Flossmoor Police Investigating Recent Home Break-Ins

Police are increasing patrols in this Flossmoor neighborhood after two potentially related home burglaries occurred last week.

Flossmoor police are on the lookout for the cuplrit or cuplrits behind two recent home burglies, according to a release from the department.

The fist break-in was on the 1300 block of Dartmouth Rd. between 8 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. on Jan. 11, police say. Nobody was home when the burglar(s) stole electronics and personal items, according to the release. 

Police say a potentially related burglary happened on the 2000 block of Oxford Court on Jan. 15, also between 8 a.m. and 8:30 a.m.—two blocks away from the other break-in. Nobody was home during the time of the burglary.

Flossmoor police say they've beefed up patrol in these areas. If you or someone you know has any information related to the burglaries call Flossmoor's Investifations Division at 708.957.4500.

There was an attempted break in at our home on oakmont the week between Christmas & New years as well. They weren't able to get in,and because we hadn't used the back door in 3 or4 days we aren't sure what day it was exactly, but it's still unnerving none the less.

"Beefed up patrols" that's odd, I live on Dartmouth and haven't seen any police patrols... One more thing... I am subscribed to the Flossmoor E- Cop bulletin and have to say that it's a bit discouraging that you get a notification a week AFTER the incidents... Wouldn't it make sense to alert residents as soon as the burglaries occurred so we can be on alert and possibly prevent any other indiscretions. Just a thought.

Travis, I don't understand your complaint. My Flossmoor E-Cop Bulletin was dated Thursday, January 24th at 8:30:20 pm. It reported a burglary between the hours of 5:45 and 8:30 p.m. on January 24th, 2013. That's a "delay" of 20 seconds. This isn't the movie Minority Report, with Pre-Cogs staffing a Precrime unit. How much more timely could the alert have been?

Nick- I was referring to the E-Cop notification that was sent for the First incidents that took place on Dartmouth Rd. and Oxford Ct. Not the the second one that referred to the Cambridge theft. I do agree with you on the second one.... It was very timely. I have also noticed that the patrols have increased... Nice to see.

Thanks. I see now. Perhaps they're refining their algorithm as to what and when they report. I looked back at my last few alerts and 11/9 reported the 11/8 armed robbery on Princeton Road, 12/3 reported the 12/3 suspicious vehicle on Marston Lane, 12/5 reported the 12/5 package stealer on Wallace, but the 12/16 reported both the 12/15 and the 12/11 burglaries on Dartmouth and Oxford. I guess they haven't determined whether they're going to report every incident or only when it looks like a pattern is developing.
