DO IT FOR THE CHILDREN: Child Welfare Specialist Hangs With Robbery Associates On Aldine

Another robbery attempt failed this morning in the area of Halsted and Buckingham.

Officers stumbled upon the remnants of the incident around 3:10AM at Halsted and Aldine, immediately making contact with four individuals who were associated with the would-be thieves, but who were not directly involved in the crime.

One of the offenders, a heavy set male, black, wearing a white t-shirt, was last seen running toward the lake on Aldine from Halsted.

Other individuals who were involved in the attempt wore shirts on their faces.

No police report was filed in the attempted robbery, however two individuals in the group of associates were found to be minors in violation of curfew laws.

Interestingly, one of the individuals interviewed with the “associates” is a female Illinois Department of Children and Family Services child welfare specialist who lives in a near west suburb.
