Police responded to a store in the 5600 block of Touhy Sept. 10 to speak with a 25-year-old Schiller Park man who said his debit card and cell phone were stolen July 21, and that his bank told him the unknown offender had emptied his account. The person made five purchases, for $867, $101, $823, $105 and $3.04, on July 21. An employee told him the times of the transactions; the loss prevention personnel said the bank no longer had video, but the corporate office might. No reason was given as to why the report was made nearly two months after the incident. The offender purchased electronics and bought protections plans for them; the protection plans may yield the person's name and address. Police are investigating.
