21 cars burglarized in Loop parking garages overnight

A group of thieves burglarized 21 cars in two separate Loop parking garages early Wednesday, Chicago police said. No one is in custody.

Police were called to the garages on the 200 block of West Washington and the 200 block of North Wells by a witness who saw the break-ins in progress via video feed around 3:10 a.m.

Three men wearing dark hoodies broke into 14 cars at the Washington location and seven more at the Wells facility, said CPD spokesperson Karie James. The men broke windows on all of the vehicles to gain access to the interiors, she said.

Police had not yet contacted all of the cars’ owners as of mid-morning Wednesday, James said, but “items are possibly missing” from them.

Area Three detectives are investigating the break-ins.
