Never let it be said that Chicago’s creative criminal element won’t take advantage of every opportunity.
Police this weekend warned Loop businesses that burglars are crawling down the side of a Chicago River bridge structure to burglarize a riverside restaurant via its scenic waterfront patio entrance.
CPD did not identify the restaurant, but they said the burglaries took place on the 100 block of North Wacker Drive during the overnight hours of June 2 and June 18.
In both cases, male and female burglars eased their way down the side of one of the city’s famed bascule bridges and jumped onto the restaurant’s riverfront patio. From there, the prowlers entered the eatery and took unspecified property.
Police described the burglars only as males and females between the ages of 18 and 24.
