Chicago police have issued a warning about burglars using hammers to smash the windows

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago police have issued a warning about burglars using hammers to smash the windows and break into businesses mostly in Wicker Park and Bucktown. One business in Pilsen was also targeted.

The smash and grab burglaries all happened in the early hours of Friday morning, between the hours of 2 a.m. and 5 a.m., according to CPD.

 

Police said in each instance, the suspects used a hammer to break the front glass doors of a business, get inside, and steal cash registers or cash drawers with an unknown amount of money inside. Police said they were using a black Chevy Equinox.

 

Three to five men were involved in the break-ins, CPD said. They were wearing black ski masks, black hooded sweatshirts and black pants.

 

Olivia's Market was one of the businesses targeted by the thieves. Security video shows the group of four suspects breaking in through the front door, rummaging around the store, and then fleeing.

 

"They broke through the glass, they came in, they went straight to the registers, were looking for any cash," said manager Michael Bedolla. "Yeah, that's been, like, their tactic."

 

The security video later shows a fifth suspect joining the group inside Olivia's Market as they went through the store and then left a suitcase. Just as they were about to leave, the suitcase is slammed and busted open on the ground, revealing they had gotten away with only business papers and no cash.

 

"We had to change up our tactic in terms of how we close up to avoid theft," Beodlla said.

 

It was a lesson learned after, police say, a group broke into the same store back in October. Security video from that incident shows them taking cash from the register before getting away in a white Hyundai Elantra.

 

"It makes me think a lot just how desperate people are," Bedolla said.

 

Police wouldn't say if the same group is behind both break-ins at Olivia's Market, but so far i
