Rogers Park burglar strikes 4 times on same block

Burglars have broken into apartments and residential storage rooms on a single Rogers Park block four times this month, according to Chicago police.

The burglar enters through a window or front door and takes bikes, jewelry, electronics, and other valuables. Then, the thieves walk out the back door.

  • around noon on September 13
  • between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on September 18
  • around 10 a.m. on September 19
  • around 2 p.m. on September 22
