Thief Smashes Front Door Of Halal Guys Restaurant On Near North Side To Steal Money From Cash Register

CHICAGO (CBS)-- A fast food restaurant was targeted in a burglary on the Near North Side early Wednesday morning.

Police said the front door was shattered at the Halal Guys restaurant, located at 49 West Division Street, around 5 a.m.

Police said the offender took an unknown amount of money from the cash register and ran away. The suspect can be seen on surveillance video.

One resident believes more police and metal health resources will help stop the cycle of thefts.

"Most of the problems in the neighborhood are regarding the organize retail theft that connects the gang members to the people stealing for drugs, selling it to the gang member, buying drugs from the gang member, and keeping those gang members and that activity entrenched in our neighborhood," said Mel Jones.

No arrests have been made.

Police are investigating.
