Halloween Safety

If you are taking the kids trick-or-treating tomorrow, take some flashlights with you to remain visible. Statistically, twice as many kids are hit by cars on Halloween, more than any other day of the year. Even with reflective costumes, it is getting dark early now, so visibility is an issue. Flashlights really help.

Another issue is that Halloween is on Friday, so you have more people drinking and driving. Drivers under the influence of alcohol have increased reaction time so...

If you are taking the kids trick-or-treating tomorrow, take some flashlights with you to remain visible. Statistically, twice as many kids are hit by cars on Halloween, more than any other day of the year. Even with reflective costumes, it is getting dark early now, so visibility is an issue. Flashlights really help.

Another issue is that Halloween is on Friday, so you have more people drinking and driving. Drivers under the influence of alcohol have increased reaction time so be extra careful crossing the streets with the kids. Especially on side streets, drivers routinely only look straight ahead as they pause at stop signs. They do not come to a full stop and look around for pedestrians. A little extra caution goes a long way.

Garage Thieves

Just recently a burglar who was stealing from garages in Elmwood Park was arrested. Even though Elmwood Park is a distance from our neighborhood, this guy was on a bicycle so he was very mobile. The proceeds from the thefts were stuffed in his pockets.
What he was doing was simply going to garage doors and checking them until he found an open one. Once inside, he would steal cash & items from the cars parked in the garage. It...

Just recently a burglar who was stealing from garages in Elmwood Park was arrested. Even though Elmwood Park is a distance from our neighborhood, this guy was on a bicycle so he was very mobile. The proceeds from the thefts were stuffed in his pockets.
What he was doing was simply going to garage doors and checking them until he found an open one. Once inside, he would steal cash & items from the cars parked in the garage. It was real easy because people don't lock their cars once they park them in the garage. Moral of the story is that when you park in the garage, be sure to lock up the car, even if you lock the garage doors.

Guy hanging around Cumberland/Lawrence

There is a homeless man named Dale hanging around the walgreens on Cumberland/Lawrence. He was just released from prison. He punched an 80 year old man in the face at the Jewel across the street a few years ago. He was sentenced 2 years. He is armed and dangerous. Chicago has banned him by he still hangs around in Norridge. I have seen him at Walgreens, and Butera in Norridge. Stay away from him. He is bound to snap like he did in the past. This is what he looks like:

  • Thank you for the info. Please let the Walgreens manager know. Last year there was a guy begging people for money, every morning, at the Jewel lot at Harlem/Foster. This guy was an alcoholic, you could smell the booze on his breath. I told the manager, they told him to leave the property. He has not come back since. The Walgreens manager has the right to ban anyone off the property.

  • joanie Resident of Jefferson Park

    Seen him today at Harlem/Higgins on the bench outside TBK around 3:15 pm.
