Clark Street Car Break-Ins
Lead to Felony Arrest

The Chicago Police arrested Rayshay Moore for the burglary of a woman’s car on the 1900 block of North Clark Street. Moore was identified from footage retrieved from a nearby OEMC monitored camera. Two days after the burglary, on Oct. 4, police arrested Moore in the 400 block of North Evergreen. He remains in custody.

Because car break-ins are an issue on Clark Street, we have asked the Court Advocacy program to follow this case.

Please consider becoming a court advocate. These volunteers attend court to represent victims and the community, sending the message to defendants and the courts that we will not tolerate crime in our community.

Attending court is very interesting and you will join a committed group of volunteers. Please RSVP to attend to or call Officer Robinson at 312-742-5778 for more information.

Thank you to our 18th District Police and our Area Central Detectives, who solved this case.
