Six weeks after looters ripped Chicago’s retail corridors, investigators continue to release footage of people who ravaged stores along the Magnificent Mile, in the Loop, and around Lincoln Park.
Police have identified more than 1,000 individuals in surveillance videos that have been released to the public since the August 10 crime wave.
The latest videos from CPD include a 47-minute compilation of footage that shows looters making entry to scores of stores, restaurants, and salons.
