EDGED OUT: Witness Sees Burglary Team In Action

A resident in nearby Lake View caught a glimpse of a burglary team in action this afternoon. As CWB has been reporting, more than a dozen neighborhood residences have been broken into over the past ten days, mostly in Wrigleyville.

Around 2:45 this afternoon, a witness saw a black, male offender break into a home in the 1400 block of Cornelia. Moments later, the burglar fled with a partner in a black Ford Edge (see image). Case #HX140202.

Last week, a witness saw a man break the front door of a home in the 3700 block of Kenmore at 2:40PM. That burglar was described as a white male with brown hair who was wearing a light colored jacket and blue jeans.

The 19th police district’s anti-burglary team was disbanded several weeks ago.
