OMG PD: Odd Crimes in Our Patch Region

This week: Bad drinking decisions and stolen fish.

Local police departments provided the following reports. In all incidents where an arrest occurred, a charge is merely an accusation and not evidence of guilt.

A Niles woman allegedly asked for $7 worth of blue crabs and $159 worth of sea bass from the fish counter of a Niles grocery store. Store personnel told police she removed the wrapping from the sea bass and put the fish into the bag with the crabs, paid the $7 and left.

Evanston police asked a 22-year-old Chicago man why he was in someone’s yard, apparently intoxicated at 5:30 p.m. He told police he was lost, so they asked him to leave and hailed a cab for him. He was on his way back to Chicago when police said he jumped out of the cab’s window. The man was arrested for disorderly conduct and disobeying a police order.

A necklace with the word “Luck” written in Hebrew was stolen during a family party in Skokie.

After getting into a disagreement with someone over whether bicycles could be ridden at a Northbrook skate park, a 13-year-old from Deerfield took a black marker and underlined the rules on the sign at the park’s entrance, according to police. He also added “no trains” to the sign.

A blue and white adult tricycle was stolen in Evanston.

A 33-year-old Skokie woman was pulled over for driving without her headlights in Skokie. She told police that she had just come back from the Hard Rock Hotel in downtown Chicago and only had one drink. Her blood alcohol content level was .144.

A woman allegedly stole tequila, rolls, doughnuts and chicken tenders from an Evanston grocery store.

A Glencoe resident rescued a baby skunk stuck in his window well after he took police advice and slid a wooden board into the well, allowing the skunk to climb out and scamper off.

That's one very strong drink A 33-year-old Skokie woman was pulled over for driving without her headlights in Skokie. She told police that she had just come back from the Hard Rock Hotel in downtown Chicago and only had one drink. Her blood alcohol content level was .144. <><><> My guess is that is might've been an extra-large Long Island Iced Tea.☺

Actually, the driver (and report) said she had one Sake, which is a Japanese alcoholic beverage. But yes, that is one strong drink! ;)
