I probably should have known better, but I didn’t think things like this actually happened.
WICKER PARK — The owner of a Division Street bar got an unpleasant but slightly comical surprise when an apparent burglar managed to remove a lock on the bar’s front door — but couldn’t get in because he was pulling the unlocked door instead of pushing it.
Surveillance video from the bar shows a man twisting and prying a lock at The Shambles and dislodging a safety guard doorstop after seven minutes of work early Friday. Nonetheless, he failed to get in after aggressively pulling the door repeatedly. A sticker on the outside of the door reads “PUSH.”
Police are still looking for their suspect, who shouldn’t be overly difficult to keep in custody once captured, I imagine.
