GREEDY DELIVERY: Worker’s Phone Goes Bye-Bye At Halsted/Belmont

A delivery driver had her iPhone stolen at Belmont and Halsted at 2:30 this afternoon. After taking the woman’s phone, the offender fled northbound on Dayton Street, the alley-like street that runs north from Belmont between Halsted and Clark.

The thief is described as male, black, 5’10” tall, medium build, wearing a bright red track jacket.

After searching the area for the offender, an officer drove the victim to the Lincoln Park Apple Store to see if they could assist with tracking her phone. They had no success.

It is not clear if the woman filed a report.

Early Sunday morning, a man reported that his phone was stolen from the Subway restaurant at Belmont and Clark. That thief also escaped northbound on Dayton.
