on Jan. 18th
• Pearl Vision, 1730 West Fullerton on Jan. 20th
• LaSalle Flowers, 130 West Superior, on Jan. 23rd
