Rolling Meadows police responded about 11:45 p.m. Tuesday to a report of a burglary in progress in the 2200 block of Kirchoff, near Wilke. Police received a report that several subjects entered a vacant home, and a dark-colored car was parked in the driveway.
Police arrived within two minutes and found a car running in the driveway with the lights on. Police reported an unknown number of subjects in the house, and two subjects in the car on the driveway. The car turned out to be a red Chevy Impala.
Police checked the interior of the house, and immediately had one subject in custody, but another subject fled westbound and then southbound.
