Wheaton police reports, March 7-8


Criminal Damage

A woman at 12:09 p.m. reported that someone damaged the mailbox and mailbox post in front of her residence on the 1900 block of Sherwood Place. The damage occurred sometime between 6 p.m. March 7 and 6:30 a.m. March 8. She did not have any suspect information and does not suspect the plows from the recent snowstorm were the cause. An officer who examined the post and mailbox determined they were both struck by a blunt object. There were no footprints in the snow near the mailbox and post. The mailbox is valued at $150.

Scion Scratched Up

A woman at 11:32 a.m. reported that someone scratched up her 2006 Toyota Scion while it was unoccupied in a lot on the 1700 block of South Naperville Road. The incident occurred sometime between 9 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. March 7. The maroon or burgundy Scion SC2 was legally parked when someone scratched the driver's side midsection and rear quarter with an unknown sharp pointed object.

Illegal Grab and Go

A store employee at 4:22 a.m. reported a retail theft that just occurred on the 2000 block of South Naperville Road. At about 4:15 a.m., a man came to the counter with a bag of chips and a 20 oz. Red Bull energy drink. The man requested two cartons of Marlboro 27's cigarettes and produced a state ID when requested by the employee. The man attempted to use a credit card several times to complete the purchase, but it was repeatedly denied. The man swiped his card again, picked up the items from the counter and ran out the north door. The man then entered a car, which left the lot eastbound on East Loop Road. The cigarettes and other items were valued at $60.
