A 27-year-old of the first block of North Lockwood Avenue in the Austin neighborhood of Chicago, was arrested for criminal trespass to a building in the 700 block of Lake Street at 10:43 a.m. on March 10 after he was warned previously not to return. He was transported to the station and released on an I-Bond.
A residence in the 1200 block of North Taylor Avenue was burglarized sometime between 1 p.m. on March 3 and 5 p.m. on March 6. The burglar gained entry by unknown means and stole a microwave, bed spread, knife set, TV stand, bathroom rug, shower curtain and bath towels. The estimated loss was $200.
A woman was seen by the store manager at Trader Joe's, 483 N. Harlem Ave., stealing a bag of frozen mandarin chicken and three containers of lettuce at 2:30 p.m. on March 6. She put the items into the bag and left the store without paying. She was last seen running northbound on Harlem Avenue. The estimated loss was $25.
Retail theft arrest
A 36-year-old man from Ravenna, Ohio was seen leaving the Jewel Foods, 7525 W. Lake St., and concealing stolen merchandise at 2:45 p.m. on March 2. He was approached by a River Forest Police Department plainclothes tactical officer. When the officer stopped the man, several boxes of Prilosec OTC fell to the ground. He later admitted to stealing several items from the store worth a total value of $105. He was arrested and charged with misdemeanor retail theft.
These items, obtained from the Oak Park and River Forest police departments, came from reports, March 2-11, and represent a portion of the incidents to which police responded. Anyone named in these reports has only been charged with a crime and cases have not yet been adjudicated. We report the race of a suspect only when a serious crime has been committed, the suspect is still at large, and police have provided us with a detailed physical description of the suspect as they seek the public's help in making an arrest.
