DEFLOWERED: Burglars Enter Virgin

Four burglars slipped in the back door of the Virgin Mobile store, 2562 N. Clark, overnight and fled with its prized booty.

An alarm company and nearby witnesses called authorities at 3AM, but the crew had already made their escape by the time police arrived.

Officers say the four offenders appear to be male, black, some with facial hair. All of them wore hooded sweatshirts, one of which was red, and one wore a puffy vest or sweatshirt. They fled southbound through the alley in a dark-colored minivan.

The forcible entry burglary is recorded in CPD case #HW544807.

This wasn’t the first time for Virgin. The same store was targeted in a similar manner on March 11, according to the Chicago Tribune. Between $10,000 and $30,000 worth of goods was taken that time.
