Police: Criminal Trespass Reported, Drug Possession Charges

Also featured in this week's blotter, four vehicular burglaries since Jan. 1.

The following reports were provided by the Glenview Police Department. Arrests and charges are accusations and do not indicate guilt. 

Criminal Trespass

On Jan. 1, an employee of a restaurant on the 1800 block of Tower Dr. reported an intoxicated man came into the business and attempted to order alcohol, according to police. When he was denied alcohol, the man became belligerent and dumped food on himself, the police report says. After several requests the male left and was locked out, but started pounding on the door in an attempt to reenter, according to police. 

Vehicular Burglaries

On Jan. 1, a resident on the 3200 block of Ronald Rd. reported someone entered their unlocked vehicle while it was parked at their residence and stole a tote bag, jacket and other miscellaneous items, according to police. Estimated loss is $10.00. 

On Jan. 2, a resident on the 400 block of Warren Rd. reported someone entered their unlocked vehicle while it was parked at their residence and stole $2.00 in change and a flood light, according to police. Reported loss is $27.00.

On Jan. 4, a resident on the 300 block of Spruce Dr. reported someone entered two of their family’s vehicles that were parked in the driveway, according to police. One vehicle was unlocked the other was locked, but method of entry to the locked vehicle is not known, police say. A GPS unit worth about $300.00 was taken, according to police. 

On Jan. 4, someone reported their unlocked car was burglarized while parked on the 1900 block of Ivy Ln, according to police. Clothing worth about $70.00 was taken, police say.

Have we gotten to the point where it is necessary to say "police say" or "according to police" after every single sentence? A little absurd isn't it? A simple disclaimer - which is already printed - about the legal nature of guilt determination is all that is required.

Thanks for the great question, Billy. It's standard journalistic practice to attribute anything that we can't verify as fact ourselves. We trust the police provide reliable information and we print their blotters to keep residents safe and aware of current events. The attribution may seem like overkill, but we want to be clear with readers where we get our information, as well as making it clear to the people mentioned in the blotter that the information is from police and not from our own observations.

All due respect, but "seem" like overkill? It is overkill! These police blotters detail exactly what they are right at the onset. It isn't necessary to then trip over oneself every two seconds to point out that the police provided this information. I will also point out that to including "police say" after each entry (or repeatedly within the same entry) is something entirely new. I understand the worries over liability and all, but why the change now? It's obviously deliberate. Thanks for your reply, Stan,

Just to clarify: when I say "new", I mean "new" to these blotters (in the past, the disclaimer sufficed). Journalists have long been using the equivalent terms "allegedly" and "supposed" over liability concerns.
