Three men, one on probation and all on affordable bail for pending felony cases, are facing gun and auto theft charges after one of them allegedly stole a Cadillac from a West Loop restaurant valet stand Saturday evening.
Police are investigating another robbery reported in the West Loop on Saturday morning and one reported minutes earlier in West Town. The muggings follow two street robberies in the area on Friday night.
A prolific group of criminals specializing in armed carjackings and ATM burglaries targeted at least 12 businesses overnight just days after the FBI announced that they are getting involved in CPD’s pursuit of the crew.
A convicted murder who’s also a three-time convicted robbery offender got out of jail on pending three felony cases last September because a community bail fund — which claims to be “truly grounded in the presumption of innocence for all” — posted his bond.
