Another Lakeview Restaurant Burglarized As April Averages 3 Break-Ins Per Day

Despite a couple of recent arrests, burglaries continue to be reported at breakneck speed around Lakeview, Lincoln Park, and neighboring communities.

An employee arrived for work Saturday morning at Farm Bar, 1300 W. Wellington, only to find that Lakeview restaurant had been burglarized overnight. Surveillance images of a suspect have been posted to Facebook. A second person was also involved, according to information posted with the pix.

“All of our staff were OK, thankfully,” a Farm Bar manager wrote, “but we did lose a laptop and a good amount of cash.”
