The following incidents were listed among the official reports of the Buffalo Grove police department. Readers are reminded that an arrest does not constitute a finding of guilt. Only a court of law can make that determination.

A thief entered an unlocked house July 26 on Trace Drive, stealing a laptop computer.
A thief stole cash July 28 from an unlocked car on the 1000 block of Whitehall Drive.

A Buffalo Grove resident of an unlisted address left his juvenile daughter home alone on July 30. When he returned, he found “two empty cases of beer, two empty bottles of Jack Daniels, used shot glasses, three large holes in the wall and a wireless keyboard missing,” and his daughter also nowhere to be found, the report reads. A police social worker is following up.
A resident of Oak Creek Drive became dismayed July 24 when the neighbors above her threw cigarettes off their balcony. The upstairs neighbors responded by pouring water through their balcony, soaking her patio chairs and table.
