Bondage Equipment Stolen Near Lawrence Hall

By Hunter Clauss | Wednesday, May 26, 2010

Chicago Police Sgt. Jeff Sacks informed residents gathered at this week?s CAPS meeting for beat 2031 that a suitcase full of bondage gear was stolen from a car parked near Lawrence Hall Youth Services, 4833 N. Francisco Ave. The value of the gear is estimated to be $2,000.

?If you see kid [at Lawrence Hall] with bondage equipment, it?s probably stolen,? said Sacks.

Sacks also said thefts in the police beat are down compared to last year. Between March 30 and May 25, there were 18 reported incidents of theft. During the same time last year, there were 34 reported incidents. Sacks said a lot of those thefts took place in cars, and he said residents should not leave any valuable items in their vehicles. Sacks also said residents with GPS devices should also take out the GPS holders, because some burglars will notice the holder and break into a car to see if the device is in the glove compartment.

While the number of reported thefts was down, reported cases of motor vehicle theft increased compared to last year, said Sacks. Between March 30 and May 25, there were seven reported incidents of a motor vehicle theft. Last year, there were three stolen cars reported during the same time period.

The next CAPS meeting for beat 2031 is scheduled for July 27 at the Anderson Pavilion of Swedish Covenant Hospital, 2751 W. Winona St.
