The following is a release from the Hinsdale Police Department:
The Hinsdale Police Department is investigating an incident of residential burglary that took place in the 300 block of West Maple Street Saturday between 5 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.
Forced entry was made into the residence through a rear door, and various pieces of jewelry and U.S. currency were taken from the home. There is no suspect information available at this time.
If you have information that may assist the police department related to these incidents, or video surveillance footage from a private residential video surveillance system that may aid this investigation, please contact the investigations division at (630) 789-7070.
As the investigation in these burglaries continues, the police department is requesting the assistance of the community to continue being vigilant in reporting any suspicious circumstances in your neighborhood. In particular, residents are reminded to be aware of any person(s) that may appear at their doorstep (or their neighbor’s) wishing to provide a service that had not been requested, asking for someone that does not live there, or is acting like they must be at the wrong address. Residents should acknowledge the presence of persons at their doorstep, but should not open the door unless the person is expected.
In addition, use deadbolts on doors and residential security systems should be used, if so equipped, when leaving the residence or retiring for the evening. Residents should also consider the installation and use of video surveillance devices which may not only provide early warning to a homeowner of a person on their property, but likewise be used as an investigative tool in identifying suspects.
If you observe behavior that is unusual or suspicious, contact the Hinsdale Police Department by calling 911. It is important to report an accurate description of the person(s) clothing, height, gender, and race. If you observe a vehicle, note the color, make, style, and/or license plate.
