La Grange Park (IL) Fire Department Apparatus Burglarized

On Wednesday, October 27th at approximately 2:00 p.m., the La Grange Park (IL) Police Department was alerted by a resident walking their dog of a possible burglary to a La Grange Park Fire Department vehicle.

Officers were dispatched to the 900 block of Forest Road where La Grange Park Ladder Truck #1219 was parked during a fire drill at Forest Road School. The resident had observed two black male subjects exit a gray-colored Porsche SUV and open the side compartments to the ladder truck.

Upon officers’ arrival and with the help of Fire Department personnel, it was determined that several pieces of equipment were removed from two storage compartments on the ladder truck and three saws and a generator were taken. A neighboring jurisdiction had a similar incident occur earlier in the day with a similar description of the offenders and vehicle.

Shortly before 4:00 p.m., the La Grange Park Police Department was notified by the Chicago Police Department that they had recovered the stolen property from a gray-colored Porsche that was used in another attempted burglary to a construction vehicle. The La Grange Park Police Department was also informed that all occupants inside the gray-colored Porsche were being detained by the Chicago Police Department for further investigation.

This incident is still under investigation and the Police Department would ask anyone with information to contact the Investigations Division at 1-708-352-7711 x207.
