Multiple Residential Burglaries Reported in Mount Prospect and Arlington Heights

Multiple burglaries have been reported this past week in Arlington Heights and Mount Prospect — mostly on the south side of town.

Starting on February 13, 2013 and continuing through February 16, 2013 Mount Prospect burglaries have been reported in an area bordered by Central Road, Golf Road, Main Street (Route 83), and Meier Road.

In Arlington Heights, three residential burglaries occurred in the 1300 block of South Walnut Avenue and and the 1300 block of South Ridge Avenue — one street over — on Saturday February 16, 2013.

In three of the Arlington Heights cases on the south side, burglars forcibly entered rear doors, and the offender(s) threw drawers on the floor and left with pillow cases– apparently filled with items. Offenders went through armoires, dresser drawers, nightstands, hutches, and in one house removed a safe that was bolted to the floor.
