Southport: Smash-n-grab burglars strike Bluemercury

Bluemercury on Southport. | Yelp
You probably already know about the string of smash-and-grab burglaries in which crews of thieves are breaking through glass doors to steal high-end bicycles from retailers on the North Side between 3 a.m. and 6 a.m.

Well, this morning, there’s a twist.

Around 5:50 a.m. on Wednesday, a motorist reported seeing two masked men hauling garbage cans full of cosmetics through the broken glass door of Bluemercury, 3512 North Southport.

The thieves loaded tubs of beauty products into a pick-up truck and then sped southbound through a nearby alley before turning west on Cornelia, the witness said. No one is in custody. Area North detectives are investigating.
