    River North: High Rise Resident Tore Down 44th Floor Wall To Burglarize Neighbor's Unit, Prosecutors Say
    A River North man is accused of carrying out one of the most poorly-planned burglaries in history. 36-year-old Epifanio Esquivel-Perez used a hammer to tear down a wall between his high-rise apartment and a neighbor's unit, prosecutors say. He then crawled through the hole, collected the neighbor's valuables, and walked out of the neighbor's front door, according to court records.

  • Miss Colleen Lives in Jefferson Park

    There were over 100 people that came to the meeting that were against it. I agree that anyone there would have raised their eyebrows at the facts the people said against Arena.

  • Dennis 30 year Jefferson Park resident

    Yes, Miss Colleen. Lots of people against who yelled and railed and talked over anyone whom they disagreed with. A totally polite and civil crowd, many from miles away. Is there anyone from the opposition who is polite enough to permit the other side to state their case?
