A bartender on the 1300 block of West Dundee Road reported that two patrons exchanged words and one was waiting for the other to go outside at 12:10 a.m. Oct. 4.  Security escorted the other patron to his car and the officer advised the first patron that he is not to return to the facility.  

A resident of the 700 block of Weidner Road reported finding burnt matches in the entryway of the building at 4:40 p.m. Oct. 4.  The resident then saw three teenagers running from the area toward Buffalo Grove High School. An officer was unable to locate the teens.


A resident reported that when he returned to his car at 3:10 p.m. Oct. 2 on the 700 block of South Buffalo Grove Road, he was approached by two people in a white van. The people wanted to know if the resident wanted to have the damage on his car repaired. When the resident checked, he found a large scratch on the passenger side quarter panel that was not there when he parked the car. The resident declined the offer for repair and believed that the people were the offenders.

A resident reported that someone tied a tie to his vehicle’s front passenger rim and his passenger side windshield wiper between 7:20 a.m. and 6 p.m. Oct. 3 in the Metra parking lot.  When he drove off, the tie tightened and bent the windshield wiper.

Graffiti was found spray-painted on garage doors at 11:20 a.m. Oct. 4 on the 600 block of Hapsfield Lane. 


A resident of the 1200 block of East Deerfield Parkway reported that someone stole his 2002 Acura RSX from the parking lot between 6:30 p.m. Oct. 2 and 7 a.m. Oct. 3.  The resident still had possession of his keys and the car was paid for.


A resident told police that she received a text message Oct. 3 from her estranged husband telling her to be in court for a custody hearing.  The resident thought the message was in violation of a court order, and when she called the court, she was told that the custody case was not up on that date. While an officer was at the residence, the resident’s attorney called and advised her to be in court. There was no evidence of a court order.
