Mayor Lori Lightfoot also attended the crime summit and appeared to pin partial blame for the thefts on business owners not taking enough precautions against the crimes.
His high-end exotic car dealership was targeted by armed smash-and-grab looters on Dec. 11, who stole watches worth millions of dollars in a matter of seconds.
“It’s frightening. It’s really frightening,” Forsyth said. “They ran off down the alley next to the church here, and you can see them put the bikes in their car – and they just drove off.”
Five bikes total were stolen, coming out to about $15,000, and the cost to repair a broken window for the second time was $1,000.
