Flossmoor police reports, Dec. 26-27
WEDNESDAY, DEC. 27
She 'Brings' Car Damage
A car owner told police that a 23-year-old Chicago Heights woman may have scratched her car with a hammer while it was parked in 3000 block of Kathleen Lane on Dec. 26 around 1 a.m.
The owner said she was inside her friend’s house when her car alarm went off but didn’t find the scratches until later. According to police, her friend went outside to investigate and warned the Chicago Heights woman to leave or she’d call police.
A day later the car owner complained to police of receiving threatening text messages from the Chicago Heights woman. In part, according to police, one of them read: “BRING IT U GO HARD IM GOING EVEN HARDER.”
The car owner signed a complaint for criminal damage to property, but no arrest had been made as of Thursday morning.
TUESDAY, DEC. 26
Underage Drinking, Garbage Tipping
Two Flossmoor boys, aged 17 and 16, were cited for underage drinking and disorderly conduct after knocking over garbage cans in the 700 block of Burns Avenue around 11 p.m. A resident of the block chased and stopped the 17-year-old boy, pinning him to the ground until police arrived. Two other boys managed to get away, though the 16 year old later turned himself in at the police station with his father, police said. He told officers he had been drinking beers with friends, but denied knocking the garbage cans.
The first boy was charged with disorderly conduct and possession of alcohol by consumption. The second was charged with possession of alcohol by consumption.
Stolen Diamond Necklaces
An elderly woman on Vollmer Road told police two diamond necklaces valued at $300 a piece were stolen between Dec. 20 and Dec. 25. On the morning of Dec. 23, two men from an air-duct cleaning company came out to the house and spent nearly two hours unsupervised and separated, she said. Although their advertisement in a local paper offered duct cleanings for $59, the men offered an estimate for $2,305, she told police. When she refused, they left her a bill for services for $209, according to police.
One man was described as white, in his mid-30s, about 6-feet tall, with medium build and brown hair. The other as white, about 5-feet, 7-inches tall, with small build and brown hair. The woman gave police the name of the cleaning company. No arrest had been made as of Thursday morning.
The woman told police she did not suspect the other two people—her housekeepers—who visited her home that day.
