A man is expected to appear in bond court later today, in connection to a string of break-ins of businesses on the North Side.

38-year-old Devalia Brown, of the 9300 block of South Jeffery, was charged with four counts of burglary.

Police said officers first responded to an alarm that had gone off in a Sprint store located in a shopping center  in the 2000 block of Clybourn Avenue early Saturday morning.

Officers found Sprint, Palm Beach Tan, and Supercuts had all been broken into, along with Dirk’s Fish & Gourmet.

“My front window was smashed in, apparently there was a little string of break-ins down the street,” Dirk Fucik said, Owner of Dirk’s Fish & Gourmet. “Here, they caught the guy and found my laptop in his car with my name on it.”

Brown was later arrested, and the items taken from the stores were returned.

    @White GIrl
    I m agree with you but tell me please can you count how many crimes are doing afro-americans and mexicans and how many crimes are doing White people (Europeans).
    I m sure that white are doing also o lot of crime . BUT if i count i think that just more than Half of CRIME in UNITED STATES are doing BLACK people.
    So i dont care about color but this kind of people who are doing crimes and robbery the most of them are BLACK and MEXICANS.
    THIS IS THE REALITY and we dont have to cover this, this is the TRUE.
    The black people need EDUCATION , FAMILY EDUCATION to become WELL-EDUCATED instead of staing at the corner and sell cocaine they need to study and to integrate in our society.
