Between 1:00AM and 7:30AM on May 15, 2016, an unknown offender(s) entered a residence in the 600 block of Park Dr.  Entry was made from an unlocked first floor rear door to the residence.  The residence was occupied at the time of the incident.  The living room/dining room/kitchen areas were entered.  A purse containing credit cards and personal information, along with a Mac Book and iPad were taken.  There is no suspect description available at this time. 
The case is under investigation and if you have any information please contact the Kenilworth Police Department at 847-251-2141.

  • Make sure you have sturdy metal or solid wood doors at all entries into your home and that sliding glass and similar doors are properly secured.
  • Make sure every external door has a sturdy, well-installed dead bolt lock. 
  • Instead of hiding keys around the outside of your home, store an extra key at the Police Department or with a neighbor.
  • Thieves hate bright lights. Install outside lights and keep them on at night.
  • Prune back shrubbery so it doesn't hide doors or windows.
  • If you travel, create the illusion that you're at home by getting some timers that will turn lights on and off in different areas of your house throughout the evening. Lights burning 24 hours a day signal an empty house.  Call the Police Department and add your home to the Vacant House Watch.
  • Leave shades, blinds, and curtains in normal positions. And don't let your mail pile up! Call the post office to stop delivery or have a neighbor pick it up.
  • Consider installing a security alarm system; if you already have one — be sure to use it regularly.
  • Request a free home security inspection from the Police Department.
