CHICAGO — Newly released surveillance videos show a serial burglar breaking into one of Wrigleyville’s longest-running neighborhood bars last week. Chicago police have linked the case to three other break-ins at bars along the Wrigleyville entertainment strip.
The footage below, provided by Nisei Lounge, shows the burglar pacing outside the bar at 3439 North Sheffield around 7:12 a.m. Friday, September 15. As the cameras roll, he pushes through a glass panel and enters the bar.
Earlier this week, CPD said the crime was related to break-ins at two bars in the 3400 block of North Clark on September 13. A bar in the 1000 block of West Addison was also burglarized about two hours before Nisei.
Anyone with information about the man can contact Area Three detectives at 312-744-8263. The CPD crime pattern number is P23-3-071.
