NEARBY: Business Ticketed And Burglarized, Police Say

It was a rough start to the week for the proprietors of Bad Ass Coffee, 3737 N. Southport.

Police went to their store at 2:47AM Monday in response to a burglar alarm that had been triggered by the store’s front door. The coffee shop was issued a citation, according to police reports.

An early-arriving employee found something far worse than the citation when she entered the store. She found that the shop had, in fact, been burglarized. So had its neighbor, the White Birch Trading Company. The Birch Trading Company case number for forcible entry burglary is HW444275.

Bad Ass case #HW443827.
