OMG PD: Car Thumpers, Screws Loose, iPad Jacked

Here's a round-up of recent and bizarre police report items from the area.


Three Strikes at 3:25 a.m.

Baljinnyam Tserennadmid, 37, of the 0-99 block of Vivaldi Court, Wheaton, was arrested at 3:25 a.m. Dec. 2 at Roosevelt Road and Blanchard Street, police said. She was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, speeding and endangering the life or health of a child.

Unlocked iPad

An iPad was stolen from an unlocked vehicle parked at Hadley Junior High School, 230 Hawthorne Boulevard, police said. The burglary took place between 1:40 and 3:30 p.m. Dec. 6.

"Library" Does Not Equal "Freebie"

An unknown person stole three video games from the Glen Ellyn Public Library, 400 Duane St. The theft was reported at 11:35 a.m. Dec. 3. The value of the items stolen was under $500.


Car Thumpers

Ryan Dennis Courtney, 27, of the 6N600 block of Brookhaven Lane, and William D. Signore, 23, of the 39W600 block of Carl Sandburg Road, were each charged at 11:30 p.m. Dec. 7 in the 200 block of West Main Street with disorderly conduct. According to the police report, an officer on foot patrol heard a car horn being used repeatedly and saw two men yelling at a female driver stopped at a traffic light. The officer said they also apparently were making contact with the car because he heard a thumping sound.

The officer said the woman then exited the car and began yelling at the two men. The woman, a Geneva resident, then got back into her car as the two men walked away, but she identified herself to the officer as he stopped Courtney and Signore. A West Chicago woman, who also had stopped at the same traffic light, told the officer she witnessed the incident. Both women told the officer the Geneva woman did nothing to provoke the incident. The two men were booked and released. Damage to the Geneva woman’s car was limited to some scuff marks, police said.


Couple of Loose Screws

A truck spilled its load of screws near Butterfield Road (Route 56) and River Road (Route 25) in North Aurora at about 2 p.m. Thursday, according to police. Traffic became congested while police attempted to speed up the clean up.

"Special thanks to Aurora Pack for lending their forklift with a large magnet that helped clean up the screws more quickly than anticipated," an e-mail alert from North Aurora police said.

The Butterfield and River roads intersection was back open by 2:52 p.m.


Dumpster Diver

A person was reported loading metal from a dumpster into his or her vehicle at 5 p.m. Dec. 2 on the 600 block of North Kingsland Drive, according to police. The business was advised to call 911 if the person returns.

If the metal was in the dumpster, why do they care if someone takes it. It was garbage to the business, but $$$ for the scrapper.

Did it ever occur to you that the dumpster was a recyle dumpster meant only for metal that the business used and received the cash for the metal?

Rob D I had to chuckle. Your name could be" Rob Dumpster". Just being silly. You are probably right that it was a scrap metal dumpster.
