Police: 3 Suspicious Incidents, 2 Burglaries

Police responded to a home after a security alarm went off, but jewelry was stolen before their arrival.

The following reports were provided by the Glenview Police Department.

Suspicious Incidents

On Feb. 5, a resident on the 1800 block of West Ridgewood Ln. reported a man came to their home, and started ringing the doorbell and peering through the home’s front windows, according to police. He was then seen pacing back and forth in the street near the home, police say.

That day, a resident on the 200 block of Fernwood Ln. reported a man came to their home, opened the screen door, and knocked on the exterior door several times, according to police. The homeowner did not know why the person would be at their home, police say.

On Feb. 6, a resident on the 2100 block of Harrison St. reported two men came to their residence and attempted to gain entry by telling them they needed to check the home’s gas meter, according to police. The men left after being denied entry, police say.

Burglary

On Feb. 7, officers responded to an alarm at a residence on the 2400 block of Halina Dr. and found the rear door at the home had been forced open, police say. One of the bedrooms had been ransacked and jewelry was taken, according to police. 

On Feb. 8, the property manager for a vacant business on the 1600 block of Milwaukee Ave. reported someone burglarized the property, according to police. Entry was made by smashing the glass entry door and an electrical saw was taken, police say. Reported loss is $900.00.

Retail Theft

On Feb. 5, an employee of a business on the 2700 block of Pfingsten Rd. reported a man came into the store and loaded several bottles of alcohol, worth about $63.00, into a shopping basket and left the store without paying, according to police.

Solution.... Yell. "Halt". 3 times. Then shoot to kill...

b garrett, If you are such a brave soul, why don't you train for the police department or the armed forces. I suspect that you couldn't make the cut, because you couldn't pass the physical or mental tests. Go away...

I can't speak for b garrett but I can and I have. The police are a subscription service for us. I am not wasting time or getting killed trying to call and wait for the cops. They can come collect and catalog what's left of the intruders after I am done.

Another tough guy with illusions of "Red Dawn". You have a better chance of killing a family member or yourself with your own gun than killing an intruder (especially in Glenview). I hope there will be mental health screening for gun purchases. I bet you couldn't pass that test.

Sure I could. I am not a Prozac soaked, snivelling trust fund baby waiting for the government to come to my rescue like you are. The reason you're able to flap off at the mouth so freely is because of people who have served in the military with guns by the way. Have your trust fund administrator explain it to you one day when you take a break from worshipping Obozo.

I am a retired commander. USN. I passed the tests.....

I have passed all the tests as well, and would pass a mental evaluation. These are the big mouth mopes that have pedigrees bought by daddy, a monthly check from grandpa and a title that tries to hide it. (They're all artists, photographers, IT consultants, etc.) It's all spelled the same way: TRUST FUND BABIES. Thank you for your service Cmdr. Garrett. I am sorry you have to witness these degenerates cause such a rapid degradation of the society you worked so hard to protect.

Remember in an emergency police are only minutes away!

Maybe Richard's fear is that he couldn't make the cut, so he projects those feeling on everyone else
