Lindenwood Park Crimes & Happenings Report for the Week of April 14th
Incident: Stealing from a Motor Vehicle           
Neighborhood: Lindenwood Park
Location: 67xx Plainview  
Date: 4/12/14 to 4/15/14 
Summary: Victim states during the dates and times indicated, person(s) unknown stole the listed property from his unlocked vehicle while it was parked outside of his residence. There was a delay in reporting because he did not think he needed to report it until advised to do so by his neighbor who is an officer.
Incident: Theft of Property/Services O/$500.00          
Neighborhood: Lindenwood Park
Location: 66xx Arsenal  
Date: 4/17/14  
Summary: Victim Norma M., who is blind, stated she was at home between the indicated date and times.  Before going to bed, she closed the rear bedroom door and placed her purse on the floor in the front room where she sleeps.  Victim woke up at approximately one hour after going to sleep to use the restroom.  Victim discovered while enroute to the restroom, the rear bedroom door was open.  It was not the way she had left it. 
Victim returned to the front room and checked her purse where she had placed it on the floor .  She noticed that her Bank America debit card, and $40.00 in US currency were missing from it. 
Victim believes her adopted daughter, who has been identified as a habitual runaway, came home and opened the rear window and later returned.  I checked the rear window and it was closed but unlocked.  Victim advised me she had a wooden stick wedge against the window to secure the window. The daughter has been reported missing on 3/30/14. An investigation to locate any witness (es) or suspect (s) was unsuccessful.




Incident: Burglary 2nd (Garage)          
Neighborhood: Lindenwood Park
Location: 60xx Juniata  
Date: 4/5/14 to 4/18/14 
Summary: District Two Officers received a call for a “Burglary” at 60xx Juniata.  Upon arrival they were met by the victim who informed them of the following: 
Victim stated she was last in her garage approximately two weeks prior to the date this report was taken.  On April 18 at approximately 9:30 a.m. she entered her garage in order to retrieve a rake and observed the contents of the garage to have been ransacked.  She stated further that the side door to her garage was locked and secured as well as the overhead garage door.
An inventory of the contents of the garage revealed a stroller, a tent, a chainsaw, a patio table w/chairs and miscellaneous tools to be missing. Victim stated she cleaned the garage and moved all of the property that had been disturbed after she observed the ransacked state.
I observed the contents of the garage to be in an orderly fashion.  I did not observe any signs of forced entry at any window or door.  Victim stated she is the only person who has access to the garage door opener and key to the side door.  A point of entry was not able to be determined.
ETU was not contacted due to the scene having been cleaned by the victim.


Incident: Stealing U/$150.00           
Neighborhood: Lindenwood Park
Location: 32xx Hampton, U Gas 
Date: 4/18/14 
On April 19, 2013, store manager Lenny P. was reviewing the surveillance footage from the night prior to determine if liquor was stolen from the business during the overnight hours. Upon reviewing the footage, he observed a black female take a bottle of Hennessy Liquor off the shelf and place it inside of her purse. The female proceeded to the cashier counter where she paid for other merchandise and gas using a `Telecheck.` The female did not pay for the bottle of Hennessy as it remained inside of her purse. The unidentified female passed all points of purchase and exited the gas station driving a grey Chevy Impala, bearing IL license plate number R211591. It should be noted `Telecheck` is an electronic check system used by `U` Gas wherein the customer can present a blank check which is ran through the `Telecheck` system to determine if they can accept the check for the indicated amount. The
cashier did not verify the identity of the female and the check endorser is not documented in the `Telecheck` transaction receipt which is kept on file by `U` Gas personnel. The aforementioned vehicle bearing IL license plate number R211591 is registered to Nakia H. with an Illinois address. At this time, I am unable to verify the identity of Nakia H., but it should be noted Nakia H. did receive a traffic ticket in the Frontenac jurisdiction on April 17, 2013 while driving the mentioned vehicle. A copy of the surveillance footage was seized and packaged as evidence.

IL license plate number R211591 was entered as wanted for “Stealing under $150″.
