Unless otherwise indicated, anyone named in these reports has only been charged with a crime. The cases have not yet been adjudicated.
Riverside police reported that a home in the 400 block of Blackhawk Road was burglarized sometime between 7:30 a.m. and 1:45 p.m. on June 2. A full inventory of items removed from the residence was not available. However, police said that jewelry and power tools were among the items missing.
The burglar gained entry to the home by kicking in the locked rear patio door. The locks were still intact, but the inside door frame had been shattered by the force of the blow. Once inside the burglar ransacked the house. Riverside enlisted the help of the Illinois State Police crime lab to help process the scene.
