North Side detectives are warning businesses in the city’s Near North Police District about burglaries that resulted in many “expensive items” being stolen from three high-end retailers in the last two weeks.This is the Magnificent Mile area. (The article goes on to say that one of the locations was the 0-99 block of Oak Street, which is where a lot of high end stores are located.) The police want the public's help, but they won't release any information about the crimes -- least of all a description of the perpetrators. Don't want to scare off the tourists or offend anyone! It's really getting unbelievable. I haven't been down to that area since around Christmas. Maybe I'll wander over there some night this week to see what the vibe is like, with what seems to be a big uptick in crime over there. Sweet Home, Chicago.
However, while police are asking for the public's help in the investigations, police would not release locations, exact dates or times of the burglaries.
