Officers responded to the 800 block of Roscoe at 5:45PM Monday after a 911 caller reported seeing a man taking things from a nearby garage. After looking at a photograph of the suspect in action, cops scoured the area and made an arrest in the 800 block of Buckingham. CPD case HX325695.

Rhygien Alibegg, 57, is charged with burglary. Bail is set at $30,000.
