BUCKTOWN — Three armed carjackers may have been arrested a few hours after they stole a 2018 Range Rover from a Bucktown couple as they were leaving their garage Friday morning, according to police.
The car — stolen at about 9:08 a.m. Friday in the 1700 block of North Wolcott Avenue — was recovered with occupants in it, according to Officer Jessica Rocco, a Chicago Police spokeswoman. But Rocco could not confirm that the men found in the recovered car this afternoon were the same men involved in the morning carjacking.
“We are waiting to learn more from the detectives,” Rocco told Block Club Chicago.
The incident was partially captured by a surveillance camera.
In the one-minute video posted on YouTube, three men jump out of a Toyota Prius in an alley, one at a time, each with a gun pointed.
They run to somewhere out of view from the camera, and one of the men returns about 45 seconds later with a shopping bag in his hand.
The second man comes back into view holding belongings he was not carrying seconds earlier.
The third man does not reappear in the video.
Police said a man was taking out the garbage while a woman was sitting in their 2018 Range Rover. The woman was driving out of the family’s garage as the offenders’ vehicle showed up in the alley.
Police said a wallet, purse and phones were stolen, along with the car.
