Arlington Heights police received a report about 8:17 p.m. Tuesday of theft in the 1000 block of South Walnut Avenue. Police received a report that an offender entered an open attached garage, entered a black 2011 Audi A6 parked inside the garage, searched through a wallet in the car, and removed cash with some receipts. The resident witnessed the offender leaving the garage. When asked why he was there, the offender explained he was selling candy for a fundraiser. The resident had declined the sales pitch and thought the offender was leaving. When the resident looked back toward the garage, the offender was again leaving the garage. The juvenile was cooperative with the resident, and was described to police as a male/black wearing blue jeans and a white T-shirt.
Arlington Heights police responded and found the juvenile in the area. He was discovered to be a 14-year-old resident of Chicago, taken into custody, and charged with local ordinance violations — Theft and Criminal Trespass.
United Achievers Group did have a valid solicitor permit through the Village of Arlington Heights. The area representative turned over the remaining permits for the other workers and left the area.
