People Newspapers dropped a roundup of different crimes committed in Highland Park and University Park last week. Here are some choice bits:

“A larcenist with a taste for luxury goods stole a long list of items worth between $2,500 and $30,000 from a specialty store in Snider Plaza before 4:40 p.m., including cash, tote bags, a three-strand pearl necklace, makeup products, L. Bartlett sunglasses, an iPad and prescription medications.”

“A greedy thief made multiple attempts to submit fraudulent checks totaling $80,000 on the account of a resident of the 3600 block of Mockingbird Lane before 8 a.m. The resident’s bank foiled the scheme and froze her account.”

“A joyrider took off in a Chevy Suburban that had been left unlocked with the key fob inside between 2:30 and 3:15 p.m. on Westminster Avenue. The suburban contained a car seat, booster seat, wallet, purse, credit card, and driver’s license.”

“A bitter pedestrian was out for revenge after a driver honked at him to let him know he had the right-of-way to cross the street in the 4200 block of Oaklawn Avenue before 11:35 a.m. on May 15. The pedestrian allegedly kicked the honker’s vehicle, leaving a dent.”

“The drunk driver of a Ford F150 struck six parked vehicles before officers arrested him at 11:23 p.m. in the 3200 block of Rankin Avenue.”
