Guzman Resigns From Northbrook Police Amid Burglary Charges

Enrique Guzman is no longer a Northbrook employee, according to a Village Hall announcement.

Enrique Guzman, the Northbrook police officer who was charged with robbing a home while on duty last week, submitted his resignation from the department on Monday, Village Hall announced. 

Guzman "is no longer an employee of the Village," the release states. 

According to Northbrook Village President Sandy Frum, the state's attorney asked village officials to refrain from commenting on the case while the investigation continues.

Guzman was arrested after the FBI placed three hidden cameras in a home he was dispatched to investigate, the Chicago Tribune reports.

The camera footage caught Guzman entering a bedroom and pocketing a jewelry box with a fake diamond ring, which the FBI also planted, according to the Chicago Tribune. 

The 34-year-old and 12-year police department veteran was charged with felony burglary while on duty last week. 

He was released on a $30,000.00 bond and turned in his firearms, FOID card, and passport and placed on electronic monitoring as conditions of his bond, the village announced last week. 

His next court date was set for Friday, Feb. 22.

Not everybody that wares the blue uniform stands for law and order. They don't uphold the law. They think they are above the law.

A lot of crooked cops stand behind the blue wall of silence. That's another bad thing.
