Chicago man accused of Lincoln Park burglaries

February 13, 2014|By Rachel Cromidas, @rachelcromidas | RedEye

A Chicago man on parole for burglary was arrested Wednesday afternoon after police accused him of three new counts of felony residential burglary.

Police officers saw Arthur Nielsen, 34, of the 9100 block of South Perry Avenue, enter a three-flat apartment building on North Geneva Terrace shortly after 2 p.m. without authorization to do so, according to police officials. A statement released by police said Nielsen was carrying burglary tools.

Nielsen allegedly entered two separate residences in that building without authorization, the police statement said, before officers from the Near North Side and the Town Hall police districts, which encompass parts of Lakeview, Lincoln Park and Old Town, arrested him.

Nielsen is scheduled to appear at the Cook County Criminal Courthouse's Central Bond Court on Thursday afternoon.
