The following incidents were listed in the official reports of the Lincolnwood Police Departments. Readers are reminded that an arrest by police does not constitute a finding of guilt; only a court of law can make that determination.
Geovanni Hernandez, 24, of 140 Center St., Bensenville, was arrested on the 6400 block of Cicero at 2:21 a.m. July 8 and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol. Hernandez was arrested after police found him sleeping inside his vehicle at a gas station and allegedly found a full can of Modelo beer in the back seat of the vehicle. Hernandez also was charged with unauthorized use of a handicap placard, illegal transportation of alcohol and driving with a suspended license.
A handicap placard was reported stolen from a vehicle parked on the 3600 block of Pratt Avenue at 11 p.m. June 29. The placard was taken from a glove compartment of a vehicle parked in the driveway of a residence.
Rosario Burak, 45, of 6616 Kostner Ave., was charged with theft after her arrest at the Lincolnwood Town Center Kohl’s at 6:25 p.m. July 6. Police said Burak allegedly tried to leave the store without purchasing $167 worth of clothing.
A Pomeranian dog was reported stolen from the 7200 block of Crawford Avenue at 2:30 p.m. July 5. The 9-year-old male dog got loose from its owner’s yard on June 30, and a witness later reported seeing a female stop her vehicle and pick up the dog.
