People are finally starting to head back out to enjoy dinner at Chicago’s hard-hit restaurants. And the city’s criminals will be there to welcome them when they arrive. In fact, police say an auto burglar is already working hard on the Near West Side, where many favorite restaurants are located.
Auto break-ins have been reported to police on at least six evenings since March 10 around the West Fulton Market restaurant strip, according to a community alert from CPD. Nearly all of the break-ins were reported between 6:45 p.m. and 9 p.m.
