Catalytic Converter Theft

Caution Catalytic Converter theft! I got in the car this morning, parked on 2200 Hoyne across the street from the school, at 5:30AM and found the car running really loud. Took it to Chevy dealer in Lincoln Park on Norht and it's $1200 to fix the stolen Catalytic Converter.

    I witnessed the thieves in action in the 1800 block of W. Dickens at 4:00 am this morning (Dickens and Wolcott), so it sounds like they were making the rounds. I was able to get 911 on the line while they were completing the theft, but by the time a patrol car responded they were long gone. It was three men (Caucasian or Hispanic) who looked to be in their early 20s, slim/average build wearing black hoodies. They were driving a black 4 door Chevy sedan (maybe a Cruze or Malibu). I couldn't see the plates. They pull up next to the target car and two get out, one climbs under the car while the other stands between the cars as a lookout. Then the noise starts - sounds like a power/reciprocating hack saw cutting through a sheet of metal (that's what woke me up). They finish the job, throw the converter in their trunk and drive off. It probably took them less than 5 minutes.

    I have a Viper alarm and a cat clamp. My converter was stolen 3 times.

A message from Alderman Scott Waguespack:

I want to thank you for your support in the municipal elections in February as I was able to work with you to gain 79% of the vote in the 32nd Ward vote. The elected school board issue also tallied about 83% of the vote.

Construction start time

Is there a time restriction on when construction can start for the day?
I know the Bloomingdale Trail construction is behind schedule a bit, but do they need to start working at 6:30 in the morning? Jackhammers were being used at 7:15.

I won't even get into the issues with parking/traffic on our street/intersection.

Dog needs new forever home

Sam is an 8 year old Cattle Dog Mix, about 45 lbs. She loves to cuddle and would be great for all people young and old **except for families with children. She is house trained, great on a Leash, loves long walks (on the beach). Loves jumping and running at the forest preserve and listens well off lease. She will do well in a home with other dogs.

The reason why I need to find her a new forever home...

The reason why I need to find her a new forever home is that she **can not be around kids, especially crazy toddlers. When around little kids she gets scared which leads her to become aggressive towards them. But with that said... she is AMAZING with adults. She is a little timid and needs a time to get to know you.

  • I may know of a potential adopter in the neighborhood. Please email me at brian.juncker@gmail.com if interested in discussing.

Have you experienced an act of kindness recently?

Hello friends and neighbors! Have you experienced a random act of kindness lately? Someone who helped you out in some way – big or small – went beyond the call, or just put a big smile on your face? Would love to hear your stories about who our community goes out of its way to help each other and make things better, even if that’s one person at a time with some small gesture.

  • If my neighbors on each side of my building are reading this, I'm still waiting for the thank you for shoveling your sidewalks. Here's your opportunity!

Missing a little orange cat?

My boyfriend just got in and said he saw a small orange cat on Oakley, near Armitage. No collar. He tried to coax it over but it ran away. This was about fifteen minutes ago. That's all I've got. (He said it was small, but ours is a big fifteen-pound guy.)

Parking Lot Dent Repair Scam Alert

Earlier this afternoon, a couple guys appeared to be scamming an older Asian gentleman with a Lexus in the Walgreen's parking lot at Fullerton / Greenview.

Apparently, this type of scam is very common. Two individuals approach another individual and offer to repair a car dent for less than what it would cost in a bodyshop. Often times, the individual scammed goes to an ATM to withdraw cash to pay for the body work and the work done is shoddy...

Earlier this afternoon, a couple guys appeared to be scamming an older Asian gentleman with a Lexus in the Walgreen's parking lot at Fullerton / Greenview.

Apparently, this type of scam is very common. Two individuals approach another individual and offer to repair a car dent for less than what it would cost in a bodyshop. Often times, the individual scammed goes to an ATM to withdraw cash to pay for the body work and the work done is shoddy and, often times, more money is requested to pay for the job.

I called 911 to report the possible incident; however, the Asian man and the scammers seemed to have parted ways before the police arrived.

The scammers appeared to be in a silver Chevy with a license plate that looked like R1460149 (from a distance). One scammer appeared to be of Latino descent with a goatee (I cannot remember that with 100% certainty). The other gentleman was a taller, skinnier fellow who was wearing a snow hat.

  • Saw these guys in the Costco parking lot (Clybourn & Damen) on Wednesday and reported it. This time it was a green minivan.
