Police are warning Wicker Park, Logan Square, Noble Square and Bucktown residents about a string of burglaries this month in the Northwest Side neighborhoods.

The burglars forcibly pried open doors and stole property from inside, usually while the residents were at work, according to a community alert from Chicago police. In a few cases, the building was under construction and the burglars had struck while building workers weren’t present.

The burglaries happened:

  • between 4 p.m. and 6 a.m. Oct. 1 to 2 in the 1200 block of North Damen;
  • between 4 p.m. and 6 a.m. Oct. 3 to 4 in the 2500 block of North Francisco;
  • between 6:15 a.m. and 5:17 p.m. Oct. 11 in the 1200 block of North Milwaukee;
  • between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. Oct. 21 to 22 in the 1700 block of West Wabansia;
