Five small businesses in Lakeview and nearby Lincoln Park have been burglarized in overnight break-ins this week.
The Lincoln Park burglaries were reported just doors away from two restaurants that suffered break-ins in late May.
The list of businesses affected includes:
– The Subway sandwich shop at 3706 N. Southport. The offenders made off with about $200 after breaking through the store’s back door sometime late Monday or early Tuesday morning.
– The Liberty Travel Agency at 2443 N. Clark. Offenders broke through the back door early Tuesday, pried open a small safe, and took about $100.
– The House of Wings, 2447 N. Clark. Offenders tried to break down the back door early Tuesday, but were apparently unsuccessful.
– The Subway restaurant at 2938 N. Broadway. Offenders entered by breaking the front door glass at 3:37AM on Thursday.
– The Lakeview Tobacco Store at 2657 N. Clark. Offenders entered the store by breaking out the front glass early Thursday.
No one is in custody for the crimes.
