Garage Thieves

Just recently a burglar who was stealing from garages in Elmwood Park was arrested. Even though Elmwood Park is a distance from our neighborhood, this guy was on a bicycle so he was very mobile. The proceeds from the thefts were stuffed in his pockets.

Just recently a burglar who was stealing from garages in Elmwood Park was arrested. Even though Elmwood Park is a distance from our neighborhood, this guy was on a bicycle so he was very mobile. The proceeds from the thefts were stuffed in his pockets.
What he was doing was simply going to garage doors and checking them until he found an open one. Once inside, he would steal cash & items from the cars parked in the garage. It was real easy because people don't lock their cars once they park them in the garage. Moral of the story is that when you park in the garage, be sure to lock up the car, even if you lock the garage doors.

Bad Neighbors

I am wondering if the alderman or the city will ever do anything about our neighbors dumping sewage via a hose into the street drainage. We have complained and complained. So annoying!

  • "O'Connor is useless" vs "I found O'Connor's office to be very responsive"

    This seems to be the deal with O'Connor, you are in with the in crowd or you're not.

  • As I recall, that was how it worked with the former alderman.

Guy hanging around Cumberland/Lawrence

There is a homeless man named Dale hanging around the walgreens on Cumberland/Lawrence. He was just released from prison. He punched an 80 year old man in the face at the Jewel across the street a few years ago. He was sentenced 2 years. He is armed and dangerous. Chicago has banned him by he still hangs around in Norridge. I have seen him at Walgreens, and Butera in Norridge. Stay away from him. He is bound to snap like he did in the past. This is what he looks like:

  • Thank you for the info. Please let the Walgreens manager know. Last year there was a guy begging people for money, every morning, at the Jewel lot at Harlem/Foster. This guy was an alcoholic, you could smell the booze on his breath. I told the manager, they told him to leave the property. He has not come back since. The Walgreens manager has the right to ban anyone off the property.

    Seen him today at Harlem/Higgins on the bench outside TBK around 3:15 pm.
