DUI and criminal damage to property complaints keep New Lenox police busy.



Thief grabs name for tax return

Police are investigating an identity theft complaint filed by someone from the 2500 block of Kingsway Avenue. Someone used this taxpayer's name to file an income tax return.

DUI and no insurance

Two ticketed for driving on suspended licenses

Jamie Capers, 40, Fort Wayne, IN was stopped at Veterans Parkway and Maple Street when a random registration check showed his license had been suspended. 

Driving with no valid license

Luis Zamudio, 27, Joliet, was stopped by police at Route 30 and Interstate 80 when a registration check came back with information that his license was invalid. He was cited for no valid license, no valid registration and operating an uninsured vehicle.

Criminal damage to property 

Someone called police to the parking lot at Walmart in the 500 block of E. Lincoln Highway to complain that a vehicle had been damaged.

Two ways to stay connected:

Police blotter information is provided by the New Lenox Police Department. Charges are not evidence of guilt. They are a record of police actions taken on a given day, and persons charged with a crime are presumed innocent until proven guilty in court. If you or a family member are charged or cited and the case is subsequently adjudicated, we encourage you to notify the editor. We will verify and report the outcome. If you have information about an unsolved crime, call the Investigations Unit at 815-462-6100.
