OMG PD: Someone's Been Sleeping in My Bed!
Here's a look at some of the craziest crimes from around the area.
Today we're introducing a new feature on Patch called OMG PD. It's a collection of some of the most interesting and bizarre crimes from around the area in recent days.
Armed to the teeth
Daryl Florenco Dourado, 25, of the 1500 block of Acorn Court in Lombard, was arrested at 10:25 p.m. June 15 near 95th Street and Reflection Drive, Naperville police said. He was charged with unlawful use of weapons, operating a vehicle without insurance, speeding 30 MPH or more over the limit and disobeying a traffic control device. His bond was $200. Dourado was stopped for running a red light and traveling 103 MPH in a 45-MPH zone. Under the driver's seat were two cans of pepper spray, metal knuckles and an expandable baton.
A woman renting a room at the Motel 6 in Joliet unlocked the door to find a man sleeping in the bed. And the man was apparently doing more than just sleeping during his unauthorized (free) stay at the 1850 McDonough St. motel, as cleaning women later found an unspecified number of condoms on the floor of the violated room, Joliet police said. Motel 6 staff alerted police to the freeloader Tuesday. The man apparently got into the room by pushing an air conditioner through a window. The air conditioner was damaged in the break-in, police said.
The garden hoses had it coming
Someone entered the backyards of four houses and damaged garden hoses and a trampoline with unknown sharp items sometime overnight June 5 in the 3000 block of Patterson, Montgomery police said. Anyone with information should contact Aurora Area Crime Stoppers (630) 892-1000 or Montgomery Police Crime Tip Line at (630) 897-8707, Ext 3300.
Times they are a changin'
The vending machine belonging to Freeman’s Sports in Yorkville was damaged and about $150 taken from the 100 block of West Fox Street between June 2 and June 4, Yorkville police said. About $3,000 in damage was done to the machine.
