Police alert residents of recent burglaries

Hinsdale police officers responded to a home in the 200 block of East Walnut at 9:41 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 30, after the homeowner reported that a suspicious vehicle had pulled into the driveway. Officers attempted to stop the vehicle as it was leaving the area but it fled at a high rate of speed. Officers pursued the vehicle southbound on Interstate 294 to the Stevenson Expressway where they lost sight of the vehicle in traffic.

Hinsdale police also are investigating a residential burglary that occurred in the 500 block of North York Road last week. The front door to the home was pried open and, after the report was filed, the homeowner discovered jewelry had been taken.

Police believe both of these cases are related and remind residents to set their alarms and immediately dial 9-1-1 if they observe a suspicious vehicle or person.
