Hardwood Floors Stolen From Home

Also in this Glenview blotter, someone forgot their spouse's phone at a business on Valentine's Day and it went missing. Oops.

The following information is from the Glenview Police Department. An arrest does not indicate a conviction.

Residential Burglary

A complainant reported they bought a home in the 2600 block of Central Rd. They did a final walk through on Feb. 5 and when they returned on Feb. 17 they found someone removed all of the hardwood floors from the home. The estimated loss is $5,000.

Identity Theft

A resident reported they received a letter from a bank stating they saw suspicious activity on one of their credit cards. They called the bank and told them they did not have a credit card for the store that was referred to in the letter. They conducted a credit check and discovered several credit cards with various stores opened in their name using their previous address. 

Burglary (motor vehicle)

Someone entered their unlocked vehicle and stole $200 from a duffel bag, which was located on the front passenger seat, while the vehicle was parked in a parking lot in the 2500 block of Waukegan Rd. on Feb. 6 between 8:45 and 9:05 p.m.


Someone reported forgetting their spouse’s cell phone on a table at a business in the 2600 block of Navy Blvd. on Feb. 14. The phone was not recovered at the business. The estimated loss is $700.

Deceptive Practice

A resident reported that they wired a $2,016 check on Feb. 14 to purchase a vehicle they saw online. After sending the initial check they received an e-mail asking for an additional $1,500 for shipping fees.  They realized it was a scam and did not send the second check. 

Identity Theft

A resident received a letter Feb. 15 from a bank requesting more information for a newly opened checking account. The resident never attempted to open an account and learned the bank never activated the account due to the suspicious nature of the application. No loss occurred.

Identity Theft

A resident reported they received a bill on Feb. 17 from a company but they do not have an account with them. The bill was for the purchase of two new cell phones in their name. They contacted the company and canceled the account.
