Sea Coast Mazda

Two underage burglars were caught after a short foot chase across the Halsted Strip in Boystown last night.

Police responding to a burglar alarm in the 800 block of Buckingham around 9:30 saw two suspects fleeing through the alley between Buckingham and Roscoe. One was taken in to custody in the alley, but the other decided to make a run for it, heading east and  crossing Halsted near Nookies Tree with an officer hot on his tail. The chase ended quickly thereafter.

At least one of the offenders is a juvenile who lives near Halsted and Grace.

The forcible entry burglary is recorded in CPD case HX243653
