Thank You so much for crime info.We live in the forgotten Logan Sq. 1 block N. Diversey. In our neighborhood its OK to have a drive through drug house and 65 calls on it and still no police. I do not think anyone cares enough in this area. 16th districts doing rolecall in front of all gangs home what does the Alderman or police do at Shakespear??? Nothing our neighorhood is being taken over by drugs,illegal bars that over serve and scum lords.

The RD number is the police report number, Ashes. There is no more info I have.

Anonymous 7:03, I'm glad you called your friend about that. Just as you typed up the comment up, the offender was shot by police.

Anonymous 6:54, no problem for all information. I do agree with your post, but I think the police are trying their best. They're not being supported by our city government.
