Freezer of Dead Animals Broken Into, Stolen Toilet Brush

A look at unusual crimes in our Patch region this week.

Local police departments provided the following reports. In all incidents where an arrest occurred, a charge is merely an accusation and not evidence of guilt.

Police responded to a burglary at Skokie storage facility. According to the report, a toilet brush holder, a DVD of the television show Scrubs and other items were reported missing.

A women told Skokie police that she was working in the drive-thru line at a restaurant when a woman approached her and said, “You stupid b****! You gave my boyfriend an STD!” the report said.

The woman then allegedly threw a large chocolate shake at the Portillo’s employee. The shake hit the woman’s chest and splattered all over her, the report stated. A struggle between the two ensued, but employees broke up the scuffle. The woman who threw the shake fled the scene. No arrests were made.

Someone broke into the Glencoe Public Works facility and cut the lock on the large freezer-shed that public works uses to store deceased animals. Glencoe keeps dead animals like road kill frozen in the shed until they’re picked up and properly disposed of.  Police have yet to find the attempted burglar.

A 64-year-old from Winnetka was pulled over while driving in Glencoe. According to police, he was drinking a cup of Maker’s Mark whiskey while driving the car. He was charged with improper lane usage, a light violation and driving under the influence of alcohol.

Police reported a six-foot wooden fence was pulled from a Des Plaines front yard and thrown into a wooded area across the street. A dead end sign owned by the city was also pulled from the ground and thrown into the wooded area.

Harold: You should consider resuming your medication. Get back inside your house and quit telling the neighbor kids to get off your porch. You are the one that is out of touch, you old coot!

Are you getting ready to write some great jokes and humor about future murder cases? Since when is crime humorous? Got any good ones about rape? Another thing that isnt humorous is stupidity.

Stone should be sorry she wrote it, not that somebody else didnt like it. As expected, throws the negativity on the complainant. Usual journalistic technique from a dying occupation bereft of substance. Well, Emily, any MTV type jokes on the murder in Evanston?

There were no missing children. In fact some might make an argument that children wrote this article.
