Lost property: A 39-year-old woman who lives on the 10000 block of Falk Road lost her driver’s license while she was traveling to Illinois for Thanksgiving. She reached out to the Illinois Secretary of State and in order to rent a car she needed a police report.
Motor vehicle theft: At 8:32 a.m. a 54-year-old woman living on the 100 block of Harbor Square Loop reported that her 2007 Chevrolet was stolen. The woman was a victim of a car prowl on Nov. 4 that netted her car keys. The car was parked in a secured parking garage that only could be entered by knowing an electronic fob. The woman had re-keyed the car’s ignition but not the door locks. BIPD informed the woman they had recovered her vehicle at 1 a.m. Nov. 26.
Criminal trespass in the second degree: A 51-year-old woman living on the 100 block of Wallace Way reported that sometime between 9 p.m. and midnight that she had heard noises in her backyard of someone trying to open her backyard gate. The gate is not secured by a lock but by a bungee cord to keep the door closed. When the woman went downstairs to investigate what caused the noises she found a young white male wearing either a dark gray or navy blue hoodie sweatshirt standing at her back door. The young man had what appeared to be a small metal object in his hand, possibly a key to her home. Before the man could enter her home, the woman yelled at the man and banged on the window, which startled the man and caused him to flee in an unknown direction.
Suspicious incident/investigation: A male subject, whose age wasn’t listed in the report, was asked to leave his current residence when the woman who owned the home was hospitalized and expected to remain in the hospital for an extended period. The man became upset when the homeowner’s sister told him that he needed to move out. The man then started sending the sister text messages with photos of damage to the house that he said was caused by someone breaking into the house when he wasn’t there. The sister said the man was a drunk and owned a gun, and that she required 24/7 police protection from the man. The officer said 24/7 protection couldn’t be given due to the size of the BIPD force, but night patrols would be added in front of her home.
Theft in the third degree: A 70-year-old woman living on the 7000 block of Hidden Cove reported on Nov. 22 that two packages delivered to her home at 2:58 p.m. were missing. The packages included Roselle Abramowitz-brand clothing made by the artist valued at $565 for the woman’s business. In addition to the clothing, the theft also included jewelry, bags and accessories.
