Some crimes aren’t that easy to solve.
On February 13th at about 6 p.m., the police were called to the Jewel on 103rd Street for a theft complaint.
A shopper said that she had been shopping for about an hour and when she arrived at the register, she realized her wallet was missing from her purse. A short time later, her bank notified her that a credit card had been used at Target for $1,000.
The bank cancelled the credit card and a blank check that was in the wallet.
On February 15th at about 10 p.m., the Oak Lawn police were called to an Oak Lawn residence for a report of a burglary to a motor vehicle.
The homeowner didn’t hear anyone break the window of the car while it was parked outside but when he checked on the car, the window had been broken. The unknown offender also damaged the rear seat latch which accessed the trunk space. When the homeowner found the damage he notified the police.
Earlier in the night, the homeowner had seen a black female wearing a red scarf looking up his driveway. He didn’t call the police but he also didn’t recognize who she was or what she was doing at the time.
The police evidence technician checked for evidence that may have been left behind by the offender.
A Blue Island woman was shopping at the Jewel at 95th and Pulaski one day later at about 1:15 p.m. She placed her purse in her shopping cart and while shopping apparently turned away to grab some items off the shelf. Someone snatched a wallet that was in the purse, which she realized when she tried to pay for her groceries.
On that same day, about an hour later, the police were dispatched to the Walgreen’s on 95th and Melvina for a retail theft. Employees at the store claimed that two black females entered the business and stole 24 containers of Enfamil baby formula.
The two women entered a black Mercedes SUV and were seen traveling northbound. The police were unable to locate the women.
