One or more burglars broke into three Rogers Park buildings over the last two weeks — stealing everything from clothing washers and dryers to computers.
The burglary spree prompted the Chicago Police Department (CPD) to issue a community alert putting residents of the neighborhood on notice. It advised them to be watchful and call CPD if they know anything.
The alert, emailed to local media sources by Area North detectives, said unknown offenders entered residences through side and back doors to steal items.
All the burglaries occurred on West Jarvis Avenue, approximately three miles from Loyola’s Lake Shore Campus. The first incident occurred Oct. 9-10 sometime between 11 p.m and 6:15 a.m., the second on Oct. 15 between 1 and 1:45 p.m. and the third on Oct. 18 between 3 and 7 p.m, the alert said.
There is no known description of the offender(s), according to the alert.
The alert also advised people to pay attention to suspicious people and vehicles loitering in the area and to have a working surveillance system on their property.
Authorities are still investigating. If anyone has any information, contact the detectives at (312) 744-8263.
