Updated: August 6, 2012 11:30AM
The following incidents were listed among the official reports of the Glencoe Police Department. Readers are reminded that an arrest does not constitute a finding of guilt. Only a court of law can make that determination. All court appearances are at the courthouse at 5600 Old Orchard Road, Skokie, unless otherwise noted.
A portable toilet was found dumped over at Central School, 620 Greenwood Ave., shortly after midnight Monday morning. The same officer who noticed that saw that a smiley-face was drawn, and a machine gun and a bomb stenciled, on the wall of the small building north of the school’s tennis courts that Glencoe Youth Services rents from District 35. Graffiti removal was estimated at $300. A short distance away, in the alley behind the 300 block of Park Avenue, the same officer noted two green dollar signs spray-painted on a plastic storage unit.
A $6,500 bronze horse statue was reported missing from a home in the 1100 block of Sheridan Road June 24. The tabletop Carl Dahl statue was last seen June 9. Several workers had been in the house, according to the complainant.
A resident of the 100 block of Glenwood Avenue reported Friday that her credit card number had been stolen, and used to try to buy six items online. The thief was foiled, however, due to not knowing the card’s expiration date. The thief had attempted to buy merchandize for shipment to New Jersey. The card was canceled after the attempted thefts.
A passenger in a car pulled over on a traffic stop June 28th was ticketed for alleged marijuana possession. Lorena Aguilar, 2740 Harvey Ave., Berwyn, was cited on her 24th birthday, after a police officer reported smelling marijuana. The car’s driver, pulled over at Sheridan Road and Hawthorn Lane for not having a working license-plate light, allegedly told the officer his passenger had been smoking, and she turned over what was left of what she had smoked.
A Winnetka driver and his Kenilworth passenger, both 19, were arrested Friday night after a speeding stop in the 300 block of South Avenue. Driver William C. DeLoach, of 1250 Sunset Road, was charged with speeding, transporting open alcohol, misdemeanor possession of alcohol and underage alcohol possession. John Curtis Matthews, 19, was charged with possession of marijuana and of drug paraphernalia as well as underage alcohol possession, all misdemeanors. Both posted $1,000 bond and are scheduled to appear in court Aug. 1.
Police ticketed nine landscapers for violation of the leaf-blower noise ordinance last week. At least two were also cited for landscaping without a Glencoe business license.
The morning of June 28 revealed that the halfway house concession stand at the Skokie Country Club, 500 Washington Ave., had been burglarized overnight.
