UNWELCOME VISITORS: Area Burglars Are Having A Field Day

Clark (Cook Co Sheriff’s Dept)

An 18-year-old Calumet City man faces charges of burglary, unlawful use of a weapon, and possession of burglary tools after police found him inside an apartment building in the 1300 block of Waveland.

Officers went to the location at 2:30PM on March 12 after a motorist reported seeing a man use a pry bar to force his way through the main door.

On-scene, cops say they saw Anthony Clark emerge from a stairwell dressed in a black winter hat and winter gloves. It was 57-degrees that afternoon.

“Man, I was just visiting a friend in this building,” Clark allegedly told officers, “but I don’t remember his name.”

Police searched Clark and allegedly found a stun gun in his pocket and a pry bar in his “immediate area.” Bail is set at $50,000.
