watch out for con artists

The Chicago Police Department released a community alert for senior citizens in the 22nd and other police districts to be aware of confidence games. Offenders (usually 2 or 3) gain entry by ringing the doorbell or knocking on the door and giving various false reasons for entry. Once inside, they steal property. Offenders are described as male white or Hispanics, age 30 to 50.  Be aware of this situation and alert your neighbors.  CLICK HERE to see commuity alert.

Call 911 to report suspicious people. Write down vehicle information.  Call 311 to verify whether a city worker was sent your home. Do not allow service people into your home without a scheduled appointment and always request identification.

If you have any information, contact Area South Detectives 312-747-8273 or
