CHICAGO STYLE: Daylight Break-in At Boystown Pizza Joint

UPDATE: Video of the break-in is now online.

Well, that was bold.

At 8:15 this morning, a would-be thief broke a window at Pie Hole Pizza, 3477 N. Broadway, then went inside and tried to steal an iPad from the restaurant’s counter.

The still-secured iPad can be seen dangling

It seems the good folks at Pie Hole had already considered that someone might try to steal their iPad because it was well-secured. The thief ran away empty-handed.

One witness reported the offender to be male, black, dressed in all black clothing, last seen running east on Cornelia toward the lake from Broadway.

Another witness said the offender was a female, black, in her 20’s, dressed in brown clothes and work boots. She was last seen heading northbound on Pine Grove from Cornelia, a block east of Broadway.

Then, a third witness said a man matching the description above, wearing a baseball hat and nylon pants, entered the store while the female stood on the corner acting as look-out.

The matter is recorded as an attempted burglary in CPD case #HW507857.

UPDATE 6:22PM: Added photo from the restaurant’s Facebook page.
