Police officers from Arlington Heights responded just after 4:46 a.m. Thursday, September 8, 2022 after a homeowner reported a security camera (ring camera) just captured video of a suspicious person on his property and in the backyard on Carlyle Place south of Mayfair Road. The suspicious person was described as a male/black, unknown age, with a cell phone camera light or cell phone flashlight lighting up the backyard. The suspicious person was observed in four different backyards. Arlington Heights police responded immediately and discovered the suspicious person on a nearby street. He told police he was looking for his cat.
Police identified the man, and no arrests were indicated.
The suspicious incident is the second overnight suspicious incident in the neighborhood reported in the past two weeks. A person reported on the Neighbors app that a suspicious person tried to walk in the house (or check the door) at 1:30 a.m., then rang the doorbell. The video time-stamped at 1:35 a.m. Thursday, August 25, 2022 shows an unknown person at the door described as a male/white wearing a T-shirt and jeans or dark pants, and carrying a cell phone.
Whatever the explanations for these suspicious persons’ actions, the usefulness of security cameras for awareness and investigations, if necessary, is apparent. Residents in the Stonegate neighborhood in Arlington Heights might want to check their security camera archives, especially between about 4:00 am. and 4:50 a.m. Thursday, September 8, 2022.
