CHICAGO – Burglars who struck two police officers’ Southwest Side homes in two separate incidents Friday made off with police equipment — including a gun, police badge and bullet proof vest, police said.

In the first incident, which occurred between 4:30 a.m. and 7 a.m., thieves broke into an officer’s home and took gun, police star, uniform and a bullet proof vest, police said.

Shortly afterward, in a separate incident police think occurred sometime between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., thieves broke into a vehicle in an officer’s garage and took a uniform shirt, nameplate, handcuffs and a stereo, police said. The vehicle was not a police squad car.

No suspects are in custody Sunday morning.
