HEAD CASE: Lakeview Burglar Arrested; Cops Seek Victims

Detectives want to find the owner of this men’s ring
from the Fenger High School class of 1966.

Area North detectives are trying to identify more burglary victims after arresting a man they believe pulled off numerous residential break-ins around the 19th district.

Dauta Head, 46, of the 5300 block of S. Indiana in the Washington Park neighborhood, is said by police to have specialized in burglarizing garden-level apartments and multi-unit buildings since July.

Police say they recovered “numerous” items after arresting Head, including jewelry, cameras and laptops. Other items are known to have been sold at area pawn shops, cops say.

Head is being held in lieu of 25,000 bail.
