Bank Account Fraudulently Closed
Police say a person fraudulently closed the Chase bank account of a Hinsdale resident and stole the $5,800 that was in the account some time between May 24, 2010, and June 14, 2010, though the victim only discovered the offense recently and reported it to police on Nov. 30.
