In-state warrant arrest—Steven M. Eck, of 500 W. Queen Creek Rd. in Chandler, Ariz., turned himself in to Clarendon Hills Police at 1:50 p.m. on April 5 after a warrant was issued for his arrest on a possession of a controlled substance charge out of Naperville.
Eck, 47, posted bond and was released with a court date.
Identity theft—A resident from the 400 block of Hudson Avenue reported to the Clarendon Hills Police Department on April 9 that their personal information was used by an unknown suspect to file a false tax return.
The case is very similar to one that was reported recently in Hinsdale. While trying to file an actual return via Turbo Tax, the Clarendon Hills victim was told that a return had already been filed in their name.
The police department expects the IRS to follow up on the case.
Theft—Five pansy plants were stolen from a condo in the 5700 block of Holmes Avenue between 9:30 a.m. and 1:05 p.m. April 6.
The plants belonged to the condo association. Each plant was worth 98 cents, according to police.
Theft—Two waste stickers were removed from bags of grass clippings by an unknown suspect in the 0-10 block of Tuttle Avenue according to a report from 4:37 p.m. April 9.
The homeowner left the bags out to be picked up that morning and when they returned home later, the bags were still there and the stickers were removed.
