CONDO CON: Burglar Arrested In Lake Shore Drive High Rise

A man is in custody after allegedly burglarizing two condominiums in a neighborhood high rise Wednesday afternoon.

Police were called to 3550 N. Lake Shore Drive at 2PM after building management reported observing a burglar on surveillance video. Officers arrived quickly and arrested the man in a unit on the 19th floor.

A second unit on the 19th floor was also burglarized, according to officers on scene.

Early this month, 19th district officers told a neighborhood CAPS meeting that a burglary suspect was believed to be entering buildings on Lake Shore Drive by following vehicles into parking garages and then working his way to residential floors.

Charges are pending.
