I have been informed by the 20th District Police that there has recently been two home burglaries and one attempted home burglary in the northwest area of the ward.
The events occurred as follows:
Two burglaries occurred in the 2800 – 2900 blocks of W. Catalpa Ave. in October & November.
One attempted burglary occurred in the same area on November 16.
I am working with 20th District Police Commander Sean Loughran to ensure that there is an increased police presence in the area.
It is vital that residents be aware of unusual activity in the neighborhood and that they call 911 right away if they see or hear anything suspicious.
Residents are also urged to attend their neighborhood Beat Meetings. The next meeting for this area is:
Monday, December 5, at 7:00 p.m.
20th District Police Station
5400 N. Lincoln Avenue
I will keep residents updated as more information becomes available.
