Storage areas of two apartment buildings in southeast Lakeview have been targeted by burglars over the past month, according to a community alert issued by Chicago police.

Investigators typically issue alerts when they believe a series of crimes have been committed by the same person or group.

Police said the offenders in the Lakeview pattern entered two multi-unit buildings through front or side doors and then targeted residential storage areas.

The offenders struck sometime after 7 p.m. on April 14th in the 300 block of West Barry and again at 1:13 a.m. in the 400 block of West Barry on May 3rd.

Police are advising residents to tell family and friends about the pattern and to ensure that their doors are secure at all times.

Anyone with information about the break-ins may contact Area North detectives at 312-744-8263 regarding cases JC-255032 and JC-248417.
