A warrant has been issued for Michael B Edwards, 39, of Waukegan, Illinois for burglary, according to Gurnee Police Department.
Gurnee police report that on the morning of Thursday August 29, 2019 at approximately 5:07 AM, officers responded to a residence in the block of 4000 Kenwood Avenue for a burglary to motor vehicle report. The victim’s vehicle was parked in the driveway overnight and the doors of the vehicle were unlocked. The glovebox and center console had been opened and items were thrown throughout the vehicle. Several items from inside the vehicle had been taken.
Investigators were able to obtain video surveillance of the suspect entering vehicles on the night of the incident. Gurnee Police Department did not specify whether the surveillance image was captured on the same block as the report vehicle burglary. The image of a suspect was posted on a hyperlocal social networking app — possibly Ring.
Gurnee Police Department stated the images were posted on social media and the public was asked to help with identifying the suspect. The Gurnee Police Department posted two images of the suspect on Facebook at 10:40 a.m. on Thursday August 29, 2019. Within hours, investigators had received a tip on the suspect’s identity. A commenter suggested it would be nice to know in what neighborhoods the burglaries were happening. Another commenter replied “Dorchester Avenue” with no cross street according to a post the commenter said was seen on the Ring app.
After a thorough investigation, investigators identified the suspect as Michael B. Edwards and obtained a warrant for his arrest on Friday, August 30, 2019.
Attempts to locate Edwards have been unsuccessful. The Gurnee Police Department asked for the public’s assistance on September 4, 2019 at 1:37 p.m. to help to locate Michael B. Edwards. An apparent police mug shot was included with the September 4, 2019 post, but no physical description or criminal history information was included with the post. Gurnee police said Michael B. Edwards is not believed to armed or dangerous, but police advise that if anyone sees him they should not approach him, and call the police.
Gurnee Police Department advised that all suspects accused of a crime are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
