Drug Dealer on the Block

For the past several days I have seen a man repeatedly making drug deals outside my house and down the street. He walks down the block, passes someone, makes an exchange without stopping and continues walking. I am wondering what I can do about this. Who do I call? What is the procedure for addressing this whole keeping myself and family safe?
Thanks!

    See what you mean Fred, just wanted to throw in my wooden nickel regarding how full of cr@p the media is. Seriously, I could not believe how much they would outright lie and fabricate a story. Last time, it was in Lakeview and they had news stations, tons of stories, interviews, tons of police... all because this guy fell asleep drunk, his wife was worried about him because he was depressed, she called the cops to do a welfare check because she had to go to work, and then it got totally blown out of proportion, turned into a media circus and "barricade situation" when in reality the guy buzzed in the cops as soon as he woke up and realized something was going on. They are liars. *cue Henry Rollins singing 'Liar' in the background*

Our 19 year old charcoal grey tabby cat, Romeo, got out on Saturday (6/27) morning. He lives near the corner of Monticello and Berteau. He is NOT an outdoor cat and we are very concerned about him because of his advanced age, and the fact that he is deaf. He is fixed, he has claws, he does not wear a collar. His charcoal grey and has NO brown on him at all. He does have lighter grey/silver fur around his muzzle. He is usually quite timid and while he may scurry if you approach him, if you follow him he is likely to crouch down and let you pick him up. Please call or text 773.396.7283 if you see or have seen (since Saturday a.m.) him. Please help us bring our dear old man cat home.

  • Neighborly1~ Values community.

    I really hope you find Romeo!!!
    Has this been posted on the Lost Cats of IL Facebook page?
    Craigslist?
    Has anyone contacted the kill shelters - Anticruelty and Animal Care and Control? Nonkill shelters should be contracted too, but call and email the kill shelters first.
    Does he have a microchip? If not I would also post flyers in the neighborhood....
    I really hope he is found!!!

    The entire neighborhood from IP to Monticello and Hamlin to St. Louis has been flyered at every corner. He is on Lost Cats IL fb page and on the other neighborhood facebook pages. I have talked to and/or left a more detailed flyer with all the near neighbors. I have contacted animal control and Treehouse. We have litter boxes, clothes with our scent and food outside. I have spoken with all of the mail carriers in the area and every dog walker who I see. Thanks for the advice, but what I'm really hoping for on this page are sightings.

  • best wishes you find him soon - keep asking everyone & keep posting. Let us know when he is found - someone may have taken him in - knock on doors.

Car Stolen - Honda Accord Lisence # P41-0746

I came outside this morning to find my car gone. It hasn't been registered as towed, so it must have been stolen. It's a maroon-red Honda Accord, year 1992. It was parked on the corner of Albany & School. Please if you have any information let me know. :(

  • You should have an RD# from your original report. Call area north and ask a detective for its status. To be fair, the case load for the dicks is overwhelming. All Hondas and dodge caravans are up for grabs in chicago
