Two Andersonville businesses were targeted by burglars early Saturday, police said. The same crew is suspected of pulling off both break-ins.

First, two men broke through the front door of Skywalker shoes, 5668 North Clark around 3:25 a.m. The men collected boxes of athletic shoes and escaped in a white compact car, possibly a Volkswagen. Police said both offenders were covered in black and were wearing gloves.

Then, around 3:50 a.m., a burglar broke into Andersonville Wine and Spirits at 5201 North Clark. No further information was immediately available from police about the case except that property was taken from the store.

Thursday evening, two men broke through a front door to access a business office in the 2400 block of North Halsted. The owner did not immediately notice any property missing, police said.
