Gurnee police responded to six residential burglaries Friday July 5, 2019 that were reported to have occurred overnight Thursday night July 4, 2019 to Friday morning Friday July 5, 2019. All of the victims’ homes were within close proximity in the Stonebrook neighborhood. Wallets and purses were removed from the interior of each home.

Gurnee Police Security Tips
Residents are encouraged to secure the doors leading to the interior of their homes. This includes front doors, back doors, garage doors and the door leading from the garage to the inside of the home.
Lighting around the exterior of a home is highly recommended. It remains the most effective night time crime prevention technique that can be employed. Residents should call 911 to report any suspicious activity.
The Stonebrook neighborhood is southwest of Gurnee Mills and west of SIx Flags
