Been Burgled? You May Get Your Stuff Back
"I was at a District Advisory Committee meeting earlier this week at the 19th Police District (formerly the 23rd District -- at Addison and Halsted), and Commander John Kenny announced that officers recently recovered more than 3 large storage units full of stolen items, primarily stolen bikes and high-end strollers. The storage units also contained many unopened FedEx and UPS packages, presumably taken from the front steps of buildings.
If you have had a bike or stroller stolen, or never received a package from FedEx/UPS that you were expecting, you may want to get to the police station this week. The officers will have a room open with the recovered items and are hoping people can claim what is theirs. The police department room will be open this coming week, Monday 3/26- Friday 3/30 from 8am-5pm, and on Saturday 3/31 from 8am-12noon. Happy Hunting!"
UU Note: You can read about the raid on the home and storage lockers here, where, in addition to the loot, police found garage door openers labeled with addresses. The accused is a fence and cyber-stalker of cops. Not a good guy.
