Seventy-five pieces of silverware worth a combined $5,400 were stolen from a Hinsdale home.
Four males stole seven bags of oranges and nine bags of Cheerios from an Evanston school by entering through an unlocked window.
A Niles family called police to say that their white Dodge Avenger had been hit while parked overnight. The front driver's side had been damaged and red paint had been transferred onto it.
A couple hours later, a Niles man waved down an officer and pointed out his red car had damage, including white paint transfer, and the white and orange light covers were broken. Also, small red pieces which framed the light were missing. He told police he parked his vehicle at 1 a.m. the previous night and just discovered the damage. Police said he at first denied striking the white vehicle, but later admitted he did it.
A Lake Bluff officer responded to a report of a truck pulling people on a sled in a parking lot. The officer issued a trespassing warning and advised the people to leave the property.
