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 Glencoe resident, 63, told police Friday that upon checking his MasterCard bill, he found two charges against his credit card number that he had not made. A charge of $7,569 had been made July 18, and another for $4,820 six days later — both in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
A resident of the 500 block of Jackson Avenue reported several pieces of jewelry were missing from their usual place in the master bedroom closet on Aug. 14. Total loss was unknown pending the assessment of what was stolen and what was borrowed by family members. A cleaning crew working there in recent days is under suspicion.
A Bartlett man was charged late Aug. 15 with driving under the influence of alcohol, after a police officer reportedly heard his tires screech. The man was seen as he cut off another driver turning from southbound Green Bay Road to westbound Lake-Cook Road.
Jeffrey Allen Wilson, Jr., 27, of 2007 Woodhaven Drive, was also charged with driving uninsured, the tire screeching, and possession of drug paraphernalia, after a pipe of the kind typically used for marijuana was allegedly found in the car. He posted 10 percent of $3,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 19.
A Winnetka man was ticketed Aug. 15 for misrepresentation of age after he allegedly tried to buy liquor at 7-Eleven, 107 Green Bay Road. Andrew J. O’Conor, 20, of 164 Woodland Ave., reportedly used a Connecticut license in another person’s name.
A Winnetka man was arrested Aug. 19 under suspiscion of driving on a suspended license, excessive exhaust noise and improper display of registration. His car’s front license plate was bent and hanging.
Hunter Albert Harrison’s 1998 Honda Civic was towed and stored after the arrest, and the large green parrot inside the car was caged pending his release.
Harrison, of 76 Indian Hill Drive, was released on a $1,500 recognizance bond, and is scheduled for a Sept. 19 court appearance.
Des Plains-based Angel’s Landscaping was cited Friday for violating Glencoe‘s seasonal ban on gas leaf blowers at a client’s home in the 100 block of Hawthorn Avenue.

Douglas O. Weidman, 66, of 583 Dundee Road, was ticketed Aug. 17 for allegedly violating Glencoe’s noise ordinance, as a dog was heard barking for a long period of time on his property, and he could not be reached by telephone or in person.
Police checked out new reported cougar sightings Aug. 13 in the 200 block of Scott Avenue, and Aug. 17 crossing the street at Vernon and Monroe avenues. Just as with earlier sightings at locations including Dell Place Beach and above Glencoe Beach, no defining paw prints were found.
Also Aug. 13, a reportedly mangy fox took up four hours residence in a yard in the 3400 block of Oakdale Avenue, similar to other recent sightings of a fox or coyote with the skin disease in Winnetka.
