Philadelphia Police say that two Center City stores that had already been looted and subsequently boarded up amid unrest earlier this month were burglarized again early Saturday morning, 6/20. It happened around 5 a.m. along the 1600 block of Chestnut Street. Alarms were set off at both the Old Navy and Men's Warehouse stores. Police believe the burglars entered through the back of the stores and were able to get into the other next door. One person was arrested near 16th and Sansom Streets pushing a shopping cart full of stolen items. Police are searching for other suspects

A little over an hour earlier at 3:45 a.m., three people were taken into custody for breaking into the Champion store on the 1500 block of Walnut Street. A 35-year-old and 27-year-old man were caught leaving the store with merchandise. A 25-year-old woman was found behind the counter going through drawers. She told police that she was only taking mints. Her hands were full of mints, but she was also in possession of narcotics. Police are searching for other suspects

South Philadelphia neighbors and the group Stand Up South Philly spent Saturday cleaning up Marconi Plaza on South Broad Street after a week of clashes over the Christopher Columbus statue. That statue is now boarded up and is going through an Art Commission process to determine its fate. Anthony Giordano, organizer of the group, said, "We just want to send a positive message out to the community. Let's clean up, let's start to heal the neighborhoods and unite the neighborhoods."

Police are investigating a triple shooting in West Philadelphia on Saturday evening, 6/20. It happened around 7 p.m. on the 200 block of South Ithan Street. A 23-year-old man was shot once in his left arm. Another man was shot in the neck, shoulder, and elbow. A third man was shot in the lower back and left torso. All three were taken to Penn Presbyterian Hospital by private vehicle and are in stable condition. There have been no arrests.
