A Shorewood man apparently thought in early August that hiding his illicit goods in a sensitive area would fool Evergreen Park police. How surprised he must have been when, after a traffic stop, the eight bags of heroin he was holding started dropping from his shorts.
The summer is a time for lovers. One couple who met online and set up a date in Oak Lawn for late July didn't have a happy ending. These car-crossed lovers probably won't go the distance, since one accused the other of vehicle theft.
A fast-food employee in Tinley Park who wanted it his way got mouthful from a coworker. The tiff supposedly started when a female employee at Burger King didn't like how a man who also works at the restaurant ordered a Whopper. Regardless of how it went down, this was one order that did not come with a smile.
There are unwelcome guests and then there are unwelcome guests. If you're fortunate to get a polite one, like a Tinley Park woman did in early June, then it might not be such an unpleasant time. But (or should I say "butt?") saying "I'm sorry" doesn't make up for being nude.
June was quite the month for odd happenings. A maid cleaning up after a party in an Orland Park home was surprised to find the dessert she sampled had a bit of a kick. A couple of young men were ticketed after cops discovered they had baked pot brownies and left them out overnight.
A scary situation turned into a close call for a Chicago Heights man who narrowly avoided a bullet to the brain. Hoodlums had targeted him for a carjacking. When the driver refused to give up the car and sped away, one of the bad guys started shooting at the car. It wasn't until later that the man discovered a head rest caught one of the bullets.
