Arlington Heights police responded about 10:37 a.m. Friday to a report of suspicious activity near Burlington Coat Factory, 30 West Rand Road. Police received a report that three suspicious men with a load of DeWalt tools in the back of a green Mercury Sable appeared to selling or fencing possible stolen goods. The suspicious men were described as two male/white subjects sitting in the front of the car and one male/black sitting in the back of the two-door sedan.
The male/black subject fled the area before the marked cars arrived, but a detective in an unmarked car rounded him up a few minutes later. He was described as a male/black about 5’10” 200 LBS with a bald head, and wearing a black jacket and black pants.
Police investigated the subjects, and transported the three subjects in custody to Arlington Heights Police Department Headquarters.
One of the male/white subjects was wearing an ankle monitor and a fake mustache.
Police towed the subjects’ green Mercury Sable station wagon to a police holding area.
