Hinsdale police officers conducting enhanced patrols due to burglaries and auto thefts occurring in neighboring jurisdictions observed two stolen vehicles in the area of Ninth and Madison streets at 3:30 a.m. Oct. 19, the department reported. Both vehicles fled from officers eastbound on 55th Street, and the pursuit was terminated due to speed.
A residential video from the 200 block of West Ninth shows multiple offenders exiting vehicles and checking car doors, and a resident in the 400 block of East Ninth reported that a wallet was removed from a vehicle.
This is second such incident in as many weeks after thieves hit the village in the overnight hours of Oct. 10-11 (see details above).
In a statement, the police department said proactive overnight patrols would continue and urged residents to help deter the crime pattern by locking vehicles and removing fobs every night.
