SHARE Cars burglarized in Metra parking lots on South Side

Metra Police are warning commuters after more than a dozen cars were broken into recently in parking lots at three South Side stations.

On Wednesday, someone broke the windows out of eight cars in parking lots along the Beverly Branch of the Rock Island line and stole items, according to a Metra statement.

Two of the cars were parked in the Brainerd Station lot at 89th Street and Loomis, and six of the cars were parked in the 91st Street station at 91st and Prospect, Metra said.

On July 31, eight other cars were broken into at the 93rd Street station on the South Chicago branch of the Metra Electric line, authorities said.

Police are warning commuters not to leave valuables in plain view, even if their vehicle is locked. The department is also stepping up patrols in parking lots where the burglaries have happened.

Metra Police and Chicago Police are investigating, and ask anyone with information to contact (312) 322-2800.
