Car burglary suspect stopped with possibly stolen items / Are they yours?

Earlier this morning, at about 2:30 a.m., patrol officers found trespassed vehicles in the 400 block of Harmony Dr. and 0-100 block of South Sycamore Ln.  Someone had entered the vehicles and strewn items about but nothing appeared missing.  A short time later, officers located a suspicious subject in the 300 block of John St., just a couple blocks away from the trespassed vehicles. 

In the suspect's possession were the following items: a gallon size plastic bag with change, a donation can (with change) for a social service organization for teens in Indiana, 3 silver earrings, a cactus keychain, a gold watch, and a white tooth crown/cap.  (Yes, you read that right.)  Since the suspect could not be linked to any crimes, the items were photographed and he was released.

At 7:13 a.m., we also took a car burglary report in the 2400 block of Imgrund Rd., where a tripod and two measuring wheels were taken from a tool box, but this case is probably not related to the other two.
If any of the listed items may be yours or if your video security system may have pertinent video, please call (630) 897-8705, extension 610 or email

If your vehicle may have been trespassed or burglarized, please call (630) 897-8705 so an officer can respond to investigate.

Finally, we encourage all residents to do the #9pmRoutine, which will prevent most car burglaries & trespasses.
