Burglaries were reported at multiple businesses in a commercial building last week in the Rogers Park neighborhood on the North Side.

A man pried open the rear gate and basement door to the multi-unit building in the 6800 block of North Sheridan, according to a business alert from Chicago Police. This led to a common basement area for several businesses in the building, where the man pried open multiple storage areas to remove property.

Police said the man triggered an alarm while prying open the storage areas and that his movements throughout the building were captured on surveillance cameras.

The initial break-in occurred sometime between 11:30 p.m. May 4 and 2:06 a.m. May 5, police said. Another burglary occurred between 12:50 a.m. and 2:06 a.m. May 5.

The suspect is described as a, 18-to-25-year-old man standing between 5-foot-10 and 6-foot-2 and weighing between 170 and 190 pounds, according to police. He has brown eyes, black hair and a light brown complexion. He was wearing a white baseball cap, a blue and white plaid bandana, a black hooded sweatshirt, a black leather motorcycle jacket, blue stone-washed jeans and red, white and black Jordan basketball shoes.

Anyone with information about the burglary is asked to contact Area North detectives at (312) 744-8263.
