$100 Bill Scam Hits Local Shops

The following information is from the Northbrook Police Department. An arrest is not an indication of guilt.


A complainant told police that a man came into a store in the 200 block of Skokie Blvd. on Feb. 9 at 7 p.m. and purchased an item for $6.95 and inquired if the store could make change for a $100 bill. While the employee was making change for him, he ordered two other items from another employee for $2.18. Both employees provided him with change and he departed the store. The complainant then noticed that the $100 bill was missing. Glencoe police advised that two days prior to this theft they had a similar incident occur in their Village.

Car window smashed

The victim said that two male offenders smashed the rear passenger side window of his BMW in the 1100 block of Waukegan Road and fled the area northbound on Waukegan Rd. in a black Nissan Feb. 12 at 7:25 p.m.  The victim heard his car alarm activating and saw the Nissan leaving the area.
