Couple of guys, up to no good

Just saw a pair of guys try to get into my building. Within a block of the Morse red line stop. They were probably looking for packages, but none were around.

One was a white guy, maybe 5'10" with braids, the other a black guy, maybe 5'8". Be on the lookout!

    I saw these two on the el yesterday. They were acting skeevy then too- it looked like they were casing for victims. If I see them again I’ll report. . .

    Any word if they were casing the little libraries in the neighborhood?

Package thief Loyola University area (Arthur and Sheridan)

Please, neighbors, watch for this package thief who likes to operate in the early afternoon. He wears dark clothing and a hoodie and carries a large bag.
We have had several packages stolen in our building the last weeks in my building and maybe he is the reason why you people are missing packages/deliveries too!

    Amazon still hasn't shifted the liability off of them bit they are now taking pictures of every package they leave on your porch/etc.

  • Jeffrey Littleton If you can't be a poet, be the poem.

    Maybe the long term solution is sucure package delivery boxes, especially for multi-units?
    There have always been package theifs but in recent years it's become an epidemic.

  • d3 NoHo

    Thats what amazon locker is for -- they already offer that option. Your building always has the option of installing a secure package receipt box but these aren't usually designed for multi unit buildings

Anyone know about car smashing and police on Farwell?

A car crashed into a parked car by Farwell and Wayne a few minutes ago. Lots of emergency vehicles. Anyone know more?

    Another quiet night up here north of Howard

  • Apparently cops were chasing a car and several cars were smashed up on Farwell between Glenwood and Sheridan. No word on who fired shots and whether they hit anyone. (When I lived north of Howard last year, I heard a young man get shot in the head while I was having breakfast. Besides the point in this thread, however, which is about a specific occurrence and not a survey of bragging points.)

We've discovered there's a rash of car windows being broken near the Pottawattomie Park area South of the park.
Really no items are being stolen from interiors,
It's just plain vandalism.

Pedestrian hit & run

My son was hit by a light silver Honda sedan when crossing the alley on Ardmore and Glenwood. The vehicle left the scene without even checking to see how bad the injuries were.

If you witnessed the accident, please contact me.

Thank you.

  • So sorry to hear this. I suggest that you post the message to Edgewater, since it wasn’t technically in Rogers Park.

  • I am glad to hear your son is alright.
