Car Scratched, Tires Slashed & Tailgate Taken—All in New Lenox

The New Lenox police are investigating a series of vehicle-related crimes

Vandals and a thief struck in New Lenox recently, and the crooks targeted cars for their crimes.

Police learned of the first incident shortly after 4 p.m. May 27. An officer was sent over to Grandview Drive and learned "an unknown person scratched his vehicle," police said.

Shortly before 7 a.m. the following day, an officer was sent to Rossford Lane and was told by a man there that "an unknown person removed the tailgate from his truck," police said.

Then, about 6:30 a.m. Saturday, an officer was sent to London Road where he met with a woman who told him "an unknown person slashed her tires," police said.

Detectives from the New Lenox Police Department are investigating all of these things.

Lots of crooks, vandals and thieves in New Lenox. Speaking of crooks avoid Rollie's car care on Cedar!

My car was also vandalized - unsure when or where it happened. Entire back passenger light broken, tons of damage to passenger rear of car. Did not even file a police report as I have a $500 and would probably do no good as I'm sure no one saw it happen.

You should still file a report so the police can step up patrols in your hood. Sounds like the work of supervised teens. Inform your neighbors so you can all look out for each other. Keep some outdoor lights on at night. Such a shame some kids behave like that.
