The following information was provided by the Lake Forest Police Department. Please note that an arrest does not constitute a finding of guilt. Only a court of law can make that determination.
Lake Forest Police Department officers responded to a house in the 1700 north block of Waukegan Road for a report of a residential burglary. Between Tuesday, October 1st and Wednesday, October 9th, the front door of the residence was forced open and a 35” Samsung television and two white Bose speakers were taken from the home. Several other areas of the house were ransacked.
Two weeks prior to the incident, on Friday, Sept. 13, a home on the 1400 block of Kurtis Lane was burglarized between 9 a.m. and 5:50 p.m. while the home was unoccupied. The rear door of the locked home was pried open and several rooms ransacked. The owners reported more than $300,000 worth of jewelry missing from the residence.
GazeboNews asked Deputy Police Chief Karl Walldorf if incidents are related. He said: “We really have no information in-hand that would indicate they are related, but it is always possible. We have no suspect description in either case. They are separated in time, geographically and items taken but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t the same guy(s).”
