For two years in the late 1950s, an almost nightly series of burglaries cleaned out homes and businesses across Chicago's North Side. The robbers cracked safes, stole jewelry, made off with store merchandise, and emptied houses of expensive furniture. But this wasn't the work of the city's crime syndicates or ordinary street gangs: the heists were all planned by a group of uniformed Chicago Police.
