Ald. Deb Mell's 33rd Ward office burglarized, police say

Someone threw a rock through the door of the alderman's office at 3001 W. Irving Park Rd. around 3:45 a.m.

The intruder then fled the scene on foot, making off with what was believed to be computer equipment, according to police. "I'm really glad that no one was hurt". The alderman was not in the office at the time of the burglary, but a man who cleans the space, was and heard the front door shatter.

"Right now, I just really want to let the detectives do their work and we're going to get back and do our work", Mell said. The tablet is left in the front window of the office to display Bus Tracker information for the nearby No. 80 bus stop, Mell said.

It was not immediately clear if the crime was caught on surveillance video.

Mell represents the 33rd Ward, which includes all or part of the Albany Park, Avondale, Irving Park, Ravenswood Manor, North Park and North Center neighborhoods.
