SEEING RED: Early-Rising Thief Chased On Addison

A neighborhood resident who lives near the 900 block of Addison awoke this morning to find a stranger breaking into his building’s laundry room. The citizen chased the offender toward the Addison Red Line and called 911.

The intruder, who has yet to be located, is described as a 20-something male white with a red beard. He was wearing a black hat.

Yesterday afternoon, a man fitting that same description was allegedly involved in two area thefts, that were reported on CWB.

And, on Friday morning, a resident of the 600 block of Cornelia saw a white man with a red beard, black hat, and black jacket breaking into a laundry machine.
