In the suburbs, but that's not the strange part:
- Five Chicago teens were arrested Sunday and charged with burglarizing a northwest suburban video game store. Two of them were caught after trying to hitch a ride in a police car.
Norridge police received an anonymous call about 2:40 a.m. Sunday from a resident who heard glass breaking at Video Games Then and Now, 4351 N. Harlem Ave., Deputy Chief Jim Jobe said.
That's not what's odd. Check out where these jackasses were from:
- Ronald Pickett, 18, of 5205 W. Congress Parkway
- Michael Gonzalez, 18, of 1651 W. 17th St.
- and a 16-year-old, also from Chicago
- Juan Oropez, 18, of 939 N. Ashland Ave.,
- and Domonique Cunningham, 17, of 1519 W. 73rd St.
Quite the assortment of street addresses there coming together to burglarize a suburban video store. We can't imagine that they just met on a bus, or in a school or even at a church event. Back in the day, our neighborhood groups were just that - from the neighborhood. We didn't hang out with anyone who lived father than we could ride our bicycles. These kids are miles and tens of miles away from one another. What gives?
