Police arrested a man at 1141 N. Milwaukee Avenue, after police responded to a call of a man shooting off a rifle that was covered in a white sheet. A handgun was recovered by police at Division and Cleaver. An unidentified witnessed identified two other suspected gang members who were at that time attempting to gain entry into a row house inside Noble Square. The rifle was taken by one of these two.

My bike was stolen off my balcony last night, at the corner of charleston and leavitt.
It's a blue schwinn with a few stickers on it, black banana handlebars with breaks on top. If you see it please let me know! I'll look for pictures of it and post it on here.
Thanks for any insight!

I saw two loose dogs at 6:30 this morning on Palmer and Drake running towards Central Park. One was a light tan chihuahua and the other was a darker brown, longer-haired dog, maybe a long-haired chihuahua. I wasn't able to catch up to them, but here is a not-so-good picture in case anyone recognizes them. You can zoom in on them. They turned and looked at me, but when I started to move towards them they turned and ran.

At 5:30 a frantic woman ran up to me saying she needed $28 to pay a tow truck. Her aunt has been in a wreck and is at the hospital. She's lived at 3301 (Schubert) for 12 years and will pay me back double. She's seen me before when she's been out walking her gray poodle.
I've never seen this woman or her dog. I confirmed with other residents at 3301 that there is no Marisol.
She's about 5'4" dark hair, dark tan complexion. Wearing black shirt and black Capri pants. Has a tatto of praying hands.
Heads up on the scam.

Okay, so shoes have been hanging over a power line on Rockwell, just south of Fullerton, for a while now (many months, anyway, can't quite recall when I first noticed them). I know there are different explanations for this, but I assume this means drugs are sold nearby (though this way of communicating seems bizarrely old school to me). I do get the sense, based on some things I've seen in the past few months, that there is more drug/illegal...

I know there are different explanations for this, but I assume this means drugs are sold nearby (though this way of communicating seems bizarrely old school to me). I do get the sense, based on some things I've seen in the past few months, that there is more drug/illegal activity on my block than there used to be. Yesterday I noticed a new pair of shoes strung up on another line just a bit south, less than 1/2 block away.
Any insights or thoughts here? Or noticed anything similar on other blocks?

She was on the even side of the block. Gorgeous and unique markings, pictures don't do her justice. Looked like a mix of a Bengal, tabby, and black cat. She was interested in me but it took awhile for me to coax her out from behind the fence. I pet her for awhile and she was really happy to be pet but then after a few minutes hissed and darted away so I wasn't able to grab her. If this...

If this looks like your lost cat, this was at 1:30 AM Friday night. I know some people from Tree House are on here.'if you guys have room, you should take her. She's gorgeous and friendly. I must have pet something that was painful

Now that the Riot Fest controversy appears to be resolved there still remains real issues to deal with. The ones who should step-up to bat are the ones who successfully fought against Riot Fest in Humboldt Park. We need to continue the battle ourselves against the shooting deaths in the Humboldt Park Neighborhood, the rampant drug sales that fuel crime in the area, the gang leaders that recruit young children into their gangs for drug money profit in order to

My husband and I found this dog trapped in the yard of a house that is being rehabbed next door. There is a sign posted with "lost dog" and that some is coming back tomorrow and some phone numbers. This dog sounded like he has the dog flu as he's hacking and "honking." I don't see any food or water. I'm guessing whoever found him is trying to keep him out of CACC. He seems sweet and friendly. If anyone recognizes this dog he's at 2518 N Sawyer.

Just heard 5-6 shots from what sounded like wabansia and albany followed by screeching tires. Anyone else hear this or know what happened?

The water line is leaking between the Water main on the street and my house. We had the water meter people over and they shut down the water in the house, but we could still hear water flowing under the house. When they shut down the water from the water main the noise stopped. Has anyone dealt with this before and if so do you have a recommendation for a plumber?

Does anyone know what the low-rise building between the Blue Line and Milwaukee Avenue just west of Leavitt is going to be? Is this part of the 606 park? It's a long single story structure they've been putting up for a few months.

Saw this smaller size female pittie girl running south in the alley between Rockwell and Maplewood at Wabansia. She looks to be a stray for some time as she is super skittish and skinny. Came up to me when I got down to her level but was shaking and very scared. Tried to catch her but had no leash and she took off when she heard birds. Probably lingering around Maplewood Park. Really hope she finds her way home :(

I live right next door to a community garden. This may be a stupid question, but how does one go about acquiring some gardening space in a community garden? Is it first come first serve? I have no idea how this works and my google searches are not giving me any helpful information.
