Report of Brandished Handgun Proves False

Two eggings were also reported in Glenview in the most recent police blotter.

The following information is from the Glenview Police Department. 

Disorderly Conduct

A complainant reported on March 29 at 6:30 p.m. that the driver of a Toyota mini-van cut them off in traffic and pointed a handgun at them as they drove south from the 1200 block of Milwaukee Ave. to Greenwood Road. Niles and Glenview officers located the mini-van. Investigating Officers determined the suspect did not have a handgun and the complainant possibly mistook a cellphone as a weapon. The suspect was released without charges.

Suspicious Incident 

An employee for the Glenview Park District reported on March 25 that someone stuck numerous aluminum tags on park benches located at Jackman Park, 1930 Prairie St. The tags had a sticky residue on them but were removed without damaging the benches.

Disorderly Conduct 

A resident of the 3000 block of Independence Ave. stated sometime overnight March 24 someone threw eggs at their vehicle, which was parked on the street in front of their home. The vehicle was not damaged.


A resident of the 2800 block of Independence Ave. reported March 25 three checks were stolen from their check book which was located in their bedroom. One of the checks was cashed for $287. 

Deceptive Practice

A resident of the 1400 block of Lehigh Ave. reported March 25 hiring an internet company to provide two year maintenance on their home computer. They received calls from different employees to send money to two different locations in India and China after the resident paid the initial contract fee. They received a call from their credit card company that two suspicious purchases were charged against their account. They feel the company gained access to their information through their computer and might be a scam.


On March 26 an employee for the construction site at 1020 Waukegan Rd. reported sometime overnight someone entered the construction site and stole several thousand dollars’ worth of tools. 

Criminal Damage to Property

A resident of the 1500 block of Monterey Dr. reported that between March 21 and 25, someone threw approximately 12 eggs at their home striking several windows, a door, gutter, and railing in front of the home. Some of the eggs may have permanently damaged the home. The estimated damage is over $500.

Burglary (motor vehicle)

A resident reported someone burglarized their vehicle while it was parked at the Glenview Post Office, 1400 Patriot Blvd., on March 25 or at their place of employment in the 3600 block of West Lake Ave., on March 26. The estimated loss is $250.

Would have been nice to find out exactly how an egg can permanently damage a home and cause more than $500 in damage?
