Police Blotter: 13 Teens Charged With Underage Alcohol Offenses

Hinsdale police reports, July 3-10


Passenger Charged With Underage Drinking

Clifford J. Van Wormer, of the 100 block of South Vine Street in Hinsdale, was charged with unlawful use of alcohol after the 19-year-old was a passenger in a car stopped by police for a missing tail light at 12:28 a.m. near the intersection of County Line Road and 7th Street.

The driver of the vehicle, a 16-year-old Hinsdale girl, was cited for driving without a valid license past curfew and with one taillight. Another passenger, also a 16-year-old Hinsdale girl, was cited for being out past curfew.

Van Wormer was released to appear in court.


Anybody Home?

Oliver McCracken, of the 2000 block of South Gaylord Street in Denver, was charged with unlawful use of alcohol by a person under 21 after he entered a home in the 500 block of Walker Road at 2:42 a.m. and appeared confused upon entry.

McCracken, 18, said he previously lived in the Walker Road home, where police found him. Police said he was under the influence of alcohol.

Deputy Chief Mark Wodka said the homeowners did not want to pursue a trespassing complaint, so McCracken was charged only with underage drinking.

The complainant was the home’s owner, who was away from the house but had been informed that there might be a party there.

Arrested at the home were Temiloluwa O. Adelakun, 18, of the 600 block of Lakeside Drive, Hinsdale; Aaron S. Cheever, 18, of the 100 block of 59th Street in Willowbrook; James J.
