Two South Side chimps caught stealing fire plugs off the street

Two Chicago men face felony charges after they were caught trying to steal fire hydrants Saturday morning in the Gresham neighborhood, prosecutors said today.

Ned D. Carradine, 50, and Russell L. Mack, 51, each face criminal damage to government property and theft of government property charges in connection to the incident, which took place in the 8500 block of South Loomis Boulevard, according to Cook County court records.

Police responded to a theft in progress call and found Carradine, a South Shore resident, and Mack, of Longwood Manor, in the process of attempting to put one of the hydrants in a vehicle, according to court records.

The two already had “unauthorized control” of a second hydrants, court records state.

One hydrant had been disassembled to fit it into the vehicle, according to court records.

Carradine, of the 7400 block of South Merrill Avenue, and Mack, of the 9700 block of South Emerald Avenue, were each ordered release on their own recognizance Sunday at Cook County Bond Court.
