Classic

  • A Logan Square man is trying to figure out how his bike was stolen right from under his nose - and the noses of Shakespeare District police officers.

    Adam Wisneski, 31, went to the police station Friday night around 9 p.m. to report his iPhone stolen. He had lost it on an "L" train about a month ago, he said, and was recently contacted by someone who purchased the phone, asking for its access code.

    He rode his bike, a black SE Lager, to the police station, 2150 N. California Ave., but left his lock at home.

    Wisneski asked officers if it was OK if he left it in the foyer of the station. When they said it was OK, he filed the police report, which he said took about 30 minutes.

    That's when the unthinkable happened.

    "I turned around and my bike was gone," Wisneski said. "I thought it was a joke. I thought someone was messing with me."

Once again proving that our station designs pretty much suck. Anyone wanders in, anyone wanders out, and understaffed, unsecured areas invite anyone to take what isn't nailed down.

OT: And, in other Logan Square humor/news, today Alderman Rey Colon was found innocent of DUI, though guilty on lesser charges (expired d/l and others).

Seriously.

At least this Hipster didn't have to worry about his skinny jeans getting caught in the chain on the ride back to his $1400/month Logan Square studio apartment.

Nothing is safe in a police station: not the parking lots where traffic violators steal back their soon-to-be-towed vehicles, the desk, the locker rooms (who really vets those people contracted to clean up?), especially the lobbies. . . .

To top it off, Chicago is full of needy people struggling to find food and clothing. No wonder stuff goes missing.

"Once again proving..." that you should always lock your bike.

I think all the officers in the station were enjoying their Starbucks break. You know that delicious liquid puts you in a nirvana-like state.

Now, kees me you Fool!!!!

This is the third high-end trendybike theft that has made the news.

Poor person who needs their old Schwinn to go to the store doesn't exist & never has.

The disco lights on the ceiling of 014 should be stolen.

If you have been in 14 it is all glass, eye could have been on the bike at all times.

Maybe the Bike wasn't really 'stolen'.

It *could be* that some poor citizen -- say a recent robbery victim -- was leaving the station, saw the Bike standing there unlocked, and thought it was part of Tiny Dancer's 'Bike Share Program'. And having no money from the robbery, he *borrowed it* so he could ride home instead of walking.

That is feasible isn't it?

Even in Chicago?

Oh hell......
.....Bwaaahahaha!

Heads up second city cop. An officers personal car had his wheel fall off when his wife was driving his truck on the highway. All this was due to someone unscrewing his lug nuts. this officer works out of 25. two of the lugs had wheel locks on them. so whoever loosened the lugs had wheel lock keys. we were thinking its the tow drivers. several squad cars had loosened lugs before. I personally had a squad with loosened lug nuts. guys need to be aware of whats going on in the lots and especially when tow drivers are back in the lot. just a heads up to the readers.

Check your local Divy bike stations. Someone that bonded out most likely borrowed it and parked it in a Divy park station when he arrived to his residence

According to his facebook, the victim is a videographer for the Obama campaign/OFA, so I'd say this falls under the category of poetic justice.

Understaffed desks?? Seriously?? It is probably more like the crab asses that work the desk refused to look up when they heard the doors open because they will miss an important part of whatever Netflixs movie or series they are watching. Or maybe whatever they were shopping for online was on sale and they didn't want to miss out in a great bargain.

This brings up a question in my mind that maybe some CPD officer can share an opinion on.

Online advice is that, when you buy or sell something on Craigslist (like a laptop), it is a good idea to meet your counterparty at a police station lobby. The idea being you're unlikely to get mugged, thieves are unlikely to bring stolen merchandise in front of the cameras, etc.

Is it a good idea, or is some other venue even better?

Been doing that for a while now.
