Hoffman Estates police alerted area police departments of a crime involving felony theft over $300 and felony criminal damage to property that occurred at 155 Carthage Lane — just southeast of Higgins and Roselle. Apparently the offenders charged $1,000 to do some work at the house, and then sprayed the house with an unknown substance — damaging the home.
The crime is reported to have occurred at 3:45 p.m. Sunday.
Two male/white offenders were involved in the crime. Only one was described and possibly known by a witness. He was described as a male/white, 5’11” 175 LBS.
The offenders were driving a newer model white pickup truck with large blue lettering “SAM” on the front doors of the pickup truck.
The pickup truck was last seen heading westbound on Carthage Lane from the scene.
