THE BACK DOOR METHOD: Thief Snares Cash At Redmond's

As employees wrapped up their after-hours business at Redmond’s Ale House, 3358 N. Sheffield at Roscoe, they realized that they were missing some cash.

Police were called at 2:36AM and the mystery was quickly solved. Review of surveillance video showed the thief entered an area without authorization, took more than $500 and fled out the back door nearly two hours earlier, at 12:53AM.

Police describe the thief as a male, black, with a light complexion, 5’9″ tall, thin build, very short hair, wearing a white t-shirt with thin black horizontal stripes, a coral necklace, big earrings, and carrying a black book bag.

An evidence technician went to the scene and security video has been preserved by Chicago police in this matter, which has been classified as a burglary under case HW379412.
