Landlord/Tenant Dispute On Oakdale

Good afternoon, everyone, it's 12pm. Sorry I'm late, but I stayed up really late last night and just woke up. Anyway, today starts the three days of the St. Hyacinth's Carnival (Lawndale and Wolfram). It starts at 6pm and goes until 10pm, then tomorrow from 6pm to 11pm, and then Saturday and Sunday from 2pm to 11pm. Personally, I'm not really looking forward to it, as it brings gang problems over here, but hopefully it's good this year. Having said that, I will be kicking into special coverage mode from 9:30pm to 11pm to cover the carnival. My boundaries will be Ridgeway to the west, Milwaukee to the north, Central Park to the east, and Schubert to the south. My coverage will be in this color. I'm monitoring that small area just in case. If anything happens tonight, I'll be monitoring the carnival tomorrow the whole time its open. With that, here's crime for this afternoon and evening.

12:22pm - Landlord/tenant dispute. 41XX W Oakdale.

1:32pm - EMS run. 3607 W Fullerton. Man having a seizure in the parking lot of the Tony's. Thanks to ProdigalOne for obtaining this call.

2:36pm - Burglar report. 19XX N Lawndale.

3:09pm - The 2:36pm job is bona fide.

5:02pm - Gang disturbance. Cortland and Monticello.

6:19pm - Parker. 28XX N Ridgeway. Permit. Gold Dodge Caravan.

7:05pm - Assault in progress. 25XX N Lawndale.

7:47pm - Just so everyone knows, Zone 12 is experiencing lots of problems on the radios. There's a fuzzy sound that keeps cutting the dispatcher out when she talks. So a solution they have for it is switching over to Citywide 6. The frequency for that channel is 460.250. If you haven't done so already, please turn your radios to that channel.

8:12pm - Gang disturbance. Diversey and Lawndale. They're throwing up signs and harassing people at the bus stop.

8:27pm - Traffic accident. Central Park and Cortland.

8:36pm -1) Parker. 31XX N Ridgeway. 2) Parker. 25XX N Hamlin.

8:40pm - To a person named Undergrounded: I'm sorry to be putting you out like this publicly, but can you email me at, please? Thanks!

9:30pm - And my coverage of the St. Hyacinth's carnival has begun. Once again, I'm only covering the area of Schubert-Ridgeway-Milwaukee-Central Park.

10:00pm - The carnival should be letting out now. I'm listening for anything...

10:30pm - So far, so good.

11:00pm - That concludes my coverage of the carnival. Back to the normal monitoring. I will not be doing special coverage tomorrow evening, since nothing happened tonight. By the way, there's a criminal damage call at Cortland and Springfield with the caller's car window being busted out.

11:04pm - 1) Parker. 41XX W Barry. 2) Parker. 28XX N Ridgeway.

11:22pm - Disturbance. 3953 W Diversey. People being noisy. This is the address of the Golden Nugget at Diversey and Pulaski, I believe.

12:00am - I'm gone for the night. I'll be back in the morning. Hope everyone has a good and safe night.

Money Stealer At Dunkin Donuts On Belmont

Good morning, everyone, it's 12am. It's another clear night outside, in the upper 60s. It's supposed to be around 80 with thunderstorms possible. Hopefully they won't be too bad. Anyway, from 8am to 4pm, I'll only be doing coverage of Monroe and Funston schools in 25, meaning that you will only see calls from those two schools up here during that time period. I'll post calls like "Shots Fired" and etc. if they happen, though. Also, the St. Hyacinth's annual carnival starts tomorrow. Hopefully it'll be calm this year. I'll talk more about it later. In the meantime, here's crime.

12:10am - Theft. 3801 W Belmont. At the Dunkin Donuts. Male customer at the drive-thru just stole money out of the window where the cashier gives the customers their orders.

12:23am - I'm off to bed. Good night, everyone, and I'll be back tomorrow.

8:00am - I'm back. Good morning, everyone.

9:01am - Assault report. Funston school (2010 N Central Park). A parent wants a report for an incident that occurred at the school yesterday.

6:44pm - Chicago Park District security is reporting that there's a battery in progress on the 2300 block of N Lawndale. Seven teens are beating on one. I think this might be an error, as there's no park on Lawndale in the 2300 block. I think it might be Long.
