You Can’t Stay in the Shed
Oak Lawn Police were called to the Home Depot Store at 9 a.m. on the 19th of March because a man was inside a small shed on the parking lot. Someone had tried to enter the sheds in the past and damaged the padlocks and doors while trying to gain entry. The store manager claimed that he had told the man, Richard Galvin, that he could not be inside the shed. The police officer on the scene claimed that when he arrived, Galvin was sitting in one of the sheds. Galvin had been warned a week earlier and was arrested for criminal trespass to property. During the trip to the police station and during processing, Galvin allegedly called the officer and other employees at the station names such as “f…stick”, “Nword”, and “Sp..k”. He allegedly stated, “I have a gun in my pocket. No, I don’t because if I did I would have capped your ass.” Galvin is a 48 year old white male, with a Chicago address.
Animal Kingdom in Oak Lawn
Police officers were dispatched to a home in the 101st block of Tripp Avenue for an animal protection complaint. The complaint was that the residents of the home had about 16 dogs. The concern expressed by the complaining witness was that Oak Lawn limits the number of dogs to a household to three and that the residents may be breeding the dogs. The officer couldn’t locate the owner and the animal control officer was contacted for further action.
