Burgled Between March & November? The Cops May Have Your Stuff

This press release from the police covers the 19th and 20th Districts, both of which include Uptown. The police arrested two people who committed home invasions between March and November of this year.  If you were burgled, please try to stop by and see if your stuff is among that which was recovered.

"Chicago Police have recovered numerous unclaimed items including, but not limited to, cameras, laptops and jewelry such as wedding bands and several other rings with precious stones. During an investigation, two offenders were arrested and charged relating to multiple burglaries in the area of the 19th (Town Hall) District and the 20th (Lincoln) District.
  • Daunta Head was charged with four felony counts of Burglary-Residential, one felony count of Burglary and three felony counts of Theft. 
  • Patrice Banks was charged with three felony counts of Theft and one misdemeanor count of Theft.
  • Head appeared in Central Bond Court on November 14, 2014. Banks appeared in Central Bond Court on November 21, 2014.
Area North Detectives are inviting the public to identify and claim their stolen property. The items are believed to be specifically from victims in the area of the 19th (Town Hall) District and 20th (Lincoln) District, who were burglarized earlier this year between March and November.

Anyone who has been the victim of a burglary in the area is encouraged to attend and identify stolen items at the Bureau of Detectives-Area North Auditorium, 2452 W. Belmont Ave., on Friday, December 5, 2014 from 4:00p.m. to 7:00p.m. Persons wishing to claim stolen items must be able to provide proof of purchase or ownership. For further information, please contact Area North Property Crime Detectives at 312-744-8263."

This looks like an expansion of the investigation of recovered goods we ran last month, in which only one alleged burglar (Daunta Head) was nabbed.  Now there is a larger area and a longer period of time in which the burglaries took place, as well as a second suspect.

Update:  NBC Chicago has a story on how some residents were reunited with their stolen belongings Friday night.
