In an hour’s time Tuesday night, Arlington Heights police had three shoplifting cases to process. All three cases of retail theft were about the 6:00 o’clock hour Tuesday night. At Kohl’s, Arlington Heights police arrested a female adult, at Target police arrested a male, and at Jewel/Osco at 1860 South Arlington Heights Road a male/Hispanic fled and got away with several bottles of liquor that was stolen from the store. The male/Hispanic got into a white or silver truck, van or SUV that was driven by a female driver. The male/Hispanic was described as wearing a black vest, brown jacket, and blue sweat pants. A store security agent got a license plate on the vehicle — Arlington Heights police are investigating.
Exactly one week ago Arlington Heights police caught up with a male/Hispanic shoplifter a few blocks west of the same Jewel/Osco after security saw a suspect walk out of the store with a bottle of José Cuervo without paying. The suspect was arrested and taken into custody at Arlington Heights police headquarters.
