LAKE BLUFF-A burglar or burglars broke into an east Lake Bluff home Oct. 19 taking jewelry and electronic equipment, according to Lake Bluff Deputy Police Chief Mike Hosking.
Hosking said no one was home at the time. He said an unknown person or persons forced their way into the home in the 100 block of East Hawthorne Court between 9 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. through sliding glass doors.
“There was some damage to the doors,” Hosking said. “An iPad and jewelry were taken. One of the more unusual items was an NCAA championship soccer ring from the University of Wisconsin.”
The investigation is continuing, according to Hosking. Police have checked the neighborhood but are looking for more.
“We conducted a neighborhood canvass and talked to the neighbors,” Hosking said. “If anyone saw anything we would like to talk to them.”
This is the first burglary in Lake Bluff since June 13, according to Hosking.
There have been four break-ins and a foiled attempt in neighboring Lake Forest between Sept. 1 and Oct. 14, according to a previous Daily North Shore story. Deputy Lake Forest Police Chief Karl Walldorf said at the time this was unusual activity in a city which has an average of 1.5 per month.
