Northbrook Police: Identity Theft At Circuit City

Also featured in this week's police blotter: damage to car back sides and change stolen from a car's cup holder.

The following items were part of a police report provided by the Northbrook Police Department. 

Does Wicker Park extradite fugitives?

On Nov. 26, a wicker basket was stolen from a front porch on the 600 block of Charlemagne Dr., according to police. 

The change heist was especially insulting. 

Police say they received a report last week that someone entered an unlocked car on the 2200 block of Asbury Rd. and removed a Garmin GPS unit and about $1.50 in change from a cup holder. 

Has anyone checked under the bumper for treasure?

Between Nov. 19 and 20, someone scratched an X on the rear bumper of a Lexus parked on the 2300 block of Shermer Rd., according to police. 

An unfortunate way to discover Circuit City still exists. 

Between Oct. 15 and Nov. 29, someone from the 4100 block of Sunset Ln. reported an unknown person opened a Circuit City charge account in the Northbrook resident's name and charged $659.53, according to police. The victim reported additional, unsuccessful attempts to open credit accounts at other businesses, police say. 

Small Rocks, Big Velocity

On Dec. 1, someone on the 1800 block of Maple Ave. reported that an unknown person shattered the rear glass of a company car using small rocks, according to police.
