Downtown restaurants aren’t seating any customers these days — Thanks, COVID! — but that hasn’t stopped a burglar from visiting a few eateries along the Magnificent Mile.

Area Three detectives have linked three restaurant break-ins to the same offender over the past month. In each case, the man forced his way into a restaurant and took property. Detectives linked three burglaries to the pattern:

  • on the 600 block of North Michigan on the evening of November 12
  • on the 200 block of East Ohio at 11:12 p.m. on November 14
  • on the 500 block of North Michigan on the morning of December 5

According to CPD’s alert, the burglar is a Black male between 50- and 60-years-old who stands 5’8” to 6’2” tall and weighs 180 to 220 pounds.

Anyone with information about the incidents can contact Area Three detectives at 312-744-8263 regarding pattern P20-3-219.
