RPD-Arrest and Thank you.

Riverside Residents,

I wanted to inform you that this past week the Riverside Police Department made an arrest of two adult individuals from Cicero for several garage and car burglaries. The suspects were taken into custody in the 300 block of Herrick Road at 1:27 a.m. They were observed to be acting suspiciously as they were walking in the area dressed completely in black with hoodies tied around their faces. This area was under extra patrol as we had been experiencing garage burglaries and thefts from vehicles in that area.

When the officers made the arrest, they were able to clear several other burglaries including ones that occurred in the 300 block Herrick, 300 block of Addison and the 500 block of Uvedale. There are other cases pending and we expect more charges will be forthcoming when the case is indicted by the Cook County Grand Jury.

I just wanted to thank those residents who call in suspicious activity to the police department as that helps solve cases. Many of our crimes are solved because of alert residents or business owners who contact police about something that is out of the ordinary. The cooperation and support the police department receives from our residents is outstanding.
