Good morning, everyone, it's 9:28am. It's not so cold today, but it is cloudy. They say we're supposed to have morning drizzle, and it's supposed to remain cloudy. But it is supposed to be rather warm, in the upper 50s, to be exact. Tomorrow, it'll be in the mid 60s with thunderstorms in the afternoon. So we'll see how crime plays out today and tomorrow. Anyway, Tuesday marks two years of this blog. Wow. Can't believe it. Well, here's crime for today.
9:29am - Municipal ordinance violation. 1818 N Harding. Cars being worked on in the garage.
10:10am - Suspicious person. 4054 W Dickens. Two male Blacks in a gray pick-up truck pulled up in the alley and went inside into a building across the alley from this location.
10:36am - Burglar alarm. 4130 W Oakdale.
11:33am - Theft. 3035 N Pulaski. Male Black, brown jacket, black hat and blue jeans just stole merchandise from the AutoZone. He fled towards Barry in a black Honda Civic with a plate of 2741824.
11:51am - 1) Narcotics. Central Park and Milwaukee. Two people in a building doing drugs. 2) An RD number has been pulled from the AutoZone. It's HS625988 with the event number of 06709.
1:26pm - Assault. 2530 N Hamlin. Caller was threatened.
1:41pm - I have to go to the store. I'll be back in a few minutes.
1:50pm - I'm back from the store. But I've got news to share. When I was coming home, I observed three men at Diversey and Ridgeway, by the bar, checking out the brand new gang taggings that just went up as recently as last night. These men are gangbangers. I recognized them, and I'm sure you're all about to know who I'm about to talk about. There was a male White, 18-21 yrs old, 5'8, short blonde hair, black baseball cap, red hoodie and black pants with two male Hispanics in black hoodies. As I said, they were checking out brand new taggings. They went towards George on Ridgeway. Now I believe we're going to have some trouble in this area tonight.
1:56pm - Narcotics. 31X0 N Monitcello. Gangbangers getting high.
2:37pm - Parker. 2300 block of N Avers.
2:42pm - My "call" is dispatched.
3:02pm - Beat car 2523 has a traffic stop at 3034 N Pulaski. And they never came to my call. As a matter of fact, it's coded a 2B0y. It's not the regulars on the car today, so no surprise. Oh well. At least I sent the text and the information was taken. This way no police officers can say no ticket was made for this when we have a shooting later...
3:20pm - Disturbance. 2850 N Lawndale. Kids jumping on a trampoline in the rear of a vacant building that burned down about two months ago.
4:03pm - Parker. 2537 N Hamlin. Thanks to ProdigalOne for getting this while I napped.
4:15pm - Gang disturbance. Armitage and Pulaski. They're throwing up signs and loitering.
4:38pm - Battery. 3853 W Palmer. Caller was struck by three males in their garage.
4:44pm - Assault. 2537 N Lowell. Tenant threatened the landlord. This tenant is a mental. The officers know him well, and this a regular place they go to.
4:45pm - Some call at 2339 N Avers.
4:59pm - Beat car 2523 is recovering a stolen vehicle from 2933 N Harding.
6:46pm - I have to go eat. I'll be back.
7:04pm - I'm back.
7:44pm - Gang disturbance. Armitage and Pulaski. They're on top of pick-up trucks, flashing signs, acting stupid. Doing other foolish things too.
9:07pm - I have to go. I'll be back tomorrow. Good night, everyone
