At least one person was injured in the 3:55AM raid, which broke up when offenders saw that cops had arrived.
But the damage had already been done at the store, which is located on the corner of Halsted and Addison—just a half-block from the 19th district police headquarters.
Employees were working hard to restock the store’s shelves when we visited at sunrise. The candy aisle appeared to be particularly hard hit, with huge boxes of Butterfingers, Starburst, and other sweets stripped bare. Racks of beef jerky and bagged snacks had been reduced to barren pegboard.
