Ald. Deb Mell’s 33rd Ward of­fice in the Al­bany Park neigh­bor­hood was burglarized early Mon­day on the North­west Side, po­lice said.

About 3: 25 a. m., the male sus­pect broke in through a glass pane front door at the ward of­fice at 3001 W. Irv­ing Park, au­thor­i­ties said.

The thief threw a chunk of con­crete to shat­ter the glass.

“It doesn’t feel great, but it hap­pens,” Mell said at her of­fice later Mon­day.

A man who lives nearby and was clean­ing the of­fice early Mon­day star­tled the thief, who ran off with a com­puter tablet, Mell said. The tablet is left in the front win­dow of the of­fice to dis­play Bus Tracker in­for­ma­tion for the nearby No. 80 bus stop, Mell said.

No one was in cus­tody early Mon­day as Area North de­tec­tives in­ves­ti­gated.
