THEFT OF PROPERTY 

An officer responded to a report of theft in the 3300 block of Cornell Avenue at approximately 12:15 PM. There he met with a woman who stated that between December 1 and December 22, someone had stolen three different rings from a safe inside her residence. She believes it may have occurred when an exterminator had access to her home, but she isn't sure exactly what day the exterminator was present. A report was filed with the HPDPS. 

BURGLARY OF A VEHICLE 

At approximately 1:30 PM, an officer met with a man in the HPSV in response to a reported vehicle burglary. The victim stated that he had parked his company truck in the 4200 block of Mockingbird at approximately 5:30 AM that morning when he went to work in the village. When he returned at approximately 6:15 AM, he found that an unknown person had used a prying instrument to open the two toolboxes in the passenger side of his truck. Some of the victim's person tools had also been removed. 

UNATTENDED VEHICLE 

At approximately 4:27 AM, an officer observed a vehicle turn quickly onto the 4800 block of Auburndale, park against the curb, and turn off the lights. Although the officer didn't see anyone exit the vehicle, by the time they approached it, it was clear that the driver had fled while someone else was asleep in the passenger seat. When the police awakened the remaining person, he stated that he was homeless and knew very little about the driver or why he would flee the vehicle. The officer ran the vehicle's license plates and discovered that it had been reported stolen from University Park. The vehicle was impounded and the homeless man was released with his belongings. 

BURGLARY OF HABITATION 

An officer was dispatched to the 3500 block of Gillon Avenue in response to a call about a burglary at approximately 11:35 AM. The victim stated that when she approached her unsecured vehicle, she noticed the contents of her center console had been dispersed on the front seats and her black leather gloves had been stolen. There is video evidence of the suspect, which was turned into the police. 

UNAUTHORIZED USE OF VEHICLE

At approximately 9:53 PM, an officer was dispatched to the 3600 block of Beverly Drive in regards to an unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. The victim arrived home to find his vehicle missing, and he confirmed that no one in his family had taken it. The housekeeper had last seen the vehicle the day before at approximately 12:00 PM. The victim then tracked the vehicle with his phone and saw that it was located in Irving. He believes one of the workers who had access to his home the day before may have taken the keys from inside the house and used the vehicle without permission. The victim notified the police and the vehicle was towed from Irving and returned to the owner.

FAILURE TO LEAVE ID AT ACCIDENT 

An accident occurred at the intersection of Airline Road and Drexel Drive at approximately 3:30 PM. The victim stated that he had been traveling down Airline Road when he started to stop for a stop sign. As he stopped, he noticed a vehicle on Drexel Drive lost control while attempting to stop. This made the driver swerve and hit the victim's vehicle. After the collision, it seemed as though the other driver was going to speak to the victim, but the suspect simply backed up, struck the victim's vehicle again, and then fled down Airline Road and turned onto Mockingbird.

FAILURE TO LEAVE ID AT ACCIDENT 

At approximately 10:21 PM, an officer was dispatched to the intersection of Mockingbird Lane and Hillcrest Avenue. The suspect involved in the accident had approached the victim's driver's side window, cussed at her, and then fled in his own vehicle without leaving behind the proper information. The suspect had rear-ended the vehicle, but the damage was fairly minor. The victim did obtain the suspect vehicle's license plate, which she gave to the police.
