ALERT: Police warn Garage Burglaries
Bucktown – Logan Square – 14th District Residents
A 14th District Community Alert Warning has been issued due to a number of recent garage break-ins. Items stolen included mostly hand and power tools. There was a cluster of robberies between April 2 and 10th according to the police.
The locations included:
- 2800 block of N. Dawson Ave. on April 2.
- 3000 block of N. Allen Ave. on April 7.
- 2900 block of N. Gresham Ave. on April 10.
Please remember to Lock your garage and install an Emergency Release Lock or Shield so a burglar can not access your emergency release by using a coat hanger to reach inside the top of the garage door and pop the emergency latch, freeing the door to slide open manually.
Always turn on your alarm, and if you don’t have one installed, Call Forest to see just how affordable it is to protect your home, your family and your garage!
Anyone with any information regarding these burglaries, please call Area North detectives at (312) 744-8263.
