RUDE AWAKENING: Alley-Lurking Thief Seizes Opportunity (Again)

Hey! What’s that guy doing in my car at 5:30 on a Wednesday morning?

This morning, the answer to that question for a resident who lives at Belmont and Sheffield was “stealing your money and iPad.”

Police were at the victim’s address within 20 seconds of his call, but they could find no trace of the offender, who is described as male, black, wearing a blue hat and black clothing.

He was last seen in the victim’s car, which was parked the west alley of Sheffield north of Belmont.

CPD case number is HW512759.
