Business Owner Slapped in Face By Competitor

In a separate incident, a business was bilked out of $200 in a 'quick-change scam.'

The following information is from the Glenview Police Department. An arrest is not an indication of guilt.

Suspicious Incident

A resident reported a woman called them and stated they were with the government and the resident received a $9,200 grant for being a good citizen. The caller stated the resident would need to call a certain number to retrieve the money.
