Hundreds of stolen items from Lincoln Park home displayed

Chicago police officials have put hundreds of stolen items worth more than $500,000 on display at the Town Hall District police station hoping to find their way back to their owners.

The items were recovered from a Lincoln Park apartment recently after police executed search warrants and arrested Jicheng Liu, 32, who was charged with a felony for his role in the operation, and felony cyber-stalking, authorities said.

Liu is suspected of running an elaborate fencing operation and found truckloads of high-end, stolen merchandise, officials said.

Following a months-long joint investigation by the Chicago Police Department, U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Cook County state’s attorney’s office, Liu was arrested earlier this month after authorities executed a warrant on a home in the 1700 block of West Altgeld Street and confiscated truckloads of merchandise believed to have been stolen.

Anyone who has been the victim of a garage or vehicle burglary on the city's north side dating back to 2010 is encouraged to attend and identify the stolen items, police said.  Receipts and or proof of ownership will be required to claim property, police said.

Anyone who believes their items may have been stolen can go to the Town Hall District station, 850 West Addison St., to view the items from Monday, March 26 to Friday, March 30 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday people can go to the station from 8 a.m. to Noon, officials said.
