The following incidents were listed in the official reports of the Northbrook Police Department. Readers are reminded that an arrest by police does not constitute a finding of guilt; only a court of law can make that determination.
Someone stole on the night of July 17 two air conditioners, two furnaces, a sink, a sump pump and a table saw from a house under construction on the 3200 block of Lakeside. The total loss was estimated at $41,000.
A resident of the 2500 block of Maple reported July 21 that a men’s Trek BMX 26-inch bicycle was stolen from his unlocked garage, though he didn’t report it. He also discovered July 19 that a men’s Pivit Hard Line 26-inch bicycle also was stolen from the garage. The total loss was estimated at $550.
Albert A. Chrzastowski, 18, of 3480 Sorrel Drive, Northbrook, was arrested and charged July 16 with residential burglary after police said that a homeowner who lives on the 3400 block of Bordeaux Drive allegedly caught him coming out of his garage with food from his garage refrigerator. Chrzastowski, who was detained by the homeowner until police arrived, also was riding a bicycle that was reported stolen, police said. A July 20 court date was set.
Ramon Velazques, 19, of 7331 Kenneth, Lincolnwood, was arrested and cited July 21 with drug possession after police said that marijuana was found on him while he was in the skate park on the 1700 block of Techny. A Sept. 6 court date was set.
Someone on July 21 reported a man exposing his genitals near the pump station behind the sled hill at Meadowhill Park South on the 1700 block of Techny. Officers located a person matching his description behind the pump station wearing only spandex underwear and a T-shirt. But he told police that he took his pants off and left them in the car after working out, because of the heat. The complainant could not make a positive identification, so the suspect was not arrested. Instead, he was told that he is no longer allowed on Northbrook Park District property, and his picture and vehicle information was forwarded to the park district.
Anna M. Mastalerz, 27, of 2206 S. Goebbert Road, Arlington Heights, was cited July 16 for retail theft after police said she attempted to leave Whole Foods on the 800 block of Willow Road without paying for merchandise valued at $45. An Aug. 29 court date was set.
A man visiting a business July 21 on the 1300 block of Shermer Road left his wallet on the counter. When he realized what he had done, he returned to where he has last seen it, but it was gone. It contained $500 cash, credit cards, and identification.
Someone stole on July 21 took a 26-inch gray/brown Trek girls bike that was left on the side of a house on the 2100 block of Illinois. The loss was estimated at $300.
